Leder-Gris® Original is a mixture of 70% wax and 30% oil. It has been developed for everyday use in average UK conditions. The wax provides waterproofing, as it dries – it remains on or just below the surface.
The oil goes deeper into the leather, and helps to maintain the leather’s suppleness by replacing leather oils lost during the drying out process. If leather oils are not replaced, then boots will be more likely to show signs of flex cracking earlier.
Medium oil content: restorative levels of leather oils are average High wax content: waxes are a mixture of synthetic bees waxes – content is above average Regular use: Leder-Gris® Original can be used regularly – it will not over-soften , or damage leather if used excessively.
If leather shows signs of hardening, or flex cracking, use a single treatment of Leder-Gris Xtreme – which is an occasional use restorative treatment.
Not tested on animals. Flammable Keep out of reach of children – if swallowed, seek medical advice Avoid contact with eyes and mouth.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE OF LEDER-GRIS®
Brush in Leder-Gris® when the boots are almost dry
Use the brush to work, and drive the wax oil into the leather
Always treat with Leder-Gris® before storage
If leather shows signs of hardening, or after use in extreme wet conditions, use Leder-Gris® Xtreme as a ‘one-off’ treatment
Alt-Berg only recommends Leder-Gris – we DO NOT recommend dubbins, saddle soap, or any kiwi type polishes All leather will eventually show signs of cracking where the boot flexes.
Treatment with Leder-Gris® will slow down the rate at which this cracking will occur. Drying boots too quickly will harden the leather and accelerate flex cracking - rapiddrying may also shrink the boot and alter the fitting. Always let boots dry naturally in a cool place.
DRYING LEATHER WHEN WET
Never dry quickly
Never dry near heat
Never dry, or leave in sunlight
Never force dry in any way
Drying boots too quickly can shrink them - if you're in a very hot climate, cover the boots with a damp cloth to slow down the rate of moisture evaporation Use Leder-Gris® Original (green label) regularly Use Leder-Gris® Xtreme (red label) occasionally.
