New Bottle - Same Great Protectant

by

I have been using Chamberlains Water Protectant No.3 for some time now. I live on the West(wet) Coast and rely on good protectants for my leather products because of our rainy climate. No.3 is very rich, applies easily and offers superior protection. The heavier formulation, which I only use once or twice a year, complements the No. 1 formulation for more frequent applications. I like the new bottles. The larger size is appreciated and reduces the amount of times I have to go to the Shopping Cart...shipping to Canada is expensive. The new plastic plug with the hole in the center is much better than the old cardboard/plastic plugs of the smaller bottles. This makes application of the No. 3 much easier. The bottles also ship with a nice foam/cotton applicator. When applying the cream I take a brush to the leather surface after and spread around any cream build up in the threads and seams.



Overall I remain very happy with Chamberlains Water Protectant No.3.

Story

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.
