Regarding this, what is the best oil for leather?
Mink Oil – Add Shine & Protect Leather ItemsThe oil easily penetrates most leather items and is easily absorbed. Avoid using mink oil on older leather products. The oil has a tendency to soften the leather. Mink oil is best used on lower quality items.
Furthermore, what should I put on my leather boots? Care For Leather Boots: Part 3 – Polishing/Shining
- Piece of old cloth (to lay the boots over)
- Either a shoe cream polish or wax-based polish (there are differences between the two which you'll want to take note of)
- Small applicator brush.
- Soft clean rag.
- Clean horsehair brush (NOT the one you used for removing dirt)
Also to know is, is motor oil good for leather boots?
I brush old engine oil onto the leather as needed to keep the water out and to keep the leather soft so it won't crack. Brush it on when the leather is dry. This will very much darken the leather and if you really soak it in it can even darken your socks. Also don't let it soak into your wife's rug.
Should you OIL new boots?
When you get your new boots, the temptation will be to oil them. Don't do it! Your foot is the mold and you want the leather to break in around your foot without the aid of oil or grease. Excessive oiling during the break in process can result is a sloppy fitting pair of boots.
