I just used this on my Medium Bifold wallet, and couldn't be happier with the results. Daily grime and sweat was starting to make my six month old wallet appear less than appealing.
It had developed a real nice patina, but was starting to not look nice at all. After a deep cleaning and conditioning, my wallet looks, feels, and smells great again. I've used lots of leather treatment products. Absolutely nothing comes close to what this all natural product does. If you've invested in anything from Sadelback leather or any other fine leather maker... You need this stuff. It really works like magic.

To condition my first bag, I got out some sandpaper, baby oil and some lime juice and got busy on the first Saddleback Leather briefcase. The design was what I had asked for, but the leather looked kind of stiff and painted. I wasn’t happy with it right away and so I took it upon myself to make it perfect.
So, I asked the Leonel, the guy who made the bag, how I could get it to be more relaxed and look more aged. He told me that I could rub a light oil into it like baby oil or olive oil and then rub in some lime juice too and that would condition it real nicely.
Well, I couldn’t wait for the perfect leather to age and so I went out and bought some fine sandpaper and rubbed it everywhere except for the stitching. And then my friend, Jake, and I pulled and twisted it and wrung it out like a wet towel. And then I sanded it some more and lubed it up with the oils and squeezed a complete lime tree worth of juice on it. Upon gazing on the finished bag, I ran naked through the streets yelling “Eureka” at the top of my lungs.
Later, I found leathers that already looked good without sanding and I’m still using them today. I don’t recommend sandpaper or juice or oils on the bag. I recommend Chamberlain’s Leather Milk.
