Jules,

was just wondering how the lizard skin getting slipping cos they have surface grain which susposed to give them better fricition(gripping) as compared to normal leather? Anyway I'm using normal leather polishing solution to keep them well moisturized, same as maintaining leather shoe.

Pledge usually works for me... Spray it on the cloth and wipe it on the wrap.

well i think it was the coating that made it slippery...or maybe i'm just dumb and it's not lizard and it might be snake which i hardly doubt....i ask Paul Thornley if it was lizard he said it might be some kind of a reptilian skin.

Thanks for the info guy's.

I tried Kiwi Parade Gloss, it works really well and you are able to get a Mirror Finish using this stuff.

Give it a try it's really good stuff.
