I had left a bucket with my leather straps to hold my touring top down in the rain. They are now hard and I am wondering how to get them back without damaging them. Thank you in advance.
Andrew, you might try saddle soap or mink oil. I think the mink oil might be better. I use it on my work boots with good results. Good luck. Dave
Pour the water out, get some Neatsfoot oil and just let them soak. Work them a bit after a day and soak some more. They shouild be fine. Then, you'll need to let them "drain" for some time. Use an old bath towel and wrap them well.
Soak them in Lexol leather conditioner.
Thank you for your suggestions! I will let you know how it turns out.
