My shoes part 2

I have been reading my last post about my shoes. L realise that it makes me sound either quite poor or dull. No, I am not impoverished but possibly I am dull. I think my wife would probably agree that we don’t live exciting lives! However, back to what I want to say in this post.

In my last post I talked about black leather shoes. I may have given the impression that not only do I have only 3 pairs of shoes but that Heritage Leathercare can only be used on black leather. Neither of these statements are true. I do have other pairs of shoes including a pair of brown leather ones and Heritage Leathercare is colourless and can be used on any colour.

So, Heritage Leathercare can be used on any colour. We (my wife and myself) were at a show, I think it was in Scarborough, and this man challenged us to do do something about his boots. As it happens they were very faded and scuffed brown leather. He was a fisherman and had worn these boots to walk into the sea and launch his boat for the previous 25 years. Yes, 25 years. He assumed that nothing would restore them and was absolutely astounded at the result of only one application and bought a tub there and then

So. as I say, Heritage Leathercare is colourless and can be used on any colour. You use it in the usual way as described in my last post.You can buy it online, by post or over the phone – details are also on my last post.

 

 

My Shoes

My shoes.I mostly wear either sandals or blue canvas training shoes nowadays but, yes, I do possess a pair of black leather shoes that I wear when I want to look a bit smarter , (which is not very often), mainly weddings, funerals, family get togethers, etc – you know, what are to me  the really important events in life,  Now that I am retired from my full time job I don’t feel the need to impress very often these days..

My shoes. How do I look after them? As I don’t wear them often and generally not outdoors in muddy conditions they don’t get very dirty so a quick wipe over with my heritage impregnated sponge is all that is required. If they did get muddy then I would need to get that off first. I recommend letting it dry and then brushing it off. I do not suggest you wash the mud off as that may damage the finish. However, if you do wash mud off then it is most important that your leather is absolutely, totally dry before you apply polish.
When you need to apply your Heritage, do it in the usual way i.e.wipe your sponge or a clean, dry cloth over the surface of your polish, remove any surplus by wiping across the inside edge of your tub and then apply in circular motions on your leather shoes. You should not need to buff up. That is it. Job done. Quick and easy.

Heritage Leathercare on leather upholstery in cars, boats, etc.

Recently  I have told you a great deal about Heritage Leathercare  -who makes it and where, how to use it on leather furniture, etc.So in this post, having talked about leather furniture in my last post I will continue the theme of seating and take a look at leather upholstery in cars, boats etc. I have sold it for use on leather upholstery in helicopters and vintage coaches and I am sure there are other types of vehicles apart from cars that will benefit from  regular treatment.

I have said many times that, with a few exceptions, Heritage Leathercare is excellent for all real leather interiors  (seats, facia, door trims, etc.),, the exceptions being suede, nubuck and nappa leathers. It may be worth mentioning that Heritage Leathercare is used  regularly by many vintage vehicle enthusiasts who take great pride in a well turned out vehicle. Now, assuming the leather is a dark colour, no prior treatment is necessary apart possibly from a dusting. If the leather is a light colour – (white, cream or a  pale or pastel colour)  you may need to clean it first but only if it is soiled  (I recommend washing with pure soap – soap flakes, Simple Soap, Dreft, etc.) if you do find you have to  wash your leather. I do stress that you need to make absolutely sure that it is completely dry before applying your Heritage Leathercare.

So, having cleaned your leather if necessary,  use your Heritage in the usual way, i.e. take your tub, wipe  the sponge supplied (or a soft, clean and dry cloth if you prefer) across the surface of your polish, then wipe the loaded sponge or cloth across the inside edge of your tub to remove amy surplus and then you are ready. All you do now is wipe, in circular motions applying the polish very sparingly. When you have finished you should not be able to feel the polish – the treated leather should not be greasy. If it is, you have used too much and will need to buff up otherwise you have finished. job done!

Leather furniture?

Regular readers of  this blog will know much about Heritage Leathercare – who makes it and where, how to use it, where to use it etc. I thought I would use this and some subsequent posts  to go over where you can use it. Possibly the most popular use  is on leather furniture. Leather is both elegant and durable and these properties  make leather furniture ideal for use in almost any setting, eminently suitable for families or where there are pets although you do have to ensure that the furniture doesn’t get major scratches. (your Heritage will however cover minor scratches and I will  talk about the problem of major scratches in a future post) t So, your leather furniture.  You may need to dust it before using your Heritage. and don’t worry if the furniture is dirty as your Heritage will clean most colours. For cream, white  and similar pale and light colours, you might need to wash your furniture first. I will tell you more about how to do this in another post.

So having prepared your furniture take your tub of Heritage, wipe across the surface of the polish with the sponge that is supplied or any soft, clean and dry cloth if you prefer. Then remove any surplus by wiping your sponge or cloth across the inside of the tub. All you do now  is wipe in circular motions. using your Heritage Leathercare very sparingly. There should be no need to buff up your leather unless it is  greasy. If it is you have used too much and will need to buff it up using a clean and dry cloth. And that is the job done
We recommend you repeat this about 3 to 4 times per year.although If,, your leather is backing on to a radiator or is in direct sun, you will need to use your Heritage more often to prevent your leather drying out and cracking.
Please note, we do not recommend Heritage Leathercare for use on suede, nubuck or nappa leathers. If in doubt always try your Heritage on a small area where it won’t be seen.
You can buy  your Heritage leathercare online, visit http://www.heritageleathercare.co.uk/buy-leathercare/  You can also order  your Heritage by post. Simply send your order with your payment and delivery address to   DCK Services, The Technocentre, Puma Way, Coventry, CV1  2TT Also we have now introduced a telephone ordering service.

Heritage Leathercare – a Victorian solution to a modern problem

In my recent posts I have given  you a brief outline of Heritage Leathercare. So, just what is Heritage Leathercare and what makes it so special?  How do you use it?   

Heritage Leathercare is made in Dublin by Drigate Products (Mfg)  Ltd  which is a  family owned  company.   Heritage Leathercare , like it’s sister product Heritage Woodcare,  is based on a Victorian craftsman’s recipe containing old fashioned tried and tested ingredients and has been updated, using modern technology, to enable it to cope with 21st century developments. Heritage Leathercarecare is only one example of their approach to only bring the very best products to your attention.

 It is really easy to use  so how then do you use it?  You simply take the sponge that  is usually supplied with your order and wipe it across the surface of your leathercare.You then scrape the loaded sponge across the inside edge of your tub in order to remove any surplus polish,  you are now ready!

Before using your Heritage Leathercare on your leather products make sure they are prepared, perhaps by dusting, etc. if necessary. Youprobably won;t need to clean your leather unless it is heavily soiled e.g. shoes caked in mud. etc. If this is the case, remove the soiling – in the case of mud, allow it to dry and then brush it off being careful not to damage the leather.

Now all you need do is wipe in circular motions. using your Leathercare very sparingly. There should be no need to buff up your leather unless it is  greasy. If it is you have used too much and will need to buff it up using a clean and dry cloth.

Leather Furniture? Learn how to look after it.

Well, I have now told you about Heritage Leathercare – who makes it and where, how to use it. etc. I can now start to tell you where you can use it.However,, before I do that, I think I ought to tell you about the brand “Celtic Leathercare” There are some parts of the world where we are unable to use the brand “Heritage Leathercare” so in those areas the Brand “Celtic” is used. It is the same product but just branded differently so, if you do receive a product labelled “Celtic” don’t worry, you are still receiving the Heritage that you ordered.

Now, I will start to tell you where to use your Heritage. The first product I will mention is your leather furniture. Leather is very hard wearing and is ideal for use in almost any setting which makes it ideal for families or where there are pets although you do have to ensure that the furniture doesn’t get major scratches – your Heritage will however cover minor scratchesI will cover the problem of major scratches later!  So, your leather furniture.  You may need to dust it before using your Heritage. Don’t worry if the furniture is dirty as your Heritage will clean most colours. For white, cream  and similar light colours, you may need to wash your furniture first. I will tell you more about how to do this in another future post.
 
Having prepared your leather take your tub of Heritage, wipe across the surface of the polish with the sponge that is supplied or any soft, clean and dry cloth if you prefer. Then remove any surplus by wiping your sponge or cloth across the inside of the tub. All you do now  is wipe in circular motions. using your Heritage Leathercare very sparingly. There should be no need to buff up your leather unless it is  greasy. If it is you have used too much and will need to buff it up using a clean and dry cloth. And that is the job done

Back to basics, what is Heritage Leathercare?

It has been a while since I last posted so I thought it would help by going back to basics and looking at what Heritage Leathercare is. Made in Dublin by Drigate Products (Mfg)  Ltd  (a  family owned  company based in Dublin),   Heritage Leathercare , like it’s sister product Heritage Woodcare,  is based on a Victorian craftsman’s recipe containing old fashioned tried and tested ingredients that has been updated, using modern technology, to enable it to cope with 21st century developments. Heritage Leathercarecare is only one example of their approach to only bring the very best products to your attention.

So what is Heritage Leathercare? It is a traditional 19th century leather balsam containing original, old fashioned ingredients including beeswax. These are well known in the trade for protecting and revitalising leather and also the stitching. Many craftspeople and professionals will vouch for its tried and tested formula. The results obtained with Heritage Leathercare are instantaneous and long lasting and, whilst newer leather products benefit from a shine and protection unsurpassed by modern polishes not containing our ingredients older, tired leather is left revitalised and more supple! Heritage Leathercare is generally regarded as one of the most economical on the market in this day and age

It is really easy to use. You simply take the sponge that was supplied with your order and wipe it across the surface of your leathercare.You then scrape the loaded sponge across the inside edge of your tub in order to remove any surplus polish. Now you are ready!

Now all you need do is wipe in circular motions. using your Heritage Leathercare very sparingly. There should be no need to buff up your leather unless it is  greasy. If it is you have used too much and will need to buff it up using a clean and dry cloth.

What to do with dirty football boots

Hasn’t it been a lovely day today!  Perfect for the sporty types among us to get out and do something – football or rugby perhaps.

As it happens we are now well into the football and rugby season and for those of us with a commitment to playing (not that this includes me – I am not fit enough to play)  there is the problem of cleaning muddy boots. Heritage Leathercare makes this an easy task!

The first job is to ensure that your boots are dry. Then, using a stiff brush (note, do not use wire or similar brushes, a hard hand carpet brush is ideal) brush off as much of the dried mud as you can. You may also need to use a damp cloth to remove what is left but, as stated, do ensure your boots are absolutely, totally dry before applying polish.

So, having done the necessary preparations, you can now go ahead and use your Heritage.This is done in the usual way i.e. load your sponge or cloth  by wiping it across the surface of your polish then wiping the loaded sponge across the inside edge of your tub to remove any surplus and you are now ready. Apply to your boots in circular motions ensuring your boots are not greasy. If they are you will need to buff up with a soft cloth or possibly a piece of kichen towel, otherwise you don’t need to. Do make sure you polish the whole boot.That is all there is to it.

Do you polish your shoes?

Do you polish your shoes? Do you polish them daily? or, like me, only when I go out! Do you like to see well polished shoes?

Polishing your shoes the traditional way with shoe polish is hard work. You first have to put the polish on your brush. (or cloth) then you have to apply the polish to your shoes and lastly you need to buff up.Oh, and you have to have the correct colour, you can’t polish brown shoes with black polish for instance.

How would you feel if I said there is an easy way to do the job? Heritage Leathercare is very easy to apply. You simply load the sponge which is supplied by wiping it across the surface of your polish and remove the surplus by wiping the loaded sponge across the inside edge of tour tub.All you do now is to polish your shoes in circular motions until you have  polished the whole shoe. The best bit is you do not need to buff up. And the bonus is that Heritage Leathercare is colourless so you can use iy on any colour.

Heritage Leathercare feeds, polishes and protects leather whilst leaving a water resistant finish.
