    Default Cleaning Leather Collar

    Any tips on how to clean a leather collar?

    Banjo is wearing my old dog's collar and it's a bit dirty and smelly. Soaked up a few nasty smells over time as my dog loved rolling in rotting dead animals and bird poo.

    I would think that once the smell is in there it would be hard to get it out?! Lol can you soak leather at all?

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    I have been known to put stinky leather things in the washing machine - like my sailing gloves that I use for hockey (dirt and sweat). But if you don't want to do that, there's something called saddle soap and leather conditioner that you can get from some shoe shops or equestrian supplies. Some of the leather conditioners smell like honey and beeswax because that's what they have in them. Mmm...

    So clean up with saddle soap, and finish with dubbin or conditiner.

    I second the saddle soap and I have used Dubbin before after washing in some dog wash and drying in the sun. Leather shoe conditioner works as well if you have some laying around

    Thanks. I'll have to get some saddle soap. And I do have bees wax that I used on my leather shoes.
