Anybody know what's safe to use on leather boots to de-grease them ? My work boots are beyond nasty, but still in great shape.
I need to clean them, but obviously I don't want to ruin the leather. Any help ?

best to call a few shoe repair places and ask, they'll know for sure. I'd imagine you'd be fine with a citrus degreaser though.

Don't use thinner, it will dry the leather out too much. I know from personal experience. :(

Murphy's Oil Soap. Spray, scrub, rinse. Condition leather w/a good leather conditioner like Lexus, Maguire's or Zymol.
Saddle soap
What they said. You're in Texas now... there's a tack shop at every corner... so I hear. Should be able to find a good leather cleaner...

*or*

I've found that a scrub brush and some dish soap that has a good degreaser in it will work quite well at cleaning grease/oil/chain gunk off just about anything.
