Leather Nova Cleaners and Conditioners Review

logo-footer

 

I have quite a few leather goods in my home. From furniture, to purses and wallets, jackets and shoes, to even nick-nacks. Caring for leather goods properly isn’t always easy. Every knows someone, or has experienced it themselves…the sticky leather. The greasy leather, the cracked, stiff, dried leather. It can be heart-breaking. Enter Leather Nova and it’s trio of superb products. Never greasy, never sticky, and always on point.

I started with the Leather Nova Spray Cleaner. A pH balanced, no-rinse cleaner made of the highest grade, non-toxic polymers, and free from harsh detergents and chemicals. Made in the USA and even comes with a free microfiber towel to apply. It has a pleasant, leather-ey smell and isn’t harsh on my hands, either. I know this because I have a habit of applying these types of cleaners with my bare hands. It quickly brought up all the little bits of dirt and grime on hubby’s favorite chair, and wiped clean away with a towel. The surface felt smooth, clean and smelled fresh. So far, so good.

Next up is Leather Nova’s Ultimate Leather Protector Conditioner. Also made in the USA for non-toxic, high grade polymers, and like the cleaner, free from harsh detergents and chemicals. It goes on thick (using the included microfiber applicator and, again, my hand) but spreads easily. It was very shiny and had me quite worried, but a careful reading of the directions says to leave it on for an hour and then buff the excess away. After a hour I buff with a soft cloth. Hubby’s chair didn’t look this snazzy when we brought it home from Krause’s! And the smell is almost showroom new. No little cloth fibers left behind from buffing, just a soft, smooth, supple leather chair that even I can now enjoy sitting in. It even lessened the appearance for the two surface scratches in the seat cushion. Two for two!

Last up is the Leather Nova Cleaner & Conditioner. Made to the same standards of the stand alone cleaner and conditioner product, it was, sadly, my least favorite of the the three. I followed the directions to a tee, but felt that the two separate products did a far superior job of both cleaning and conditioning the leather. I could see this being used as a “touch up” or follow-up treatment after using the other two products first to deep clean and condition, but as a stand alone product it felt lacking. It worked well on Hubby’s wallet, and an old purse of mine that had seen better days (it may even work it’s way back into the rotation again!). But where it really shined was an old leather jacket I’d given hubby back when we were dating. He’s used and abused it, even one year where it was used to take our little dog out to do her business. In the rain. And then left in the garage to dry. After an all-over treatment from Leather Nova’s Cleaner & Conditioner, it felt better than the day I gave it to him. Many, many, many (like, a lot of) years ago. And now with many more years to come. So while it wasn’t my favorite of the three, it still did an outstanding job on it’s own.

Leather Nova seems to have a passion for leather (not like that, dirty birds), and takes it’s products serious. It offers a 90 day, no questions asked guarantee, too. Use the product for up to 90 days and if you’re unsatisfied for any reason at all, contact them for a full and prompt refund. Environmentally friendly and manufactured in small batches to ensure quality, I am impressed with the dedication and devotion shown to their products.

NorthOne: Digital Tire Pressure Gauge Review #NorthONE

 

 

IMAG2085

Some things in life we tend to take for granted. The sun will rise every morning. The water will come on when you turn the knob, and your tires will have air in them, because that’s how you left them. Yet one of those things is not always an either/or situation. Tires need a specific air pressure to work their best, and most of us rarely check that pressure because we look and see the tires aren’t flat, and that’s good enough in a rush. Guess what? Good enough isn’t.

See, I have an SUV (sue me, this was from before that was a bad thing). Tires can be VERY expensive for our girl. Nearly $200 each. When you spend that kind of money, you want them to last. So when NorthONE offered me a Digital Tire Pressure Gauge, I thought to myself, hmm…you mean I can check my tires’ pressure without that silly stick thing, Hubby’s fancy compressor gauge, and not break a nail or get dirty? Uh, yes please!!

NorthONE’s gauge is 15 kinds of nifty too. Back-lit readout. Bright LED light on the nozzle. 4 different types of readout (PSI, Bar, kPa, & kg/cm). Auto off. Lightweight. Batteries are included! Yessss! With a grippy plasticized case, and a big loop on the back for a lanyard, this little Tire Gauge is my new best road buddy. One button operation and no more guessing if the little stick is in the right place, or between numbers. It reads quickly, and is as accurate as Hubby’s aforementioned big, lunky calibrated compressor gauge. Someone’s gonna be jealous!

If I had one gripe, it’s that while the batteries are included (thanks again for that, by the way), it’s not too easy to replace them. Which means this little guy I’ve come to like so much is meant to be disposable. Booooo! Luckily, Hubby was able to open him up and see that NorthONE’s digital Tire Gauge uses 3 LR44 batteries, which are cheap and easy to find. So while it not be terribly easy to replace, it’s also incredibly worthwhile.

This one is a must-buy! Your tires cost you a bundle, sometimes hundreds of dollars, and NorthONE’s tire gauge is only $12.99. With a 100% satisfaction guarantee, there’s nothing to lose here. Except your old stick gauge. Good riddance!
