Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

This spray is also a great fix for other accessories like bags.
Schofield recommends Bickmore’s Gard-More spray if you live in an area with particularly harsh weather conditions. It works on full-grain leather, suede, and nubuck.
It's non-toxic and non-flammable. It will safely remove most oil and water-based stains from suede, nubuck, leather and fabric.
Not only does it remove water and oil stains, but it also softens and conditions them, making sure they last long.
However, because it is so strong, it is one of the best things you could use on oily and beer-soaked shoes.

What reviewers didn't like

It has a strong odor.
Not suitable for suede shoes
The one problem some buyers have had with this product was that they mistook it for the Bickmore water proofer.
