Thanks so much to the poster that said use an oven.

Use saddle soap to clean your leather shoes and mink oil to protect and condition the leather.
Phillip B. Panczuk
So much cheaper than the Brooks own brand alternative and does exactly the same thing.

Thanks so much to the poster that said use an oven. I even tried a hair drier which didn't work. I've been using this stuff since I was a kid and never knew how to apply. I did make a couple modifications on the posters instructions and it worked well. This is how I applied the mink oil:

1. I tucked the extra part of the laces into the top of the boot.

2. Rub the mink oil in by hand, use a good amount and rub it well into seams especially.

3. I removed the top over rack and moved the bottom rack to the lowest spot. put aluminum foil on the bottom rack.

4. I heated the oven to 160 degrees F. Once it was heated, I turned the oven OFF and put the boots in. I left the boots in about 18 minutes minutes with the oven off and the door SHUT.

5. After my timer went off after about 18 minutes, I took the boots out and let them cool. Once cool, the leather surface was completely dry and not oily at all. And the boots hardly had any smell either. All the mink oil was absorbed in the leather. Even the aluminum foil wasn't oily, it was all in the boots. And the leather was dry with no visible mink oil. And I used a lot of mink oil, I treated five pairs of boots (including two kids pairs) using the entire the can so I was using a lot and rubbing it in.

Notice I never had the boots in the oven with the oven turned on.

I've always used this brand and I've never seen a white residue on a shoe. Mavens use a hair dryer on the shoe after application so the oil melts into the leather better. Give it a try.

Step one: CLEAN the boot. This is the most important step in my opinion because without a clean boot the oils will not penetrate. I first remove the laces then brush the boot with an old horsehair brush which will typically clean the boot unless heavily soiled, and in that case just use a small amount of water on a piece of old cut up t-shirt to clean it.

Step two: Using your index and middle finger, scoop out a healthy sized glob of the mink oil and apply it to the boot, leaving little daubs all over the boot.

Step three: Take another piece of clean, cut up t-shirt, and wrap it around your index and middle finger. Start working the daubs into the leather paying special attention to the seams. You still want to be able to see the yellowish paste in the seams when youre done, but should be rather colorless and hazy on the rest of the boot. Remember, you're going for a rather thick coat your first go around.

Step four: Once a liberal coat of mink oil has been applied, place boots on a baking sheet or something similar in a 160 - 170 degree oven, with the oven rack only as far down as needed to accommodate boot height. Bake for 15 - 25 minutes (depends on how much oil you used). WATCH the boots and once they have become glossy and smooth in appearance take them out.

Step five: After removing boots from the oven take the same rag you used to apply the first coat and start buffing using small circular motions. You should start to see only a small amount of haze after youre done.

Step six: Using only a horsehair brush, apply the final polish using light but quick strokes until you see no more haze. Remember you're not going for a mirror polish here, only a "just bought" look.

This is a report rather than a product review.

This item, Kiwi Outdoor Mink Oil (from kiwicare.com), "contains a rich blend of mink oil, silicone, and lanolin which conditions and waterproofs smooth leather."

Got that? It's a blend of mink oil, silicone, and lanolin.

Directions (from kiwicare.com): "Work a thin coat of KIWI Mink Oil into leather and seams with a cloth of polish applicator. Wipe off excess immediately, and allow to dry for several hours."

OK, now lets compare to (Sara Lee) Kiwi Camp Dry Mink Oil, also sold by amazon.com, which comes in a 6-ounce yellow plastic tub. Here is the description (from kiwicare.com): "Camp Dry Mink Oil contains a multi-refined oil of mink that penetrates deeply into leather, restoring natural oils while conditioning and waterproofing."

If the Camp Dry Mink Oil has anything other than mink oil in it, they aren't telling. Note the BIG difference in application directions: "...apply with a soft cloth, working well into leather, particularly around the seams and stitching. Wipe off excess and allow the article to stand overnight before wearing."

Summary:

Outdoor Mink Oil Polish is a blend of 3 major protection ingredients, and you can wear the boots after allowing a few hours to dry.

Camp Dry Mink Oil is (ostensibly) only mink oil, and you should let the boots stand overnight before wearing them.

But wait, there's more! Kiwi has a Boot Protector aerosol product (also sold by Amazon) which is described as straight silicone. The application directions are much different than either of the two "Mink Oil" products: "Spray entire surface from 7-10" away with a light, even coat.
