Some of you may be horrified when I question this...but...it could be a good idea? My mums friend who has always worked in the leather industry, in terms of protecting leather, cleaning it etc. And when my mum saw her the other day she quizzed her on what's best to put on my oak bays, and she said the only thing she would put on it would be handcream!!!! Now...I'munsure of this, she said it keeps it soft and clean...anyoneelse heard this??
