Re: xymol, lexol, detail questions

I have heard, though I don't know if it is true, that Lexol will start to
break down the stitches on the seats. Very easy to use though and works
nicely on the leather.

I usually don a set of rubber gloves and grab a jar of Conneley hide food.
Much more difficult to apply & remove, much thicker than Lexol though.

Vinylex works very nicely too.
