Caring for Rolled Leather Tugs…


The economy being what it is and all, anyone have advice on extending the life and proper cleaning of rolled leather tugs, like the Gappay? Mine have become so saturated with dog saliva that they are hard as a stick until they get “worked in” each session. If I try to flex them to loosen up before tugging they are starting to crack. If there is nothing that can be done, no problem – I just figured I’d try to save them or at least care for the next batch a little better.

Thanks for any advice,

-Calvin

Re: Caring for Rolled Leather Tugs…

actually, I know that people used to occassionally wash suede/rough out leather chaps in a washing machine!!! They get really crusty sometimes with horse sweat!!!! So, find a saddle or tack shop (horse supply store) - look for stuff called Lexol - you can put that in the water when you wash them - ask at the saddle shop about washing suede - they may know more particulars as to how to do it as far as water temp etc. It is worth a try if they are pretty disgusting anyway! I like french linen tugs as you can throw them in the washer when they get dirty.

There is a product called black spot that is a horse leather cleaner.

Leather is much better for all grip work.
