A LEATHER CONDITIONER FOR ALL KINDS OF LEATHER
Leather Care Liniment uses a light emulsion of oils and water to gently condition leather. Of all of Leather Milk’s recipes, this is the ideal conditioner for leather of more natural qualities, lighter hues, and unfinished leather, due to its gentle yet highly enriching effects. In fact, Liniment’s versatility is immediately disarming, adapting with ease to beautify and enrich nearly any kind of leather, from full grain and vegetable-tanned to exotic crocodile and deerskin. This recipe is a true Jack-of-All-Trades. If you’ve got leather, Liniment’s got you covered.
ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY, ALL-NATURAL, SAFE FOR HUMAN SKIN!
Brewed to perfection with all-natural ingredients and an optimal pH-balanced recipe, this environmentally friendly leather conditioner stands out from the crowd for its distinctive style: a rich, creamy consistency laced with scents of cherry and almond. The texture, designed for easy application and maximum absorption, will melt into your leather as easily as butter on hot bread. This conditioning experience is made even more pleasurable with a tease of sweet fragrance – a subtle sensation lasting only as long as long as the conditioner takes to absorb, so that it will not affect your leather’s natural scents. Made with FDA approved, cosmetic grade ingredients safe for human skin, we’ve even watched people drink our Leather Milk recipe straight out of the bottle like actual milk! We wouldn’t personally advise doing this, of course!
STRONGER, RICHER LEATHER; MADE IN USA
Like all of Chamberlain’s leather conditioners, Recipe No.1 should enrich your leather’s color and give it the soft, supple texture that it deserves. As this recipe absorbs and conditions, it will strengthen the fibers of your leather, making it grow stronger, and live longer. A light cleaning element permits Leather Care Liniment to give your leather a gentle surface cleansing, and its protective properties allow it to moderately repel routine contaminants, like dust and dirt.
If you have already used Leather Care Liniment, you will not need to apply any other leather conditioners to your leather, at least until it is ready to be conditioned again. All Leather Milk products are made in USA.

I recommend this product for it helped my leather feel soft, "alive," and clean. In addition, their customer service is excellent for answering my question thoroughly and checking back on my purchase to see if the product worked for me. The rest of the review will go more in detail but if you wish a short review, the first two sentences are all you need and I would highly recommend the product on Saddleback Leather products and other leather if it works. If you care to know the personal experience in details, you may read on. It has been six months since I got my Saddleback Leather Satchel and seen from their website that this could use leather conditioner every six months using Chamberlain's Leather Milk. This is my first time buying any genuine leather product that I care to maintain and have very little knowledge of leather maintenance. I bought one Leather Milk and the shipping was very prompt and fast. However, I never got to use it right away. What surprised me was I received an email through Amazon from the seller of Chamberlain's Milk asking me if the product was doing well. I asked question regarding if I should apply to all parts of the leather or only certain parts of bag. The seller replied back in full details of all the different leather types on my particular bag and how the product can be used on all surfaces. I found the customer support very proactive, helpful, and personally oriented to help me. When I did finally begin to use the product, my first application resulted not well due to my inexperience. When I applied the second time, it was the result I was looking for. The leather became very soft, the texture of the bag became smooth, and made my bag no longer look ashy/faded. The smell of the product is very good (to me at least) and after couple of days can no longer be smelled on the bag. The value of the product for what it does is great. I think it is worth every penny. To sum up, the customer service is excellent (thanks Jonathan), the product is excellent, and the shipping was excellent. I recommend this seller, and product to those who needs leather conditioner.
I am a self-confessed Saddleback addict. I can't help but check their website regularly in hopes that Dave will come up with a new creation I just can't live without. I can now add another item to my list of favorite products. I bought the Leather Milk initally to treat a pair of Ariat boots that had gotten a bit weathered. After restoring the boots to like-new condition, I then began treating other leather products in and around the house with the same great results. Then it was time to hit the vehicles. I treat the front and back seats of my GMC pickup to not only clean and condition but also to protect the seats from my 2 daughters (5 and 9). The tan leather spruiced up so well I then tacked the black seats of my wife's car to the same results. We then traded the car for a Buick Enclave and I could not resist putting a nice protective coating on the new seats. In my house, if it's leather, it has a nice dose of Leather Milk. I love this product and can not recommend it highly enough.
I love this product! I used on a saddleback leather bag I have and it did a great job. The bag was a little darker, to be sure, but all the little scratches were tamed and it has regained a certain youthfulness, if you know what I mean. I also did a leather chair and the results were equally impressive - the nasty shine they are given in the show-room disappeared and the leather was softened and given some character! So, all in all, a resounding succes...oh and it smells good too, kinda almond-y.
For my birthday, my wife bought me a Saddleback wallet in the lightest possible color, and I absolutely loved it. It had tremendous character, and it aged beautifully over the first few months of its life in my pocket. Hands down, it was the best wallet I had ever owned. Then we went to an amusement park. And we went on an inner tube ride. And we all got soaked. Twice. I didn't realize the mistake I'd made until we went to attempt to dry out and I pulled my wallet from my pocket. It was soaked through. The leather had absorbed a lot of water and was now very dark in color. I panicked. But I remembered reading on the Saddleback web site that Dave Munson had had a similar experience and had simply let his piece dry, then treated it with some of this Chamberlain's Leather Milk and voila, it was good as new. I ordered some as soon as I got home from the park. It arrived a few days later and I waited until the weekend to use it, because I just couldn't live without my wallet and I wasn't sure how long the treatment would take. I had let the wallet dry for a full day before putting it back into use, and it had mostly recovered but I wanted to ensure its long life. It really is that amazing. So I opened the bottle, took out the provided applicator pad, and rubbed a bit of the conditioner on the back side of the wallet, which soaked it right up. I rubbed in a little more until it appeared that the wallet had a good, consistent coating, then did the same on the other side. The inside came next. I stood the wallet up on its end (after treating the end-grain as well) leaving it open in a v-shape to let the Leather Milk soak in and dry. By the time I came back from doing yard work a few hours later, it was mostly done, but I gave it a few more hours to be safe. I buffed the wallet with a soft cloth and it's as good as new, if a bit darker and a bit smoother than before (the untreated wallet had a soft, almost sueded quality that it no longer has, but that's a pretty minor quibble and I suspect it would have lost that over time regardless). If you're expecting some nasty-smelling liniment, you're in for a treat. I can't be sure whether it's vanilla or almond, but this stuff smells incredibly nice, and the resulting post-treatment leather, instead of smelling of vanilla (or almond) just smells nice and leathery again. Only time will tell whether this product actually extends the life of my wallet, but I know I'll be re-treating it every 6 months or so just to be safe. For leather that you want to keep around for a good long time, this is pretty inexpensive insurance.
I have a Saddleback leather briefcase, a wallet, and an iPad cover. (I also have the luggage tags, but that is for a different review) Everything was getting a bit scratched up and looking a bit tired. I used this stuff (the #1, they apparently have three of them. Who knew?) It totally refreshed everything and it looks like new. It was amazing what it did. However, that being said, I used it on my wallet (Saddleback tobacco brown) and it is no longer tobacco brown; and no longer suedeish. Its still a nice looking color, the new color it changed into that is, but it is not what I ordered. Life isn't perfect, get over it. It worked wonders on everything else though. I can honestly say that all the leather products I have used it on look like they have had years put back into them, and the leather just looks a lot healthier. Its good stuff.
What I really like about this product is that it has all natural ingredients and I know that as I'm using this leather conditioner it is safe for me to use. I'm not worrying that if it touches my skin or as I touch the leather it's toxic for me. It also works great. I had some paint on my leather and I used the leather milk and it softened the leather just enough for me to be able to scrape the paint off. I would recommend the product to anyone.
Recently I was looking for a leather conditioner that I could use on my boots, and I happened to come across Chamberlain's leather milk. The old fashioned look lured me in so I decided to give it a try. Once I received it I gave it a try on my dirty old boots and they turned out Amazing! The conditioner gave them a look that I hadn't found with previous leather treatments. It gave it a rustic but polished look which I prefer. My wife liked them so much she handed me her boots! A little more work than I was looking for but I am excited to try the other products in the Chamberlain Leather Milk line!
I love the product. We have a very light-colored leather couch. With my boyfriend's feet on the couch and what the dog tracks in, this cleaning product is a Godsend. I will be a repeat customer.
Excellent product. Worked well for the leather products I needed it for. Used this on a vintage Dooney and Burke handbag, and vintage leather jackets.
I had a black leather jacket that was about the "loudest" jacket I'd ever had. It would squeak and swish every time I wore it which meant I wore it less and less. I finally decided to see if I could try something to make it better and settled on Chamberlain's after researching different products. What a difference! My jacket went from very stiff to pliable after applying Chamberlain's as directed. I also applied Chamberlain's #3 Waterproofer at the same time. It's like I have a brand new jacket. I am very happy with this product.
Let me start by saying my grandfather was a shoemaker from the old country - which has led to me being a 3rd generation obsessive of leather, especially boots, bags, and shoes. I've been taking good care of all things leather since I was a teenager so I'm very picky and like to rely on the tried and true..... I've used saddle soap and mink oil for years on all kinds of boots, shoes and bags so when I bought a vintage coach purse that needed some help, I knew I was going to start with Saddle soap. Of course saddle soap works great but the leather was still very dull in color and somewhat dried out looking. While I usually follow up with mink oil on this type of smooth leather I decided to try the "leather milk" here. It really does have a lovely almond smell and it's liquid- so very easy to work with- leather will soak it up immediately. What's amazing is how quickly it brings out the natural color of the leather and leaves it looking bright and supple again- I was really amazed. I could have left the bag alone at this point, but I still wanted to recondition the leather with the heft of mink oil. After letting the bag dry for a day it was still soft and beautiful looking. The mink oil went on without issue and overall I feel like this bag looks like it's been professionally reconditioned. I also tried this on some Ugg boots I wear a lot in the winter. They are black nubuck so technically I don't think this is the right product to use overall for nubuck- however these are well worn black boots and I didn't mind them getting a little darker. The liniment went on easily and the boots soaked up all the good stuff easily. The nubuck looks brand new again. I have a new laptop bag of very fine smooth leather which will eventually need conditioning. While it might darken the leather, I'm sure this product will keep it beautiful for a lifetime. I'm so happy with this stuff I'm going to check out their other products- like water proofing treatment. It looks like they started as a saddle bag company and developed their own treatment with good ingredients that are healthy for humans and the environment. I have to appreciate the humor of the last note on the instructions on the back of the bottle- " to help stimulate our ailing economy, buy and use more than you need". You can't use too much of this, your leather will love it, and I'd be happy to buy more from this independent company.
My name is Michael Paratore and I semi-recently quit my job as a corporate lawyer to start a hand-made leather shoe company called mohinders (www.mohinders.com). Our first shoe, which we call the City Slipper, is made of vegetable tanned leather that is pretty stiff, dry and unwieldy after the tanning process. As a result, we needed to soften up our shoes prior to shipping them to the end customer. We tried several products (Leather Honey, Bick 4, Neatsfoot and others) and none worked like Chamberlain’s Leather Milk No. 1. It softened and conditioned the leather in our shoes perfectly! It also didn’t cause any discoloration to the leather, which was very important to us. And, to top it all off, Leather Milk smells delicious…like almond pastries! I like it so much that we’ve added a step to our finishing process that I call “Finishing Step 2: Hand-massaging with Leather Milk. - Michael Paratore Mohinders, “The Holy Grail of Shoes”
