Leather does not have to be completely dry before applying Leder-Gris®.  Leder-Gris® may still be applied when leather is a little damp.

If leather is constantly going through a cycle of wet and dry, or if there are signs of ‘leather hardening’, which can lead to ‘flex cracking’ – apply an occasional, ‘one-off’ treatment of Leder-Gris® Xtreme
