Cleaning and Conditioning
Wipe surface debris -- such as dust, hair and dirt -- off the leather with a dry, lint-free cloth. Alternatively, use the upholstery attachment on your vacuum to remove the debris from the Cibola leather.
Fill a container with 1 part distilled white vinegar and 2 parts neat foot oil. Alternatively, substitute neat foot oil with food-grade linseed oil.
Dampen a lint-free cloth in the mixture and gently rub the leather. Begin at the top of the leather and rub in a circular motion while working downward.
Allow the mixture to dry on the Cibola leather for several hours, but preferably overnight. After the allotted time has passed, buff the leather with a clean, lint-free cloth.
Dampen a soft leather cloth -- called a chamois -- with distilled water. Rub the scratches gently with the damp cloth for several passes. Continue with the remaining steps if the scratches are still present.
Add three to four drops of olive oil onto a clean, lint-free cloth. Rub the scratches in a circular motion with the damp cloth. Add more olive oil when the cloth becomes dry, and continue rubbing until you have removed the scratches.
Dampen a lint-free cloth with cool water and wipe the olive oil off the leather. Clean and condition the Cibola leather as previously recommended.
