[RC] NO NEATSFOOT OIL - pls read - Sheila_Larsen

Ok, now I have your attention, I think you said it was a rough out leather.
Not sure what you may mean but you may not want to put neatsfoot oil on
roughout leather, just like you would not put oil on suede.  Also, you can
add too much neatoil.  I ordered a hand made bridle and some person decided
that they had to soak it in neatsfoot.  I ended up throwing a brand new
bridle away because nothing I could do could get the oil out.  It was so
oily I couldn't grip the reins or get the oil out of the bridle so it
wouldn't keep getting oil on the horse and everything else.  I tried
covering with corn meal, paper, cloth, towels, it was awful I even just
tried using it to get the oil out but it was hopeless.  So you can put
neatsfoot oil on it if it is appropriatefor your type of leather  but
beware of soaking it .
