The majority of instances of damaged leather can be linked to misuse or incorrect care. Users sometimes allow their leathers to become dehydrated and brittle, either from drying wet leather near a heat source or by failing to clean or moisturize it sufficiently. Just as many people actually over-oil the leather. These common mistakes result in a radical change in the fibrous structure of the leather, weakening and distorting its substance. Most of the products made by Duvall Leatherwork are oiled and greased before you receive them. However, these products are available to help keep your leathers looking new for years to come.
Snow-Proof Weatherproofing is great for work or hunting boots, saddles, horse tack and pet products. It helps prevent mildew, dry rot, salt stains and scuff marks. We recommend Snow-Proof Weatherproofing for leather products that take extreme outdoor abuse.
How to use Snow-Proof Weatherproofing:
Give your leather a quick wipe with a damp sponge or cloth and allow it to air dry. Apply the leather dressing sparingly to both the grain and flesh side of the leather. Wipe or brush off any excess Snow-Proof Weatherproofing. You can also apply Snow-Proof Weatherproofing as a finishing topcoat on freshly oiled leather.
