Just a dab will do!
Not only have we used this on leather goods my sons have purchased, but I use this on some leather office chairs we have at home. I have always loved Bickmore products (grew up with them as a girl); I'm so pleased they are still around for the next generation of leather owners.
Only a little is needed for a noticeable cleaning and conditioning!

best leather cleaner I've used
By Phillip B. Panczuk
I received Bick leather care products with a pair of python boots I ordered from Tim's Boots. There's cleaner, leather conditioner, and horrible-smelling but very effective polish, and water repellent. These products have kept those boots, my eel boots, and leather boots clean and well-protected. The products are easy to use. They are a bit pricey, though.

Bick1 Leather Cleaner
I Googled leather conditioners and cleaners then checked out reviews pf several products before using Bickmore products on the leather described below.
I had old bottles of Bick1 and Bick4 that I used to use on boat shoes.
While rummaging around in my basement I found an old heavy duty leather briefcase.
The kind we used to see in old movies handcuffed to a Fed's wrist. It's made from very thick
leather with a thick brown finish and heavy duty brass fittings. It was in fair shape
except for being very dry and the leather straps and corners of the case had some rough scuff marks and places where the finish had worn off. I was careful not to bend it too much because I was afraid it was
going to crack. The leather was very dry and brittle
I first gently wiped off the heavy dirt andbasement crust with a slightly damp cloth (I know wiping leather with a damp cloth is a no no because it pulls natural oils from the leather. In case, most of the oils had already
left the leather) Then cleaned the leather as directed on the Bick1 bottle. I had to work quickly because the Bick1 was sucked into the leather. Later that day I applied Bick4 as instructed. Again it was immediately
absorbed by the leather. I had to apply four applications of Bick4 before it stopped being immediately absorbed by the leather. The next day I buffed it with an old cotton tshirt.
Bick restored the leather. It looks great even the beatup corners. The leather straps where they loop through the brass fittings still have bare leather where the finished wore off from use but overall the
case looks great, even the brass fittings maintained their nice patina.
Ordered fresh containers of BIck1 & Bick4 from Amazon.
Next, I decided to try Bick on an at least forty year old dyed green motorcycle jacket.
The jacket was in very bad shape from a moderate case of road rash on the right side and all along the right sleeve. Other damage included the green finished being pulled away after racing stickers were removed.
The jacket was filthy with asphalt streaks mixed in with the road rash.
I carefully cleaned the jacket being careful around the road rash damage because the leather was very fragile (much thinner then the briefcase leather.) The carefully applied Bick4 as per Dicks directions.
The jacket gratefully took three applications of Bick4 and could've taken more.
The results are phenomenal. The leather is supple and most of the rich deep green color came back. Even the damaged leather looks good all things considered.
I'm very satisified with Bick1 and Bick4.
