I bought a nice set of couched and end tables from ChrisMonsod.

Well on one of the couches, the arm rest part is harder than the rest of them. He told me why but I forgot. The couchs are in very good condition, but is there anything I can put on there to soften it up like the rest of the couch?

Also, whats that one stuff thats advertised on TV that patches up small tears in leather? There are 2 small tears on the love seat cushion where that stuff on TV would work.

Any insight is helpful.

Thanks.

I did that but it didn't do much to it. I'll have to try the saddle soap and see how that works.

The leather repair kits you see on TV suck ass and will not work. Best bet is to find someplace that does actual leather/vinyl repairs. These repairs use a heat reactive compound.

Thanks for the info. I've never heard feedback about them, but I should have figured. Most of the other shit they sell on there is BS anyways.

I use neatsfoot oil on my USGI M1916 holsters and all leather slings I own. It does smell weird, though.

That's one of the two ingredients in saddle soap.... ;) The other is just some mild soap for cleaning purposes.
