Crown soap-  4oz of soap in a tin container $6.95

We are now offering this period soap for cleaning leather.  This is based off a period recipe for soap liked by harness makers.  This is not like modern saddle soaps but instead is mostly made from cod oil.  This type of soap will clean the leather but not be harsh enough to damage the leather.   Leather items should be cleaned with soap several times a year in order to prevent the build up of dirt and other things that will damage the grain surface.
