I warmed my new boots and metal can of (odorless) mink oil wax on top of a home radiator. I used a new stiff paintbrush to apply a generous amount of cream/paste into the fresh leather, seams and stitching. The warm boot leather soaked it right in. No need to wipe off extra with rag. It quickly dried... almost clear. I then used a shoe brush and lightly buffed the leather. Applied a second coat to the toe! The wax darkened the leather and made it much more relaxed and soft, the boots feel more comfortable to wear and dry dirt brushes right off. Easy to keep boots clean.

Tools needed: one cut up t-shirt, old bandannas or something similar (not washclothes as they tend to leave lint everywhere), mink oil, stove, and an old horsehair brush for cleaning and one newer horsehair brush for buffing.

Step one: CLEAN YOUR BOOTS! This is one of the most important processess here as a dirty boot will not absorb the oils. Take your old horsehair brush and brush away the dirt and grime gently (for really tough spots use a little water on your finger).

Step two: Using your fingers, apply a GENEROUS amount of oil to the boot, paying special attention to the seams. You're going after a white, waxy look all over the leather. My 11" ropers usually use up to 1/3 of a can for the first application to both boots.

Step three: Heat oven to around 180° - 190°, and place boots in oven. WATCH the boots periodically. After you see no more white paste and they have a glossy sheen to them, it's time to take them out.

Step four: Take a rag and apply some of the still cool mink oil straight from the tin to it, trying to saturate the rag in the oil (this will forever be your application rag and stores nicely in the tin), then take that rag and rub it over your warmed boots until you again see a waxy appearance on the leather.

Step five: Repeat steps three and four. I find that two or three cycles of this suffices for most leather.

Step six: After you have repeated steps three and four a few times, take your newer horsehair brush (this will forever be your buffing brush as the oils will get deep inside the brush) and start buffing using light strokes. Once the glossy sheen has dissapeared you should notice your boots look brand new, rich and supple.

Step seven: If possible, wear your boots for a few hours.

This Mink oil came with big chunks of wax it it. It makes it fairly irritating and hard to apply. I have uploaded a picture of what it looks like. Check it out in the customer images section. Also, this came in a plastic tub, not the metal can that some of the other people here have received.

Mink oil is essential for the care and upkeep of leather shoes and garments. This is my second purchase of this product. I applied the mink oil to a decades-old leather jacket. After two treatments the jacket looks almost as good as new. I suppose it is also "waterproof" now, but I don't plan to wear it in the rain. It looks too good! I would recommend this product to anyone.

It left white residue on leather which was difficult to remove. This occurred on 2 pair of boots. Not like any mink oil product I have ever used before. There were round pearl-sized beads of wax or other debris in the can. Threw it in the trash. Very disappointed.

Love this product. I oiled all my boots to protect the leather from salt in the winter. You need to buff it sometime after applying to remove the white coating. After this paste is applies, the leather looks matte.

Works well, soaks in cleanly and doesn't gunk up when all is said and done.

Darkened the brown leather as expected.

Mink Oil came in a plastic tub. The oil is smooth, unscented, white. I tried several different ways applying it and found the thin fiber cloth was the easiest to work with and produces the quickest results.

In attached video you see me applying Mink Oil to one boot, I waited to apply the oil to the second one in order to show how the oil changed the boot color and leather. You see images during, immediately after the application, and 12 hours later. The color of the leather is slightly darker, some mild scuffing marks are gone, the leather feels softer. I sprinkled some water on treated and untreated boot. The water was absorbed by the untreated leather but continued to sit as a bead on the treated boot.

The application took about 10 minutes per boot. My fiber cloth picked up some dirt so the oil application not only waterproofed but cleaned the leather. I took the video a little over a week ago and waited to post this review so I have more chances to wear the boots in the rain and see the color changes. They continue to behave well in wet weather. The color never returned to the original and remained the darker shade you see in the video.

This mink oil is provided by Jobsite.
