I've been cleaning up the tack and saddles the last couple of days in preporation of helping a friend round up his free range cattle. After starting on this long long long overdue process I've come across tack that hasn't been touched in years, ie. super stiff, dry, almost mumified leather. So far I've been using saddle soap and Neatsfoot oil with good results, just very very time consuming. Anyone have any secret shortcuts, I've thought of a bucket of oil and just submerging tack in it, not sure if that would work or not. What do you use on your leather projects?
