PERDITA IS THE LEATHER DOCTOR ...
And you can ask her your questions on Leather Care here! email: firstname.lastname@example.org
An exciting new use has been discovered for GRAND PRIX LEATHER GLOSS thanks to motor bike rider James York. He emailed Perdita - having visited the web site to see what Grand Prix Leather Gloss is about - to discuss his problem.
He had a beautiful new bespoke Corbin leather saddle on his motorbike...
After some email discussion of the problem, Perdita sent him a sample of Leather Gloss.
It arrived Saturday and I put it on Sunday - I've been out for a 150 mile ride today and it has worked very well.
Perdita was recently asked on a discussion forum how to avoid or minimise bridles stretching over time...
Her first comment was
"If you don't want stretch, don't oil! I was advised a loooonnnnnnggggg time ago, never to oil stirrup leathers for that very reason.. Oil is not necessary for softness and flexibility if you use the right thing that moisturises the leather".
Another member replied
You're right of course Perdita!! Dills has a 7 yr old Elevator which I oiled to start with and it has stretched, luckily not so as it's too big for him. Got one for Gracie several months ago and have only used the right thing on it and no signs of any stretching!
Then finnbob commented
"I agree with Dillibags oiled first Elevator once and it stretched, however second one has only been 'properly treated' and is fine."
If you are wondering what is the right thing? Combined moisturiser, conditioner with byproduct of amazing non sticky long lasting shine - GRAND PRIX LEATHER GLOSS! EXACTLY what it says on the label....
