All that is necessary is to have your boots clean and apply this dressing with a sponge. The boots appear like the very best French leather.

Much hard work is saved, as no brushing is required. To make a quart vessel full will only cost about twenty cents.

Recipe: 

Mix half a pint of the best vinegar with a quarter pint of soft water; stir into it one ounce of glue (broken up), two ounces log-wood chips, one-sixteenth ounce of finely-powdered indigo, one-sixteenth ounce of the best soft soap, one-sixteenth ounce of isinglass.


Put the mixture over the fire, let it boil ten minutes or more; then strain, bottle and cork. When cold it is fit for use. Apply with a sponge.
