Yep that's it. 

I just asked her 89p in Poundstretchers. 

:biggrin:

 

I tell you, it is incredible stuff. It cleans clothes, specs, motorcycle engines, floors, it got paint off my hands, wonder what's in it. :hmmm9uh:

Something else. Want to get that brake pad dust off your alloys ?

Always try it on someone else's wheels first. Shifts dead insects off the bonnet and screen too, and my helmet visor.

That's exactly my problem. The thick padding just doesn't want to give.

We seem to have strayed onto the "pimp my ride" forum.

I don't think any amount of cream or other products is going to help much. I'm hoping if I just keep flexing it from time to time it'll start to give a bit. In the meantime, it's relegated to the spares box.

Lol, indeed. Appreciate you bringing the thread back on topic.

 

I guess it's the padding rather than the leather that's causing the issue. I'll continue flexing on both straps as aside from their unwillingness to conform to my wrist shape they're both rather nice.

 

On one, however, even the unpadded end is quite stiff, so maybe a leather nourishing/softening product might help, even if only marginally.

I fasten them quite tight round one of these, but put a cloth around it - the edges can be quite sharp:

Sorry JJ, I missed your comment until having a read back just now.

What are those?

No photo description available.

watch display stands - but be careful, if you allow the watch head to come too far forward as can happened with a new 'stiff' watch strap or it can tip forward - strap it on nice and tight!

WHile we're on the subject of leather watch straps, has anyone here found their new strap to be squeaky?

My new alligator strap appears to be squeaking when it rubs against the lugs. A first for me, lol.
