Leather New Liquid Glycerine Saddle Soap
Excellent Saddle Soap
I love this saddle soap! I try to use it every time I ride to keep my saddle and bridles clean and like new. It does a great job, especially if you follow the instructions and get the sponge a little wet (nice and foamy!). It hasn't darkened any of my leather, but I would suggest trying it on a small portion first just in case. I would recommend this product to anyone and everyone looking for a reasonably-priced but very good saddle soap!

Great leather cleaner
This stuff works really well! Cleans leather and makes it soft and shiny. Just one thing: don't spray it directly onto leather! It says you should on the bottle, but if you do, it gives your leather bad spots and stains. They go away eventually, but it's a pain. Great otherwise!

Great everyday soap
This is an amazing soap for every day use! Keeps the saddle clean and slightly tacky.

I've used many different liquids, bars, and gooey leather cleaners but they all seem do to an "okay" job leaving me a bit messy.
The cleaner works great, leaving no yucky residue on saddles, bridles, latigos, and more. The spray bottle is extremely convenient, and there's no mess!

Simplifies Cleaning Tack
I have used this now for years, on new/old tack, my boots, etc. It makes it a lot easier when cleaning. I brush or wipe off dirt, spray this stuff on (make sure to test first), and wipe it around/off. I don't think it makes it too sticky or too slippery, it's just right for me.
Make sure to follow the directions it gives you. I always use a microfiber towel because they leave no fuzzies behind. If I want to really deep condition, then I follow up with Leather New Balsam, but it looks like no one carries that anymore (even though it's on farnam's website).

Good for every day but can be sticky
I have used this saddle soap for years, mainly because it was what everyone else was using and they spray bottle makes it convenient. I've found that it can get sticky pretty easily and the leather stays that way unless you wipe it down again. The first few times this happened I thought it just needed to dry, but that wasn't the case and the leather actually attracted more dirt/dust and got really gross as a result. I use this on clean leather that just needs the sweat wiped off. If I have something really dirty or dusty, it gets cleaned up first. I don't think this stuff does much conditioning, so I always use a separate conditioner afterwards. I will continue to buy it for my work tack but show tack will get better treatment.
