    Question Armorall?

    I recently bought a natural cairns new yorker and I wore it to my FF1+2 class that I take, and an officer from the town I was in told me if I wanted to take good care of it I should put armorall on it, because it doesnt have paint.

    SO I have a couple questions about that...

    Is armorall a wax? Is it flammable!? And will it help? or is it a dumb idea?

    Don't put anything on it. You bought the natural, for the natural look...just leave it be.

    Armorall is the stuff you put on your tires to make them look shiney. I wouldn't advise putting it on your Yorker.

    Armorall is a water based product. It is intended for vinyl and rubber surfaces, not leather.

    I think he was just jerking your chain.
    Just know, I chose my own fate. I drove by the fork in the road and went straight.

    I wouldnt put anything on any piece of bunkergear aside from a mild detergent & water solution to clean it according to the manufacturers instructions.

    Well I was referring to armorall for leather...but I think I will just leave it be, if anything happens to the leather I can just paint it.

    Thanks

    The only thing armorall is good for is cleaning the officers leather seat so he slides out of it.

    I'll save you some looking. Straight from the owner's manual...

    3. Leather Shell [Models N5A and
    N6A]:
    a. To clean, use only mild detergents
    and lukewarm water. To
    remove dripping of tar, industrial
    cleaners (such as DuPontģ Tar
    Remover) can be used. Use only
    on tar spots, not the entire surface.
    Other spots can be
    cleaned with alcohol if an organic
    solvent is required. Markings
    or touch-ups can be done with a
    good quality enamel.
    The manual also says to clean and inspect it after each use (I have yet to meet a firefighter that does this).

    Thanks for the help
