The 100% natural preservative for leather articles subjected to rugged use and outdoor exposure. Since the primary function of a neatsfoot oil is to replace the evaporated oils in leather, replacing the oils with other natural animal oils is best. Used by saddle-makers for decades.

Fiebing’s Neatsfoot Oil is a popular leather conditioning and preserving product. Here’s how to use it effectively:

1. **Preparation**: Ensure that the leather you’re treating is clean and free from any dirt or dust. If necessary, clean the leather with Saddle Soap and allow it to dry completely before applying the neatsfoot oil.

2. **Test Patch**: Before applying neatsfoot oil to the entire leather item, it’s wise to test it on a small, inconspicuous area to ensure compatibility and to see how the leather reacts to it. This step helps prevent any unexpected results on the entire surface.

3. **Application**: Apply a small amount of neatsfoot oil onto a clean, soft cloth or sponge. Rub the oil onto the leather surface using gentle, circular motions, ensuring even coverage. Pay special attention to any areas of the leather that are particularly dry or stiff.

4. **Allow Absorption**: After applying the neatsfoot oil, allow it to penetrate the leather for some time. The time needed for absorption may vary depending on factors such as the thickness of the leather and its current condition. Typically, you should let it sit for several hours to overnight.

5. **Buffing (optional)**: Once the neatsfoot oil has been absorbed, you can buff the leather with a clean, dry cloth to remove any excess oil and enhance the shine. Buffing helps to distribute the oil evenly and gives the leather a polished finish.

6. **Repeat as Needed**: Depending on the condition of the leather and how thirsty it is, you may need to reapply neatsfoot oil periodically to maintain its softness, flexibility, and protection. It’s best to apply multiple thin coats rather than one thick coat.

7. **Finish**: After treating the leather with neatsfoot oil, you may choose to follow up with Fiebing’s Mink Oil Paste to further enhance its appearance and provide additional protection.
