Operation Experimentation Update

Here is update numero uno on Operation Experimentation:

Got the rubber conditioner in the mail the other day. This is what it looks like:

It came with a "Material Safety Data Sheet" which is a little intimidating at first but upon closer inspection, basically you just shouldn't eat, drink or spray this stuff in your eyes or on your skin. Ummm....DUH!

I took a pair of Black Tattoo City boots and, following the directions on the bottle, cleaned the boots off with a damp cloth. I then sprayed the left boot with the rubber conditioner and let it sit for a few minutes and wiped off the excess. Boy! That boot sure was shiny!! If nothing else, it really spiffs up your boots.

Can you see how the left boot is extra shiny?? It shows up even better in person.

Then I put both boots outside on my front porch where they are exposed to the elements. This is their new home:

They get mostly morning sun at this point but as spring wanes to summer, it will get hotter and sunnier out there. This is the location of my aforementioned boots which turned to dust after a summer sitting out under the bench you see in this photo.

After a few days sitting out there, nothing much has changed of course. I'll keep checking them every few days and will take pictures if I see any changes.

Until the next Operation Experimentation update....bloggin off.
