"Sterling Essentials makes a fantastic natural leather cleaner and conditioner. I found it to be very effective as a cleaner and the conditioner really transformed the bridle I treated. Nice fragrance too!"

"When I opened one box I was greeted with the most wonderful sweet scent of lavender. If ever the positive power of aroma therapy needed some scientific proof, opening that box would be it. These are going to be a real hit at our shows..."

“I love the Sterling Essentials leather cleaner. I came home from a recent clinic and used it on my paddock boots. Not only did it leave them soft and clean but there was no need to even polish them. And, the added bonus was how soft my hands felt after using the product! What a great idea to combine essential oils with a leather cleaner!"

"We always want our tack to look and feel its best. From a functional standpoint, clean tack is less likely to stretch or break. In addition, there is nothing like the rich shine of clean tack as you first go into the show ring. I am always trying leather products, I want to see what can strip off the dirt, sand, sweat gunk without leaving streaks or film. I love that the cleaner is liquid base so that you can apply directly to a dry, clean sponge so it easily cleans without over-saturating (the main cause of stretching and leather warping). It doesn't leave a sudsy film and the tack always looks sparkling. The conditioner balm is a great balance between waxy and balmy, it never makes my tack feel wet or sticky, it just adds the perfect amount of pliability to keep the leather from breaking or cracking. In the desert, in the rain, in the cold- I'm seriously a very big fan of the cleaner and conditioner for all of my tack!"

Excellent product - used with the leather conditioner. Chose the citrus scent. Restored antique leather and vinyl to look brand new. Cleaned old residue off seats that had accumulated over several years. Other products had been tried first. Definitely intend to continue using and will buy again. Working on harness that acquires minor mildew in storage.
Excellent product. Would definitely buy again. Used on both leather and vinyl with the cleaner first. Cleaner took off old residue that had sat on cushions for several years and the end result looked brand new. Brought an excellent price at auction due to the looks of the 100+ year old carriage.
