Repeated wetting and drying, as well as continued use in dry, dusty, and desert areas, robs leather of natural oils. This causes stiffening and cracking. Pecard Classic Leather Dressing is a perfect blend of natural ingredients that keeps leather supple, strong and beautiful. It repels water, snow and dew; prevents hardening and cracking; resists most acids; removes most stains, and allows the leather to "breathe". For shoes, boots, sports equipment, saddles, harness and all leather goods. 6oz container.
