Not much, but it may "dry out".

Get some Leather Balsam, such as Renapur..........works wonders on my bush hat, boots & chairs. :wink:

Cheers.

If I rub it on my seats will it be safe to sit on? I don't want an oily bum :shock:

Almost everything fades in sunlight, leather included, the exceptions are mostly living beings, they go pink, even black people!!!!


Why wouldn't you want an oily bum Ck, sounds good to me! :wink:

You seem like quite a character, bit of a swashbuckler?

After 20 odd years in the construction industry, site based and not bothering with sun cream (for nancy boys :twisted: ), I have "taken too much sun" and have been advised to cover up, hence the hat :cry:

Good choice, I'd take the hat over sunscreen every time.

Get ahead, get a hat eh?

Wear a big hat, it covers a multitude of sins.

That is good to wear a hat - especially a nice, cool bush hat - (although that reminds me of the saying 'I'll make you wear your ass for a hat')

The very big corporation did some research and found that people are not wearing enough hats because they are distracted by everyday items...did anyone notice that new building there?
.....or something like that from Monty Python's The Meaning of Life movie.

(there is a guy called Wycliffe who is learning to play the piano in the 'marching up and down the square' skit in that one, too!!!!!)

The big corporation that said people aren't wearing enough hats should decide how many hats people can wear at the same time?
And as a by the by, the corporation in question probably manufactures hats!

It'll probably stain Playme!
I'd get a waterproof cover for the occasion, or get them to sit in the kids paddling pool, having removed the excess water first!

Why do people do that, there's no bloody need. Some people have no freakin shame. I must admit I find it amusing when I hear of people who, out of character, get so pissed they try and pee in the wardrobe but just sitting getting so pissed they lose control of their bladder is fuckin disgusting.

A mate of my ex's stayed over here once after a night out and he weed the bed, the next morning he couldn't get out of the house quick enough. He never said a word about what he'd done, it was only when I went upstairs and went to make the bed I realised. Dirty bastard! Anyways, 'cos of his ignorance and for leaving me to deal with it I told all his mates and referred to him as 'pampers' from then on. Dirty swine!

One of my mates becomes incontinent once fully inhebriated, it's quite funny really. He'l drink till he passes out, then someone will notice a dark patch on his trousers growing. :D

Despite my previous assurance that leather does not fade in the sun, I've just discovered that one of a pair of sandals is markedly lighter than its mate, after being left for 3 weeks on the rear shelf of my car :(
