Leather bloom

From: Karen Motylewski <nedcc>

Reviewing the paper by Gottlieb (not Gottliev, as in the earlier
message), I realize my tongue ran ahead of my brain again.  It seems
likely that spue or bloom, like foxing, may be a number of distinct
phenomena.  I still think, given the frequency with which fats or oils
are found in leather dressing, that some spue will turn out to be a fat
bloom.  And I'm very confident that temperature and relative humidity
will be found to be primary contributors.
