How often should I use mink oil on my boots?
In this regard, how long should you leave mink oil on boots?
Furthermore, how do you use mink oil on boots? Rub mink oil into the dry leather shoes using a circular motion with a soft, lint-free cloth. Like neatsfoot oil, this oil penetrates the surface of the leather to condition it. Allow the mink oil to dry for about 15 minutes and remove any excess oil with a dry cloth or paper towel.
Subsequently, one may also ask, should you put mink oil on new boots?
Mink oil will darken your boots a good two or three shades, maybe more. The reason for this is that mink oil penetrates the leather deeply and clogs the pores, forming something of a weather resistant layer on the outside.
How often should you condition leather boots?
Wipe down leather with a damp cloth 1-2 times per week depending on use and accumulated dirt and grime. Store leather shoes on cedar trees. Condition leather every 3-6 months, sometimes more depending on the environment and season. Waterproof once a year, if desired, and if your lifestyle/environment calls for it.
