I apoligize in advance if I missed this question somewhere in the sub-forum. I did a search and can't fine anything on this.
I have a Riki (Drummed in mink) and Rana in shiny (but not patent) black I bought recently and I am seeking advice on pre-conditioning and what to use. I also have a mahala which I have not done any pre-conditioning to, it is fine, but I really hardly use it.
Do you like lovin my bags? I need to put they guys to use, but want to do the right thing for them.
The only treatment (yet) that I have used on my Shiny Calf Mahala is the AppleGard spray. Anti-stain and rain, snow and salt protectant. I haven't had the guts to use a leather cleaner. For some reason, I'm worried I might lose the sheen.
On the drummed mink, see first if the sparkles are durable enough when you rub it?
