I wasn't sure where to put this thread, but I figured Holsters was close enough considering it's relevant to my attire. I wanted to know if Rem Oil can be used on leather? The reason I ask is because most oils are known to make leather soft and stretchy. Is it any better or worse or should I altogether avoid cleaning leather with Rem Oil?

Oh, and it is for a garment (jacket), not a holster. Should I just use the "light application of soap" method instead of using oils?

I found that out after searching for a little while. I knew to stay away from alcohol-based solvents, but wasn't too sure about petroleum-based ones. Thanks for the response though, Brownie. You're a plethora of useful information. :)

Rem Oil

Like Brownie said: NO.

Here is a link from KMAN's site:

http://kdholsters.com/warranty.php

I use a VERY LIGHT amount of Neat's Foot oil on the inside of my rigs when they seem "overly dry". However, now back in FL that is few and far between.

The holster should have been "oiled" by the maker before sealed.
If is gets dirty, just a hint of a good saddle soap and a damp rag. Let it dry naturally. No extra heat or anything.

While the question was not about my holster, I appreciate the information you've given here. It is very helpful indeed.

Check Wilson Leather goods [below]. I have used their leather and suede protector for years and it does a good job of maintaining jackets and coats. They also have a leather lotion that helps restore a jacket if it becomes overly dry and stiff. There are other products from other manufacturers that do the same thjing. Some of them can be found at sporting goods stores, including Bass Pro Shop. I wouldn't use neatsfoot oil on a quality leather jacket.

Wilsons has a store at Dolphin Mall and one at Sawgrass Mills.

Sperm whale oil, has to be applied within eight hours of obtaining it from the whale. That’s the best, check with your Eskimo connections.
