Someone recently entered this question into a search engine: “can you use reptile boot cleaner on ostrich leather?”
I will begin with some information. Reptile boot cleaner or conditioner has almost the same chemicals in it as general leather conditioner. That is, the product does not have soap or detergents in it, but it does have oils in it that are in very small particles and therefore are more easily absorbed into whatever it is applied to — snake scales, bird skin (“ostrich leather”), or real leather.
The answer to this question therefore is, yes, you can use reptile boot cleaner (conditioner) on ostrich leather. However, the reason why I do not recommend this practice is the cost. So-called “reptile” boot conditioner costs more than traditional leather conditioner, and they work the same way on ostrich skins that are tanned and treated much like cow leather is.
So, save yourself some money and use traditional leather conditioner on ostrich boots. Just to make sure your ostrich skins will be okay, try the conditioner you are using on a small spot first and let it dry. If it does not discolor the boot, then you’ll be fine. Then you can treat the entire boot and not waste product.
Life is short: read the label.
