Has anyone ever tried this product or know what the pros and cons
might be? I would be using this on leather bindings that are
deteriorating, items where my only other option is boxing.  It is
available from Gaylord, and the description makes it sound great:
"Will not darken, discolor, or leave film on the surface of leather.
Developed and used by professional conservators to treat
deteriorating, powdery leather (red rot)..."  Is this something I
should avoid, like other leather treatments we've tried in the past?
