-----LEATHER BOOK BINDINGS-----
Neat's foot oil
Leather book bindings: Warm lanolin, when liquefied, add neat's foot oil. Apply to binding with a gauze pad. Be very careful not to touch any other part of the book. Stand the book up, fanned out, to dry.
The best way to dust books is with the brush attachment on a vacuum. The second best way is to use a large clean paint brush kept especially for that purpose.
