White’s Boot Leather Preservative (Dressing)
White’s Boot Leather Preservative (Dressing) is 100% natural and the most durable protection available. Originally developed for the severe conditions endured by wild-land firefighters. This leather preservative protects, preserves, and restores boots, saddles, motorcycle leathers, tool pouches, baseball gloves, and more. It provides industrial strength protection for leather that gets exposed to harsh environments.
From Fire Hybrid Boots to the Original Smoke Jumper, protecting your new White’s investment with proper care will quickly extend the life of your boots.
Three natural oils are suspended in Beeswax and Propolis. These oils gradually seep out of the Beeswax/Propolis* Suspension Formula in the leather. If exposed to heat or flexing, the oils are released faster, so leather gets oiled when and where it needs it most instead of parched and cracked. This Beeswax/Propolis* Suspension Formula provides time-release lubrication to inner fibers, and reinforces the surface against scuffing and abrasions while still allowing the leather to breathe.
*Propolis is an antibacterial resin from trees that resists bacteria and mold. It is a barrier against body acids, salt, and caustic chemicals. Combined with beeswax, it will repel water better and longer.

LEATHER DRESSING APPLICATION:
Apply the dressing in light coats using a clean, soft cloth or your fingers. Allow 12 to 24 hours for the dressing to be absorbed into the leather. Apply additional treatments in the same manner until a thin layer of dressing remains on the surface. Each treatment allows fibers in the leather to become stronger, softer, and more flexible.
Remove any excess dressing with a dry, soft cloth and gently buff the surface to a soft sheen. Buffing leather melts the blend of waxes, so they will repel water and dust. Perform follow-up treatments two to four times per year or as needed to maintain proper protection of the leather
