Absolutely the best Leather Care I have ever used. 30 years in the saddle business and I have never seen anything work like Doc Bailey’s Leather Black. It gives the Leather everything it needs. Clean, Condition, Re-dye and waterproof..I recommend it to all my custom leather clients.

Recently I called the phone number listed on the website. I purchased a Corvette convertible and the previous owner had tried to silicone the rear glass back into the rag top. Needless to say, they got silicone all over the black top. Having used Doc Baileys for years, I figured I could cover the spots with a coat of Doc’s, but figured I would call just in case I was wrong. Well, I called and got to talking to the gentleman that answered and he told me to use mineral spirits first to remove the silicone which by the way I had tried everything and was ready to buy a new 1200.00 dollar top. So I tried this and it worked perfectly and then I put a coat of Doc Baileys on the top and it looks like factory new. I sent a thank you email and received a response from Doc himself. It was him that I was talking to. How cool was this. A business owner answering the phone, and giving great advice and explaining to me exactly how to do everything. These days most companies could care less about the customer. Not the case when you deal with Doc Baileys!!! Sorry about the long review, but if you are considering “any” Doc Bailey products, do yourself a favor and buy them. I have been using them for years and I can truly say they are the best out there!!!
Thanks again Doc!!!

The first time I bought Leather Black was at the Friday the 13th bikers gathering in Port Dover, Ontario, approximately 25 years ago. It was the original Canadian made product. There was a young guy from Doc Bailey’s giving a demo and what I saw as very convincing. So I bought my first bottle there and then. I used it on shoes mostly and found it to be perfect in protecting leather against the salty winter slush that dries up and damages leather boots and shoes. It does a great job of water, and therefore slush-proofing the leather. It does prevent cracking due to road salt. Truly excellent! I found it to also do wonders on PATENT LEATHER. My wife had an evening purse in black patent leather which did not see that much action over the years. Hence, it got covered in a whitish haze which was impossible to wash off. I used a small amount of Doc Bailey’s Leather Black and wiped lightly for maybe a minute, the haze completely came off and the surface looked like brand new. Amazing! I used the Leather Tonic on a Peruvian leather coffee table which had suffered from years from spills of all sorts, salad dressing, beer, pop, you name it. I first cleaned it as best I could with a damp rag and let it dry. I then applied Doc Bailey’s Leather Tonic and it simply looked like brand new! No more stains or dull spots. I would highly recommend the Doc’s products. 25 years of satisfaction! FIVE STARS AIN’T ENOUGH!!!!!

I am a police officer and have had a leather jacket for close to 20 years. Recently is was looking a little worn out. I bought Doc Bailey’s and now my jacket looks GOOD AS NEW!!!! It is my favorite jacket both on and off duty so I am happy to see it looking so good. My wife saw what Doc Bailey’s did for my jacket and has now used it on her leather. I will recommend this to all my friends and I will certainly purchase more. Plus the staff is friendly and is always willing to take time to answer questions. They have a customer for life.
