HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

I experimented with my Held Phantom Gloves and Sidi boots using that leather wash/rinse. They came out cleaner. The gloves had a little rash on the kangaroo leather on the palm and fingers so the washing process weakened a spot and it tore. I have to take my suit to a laundromat with an oversized washer to try it out and I suspect it will work fine since its all cow leather.
