    As they are now:


    Procedure included chemical stripping, sanding with superfine sandpaper, and many light coats of Tru-Oil with superfine sanding in between.

    Very nice.

    I like dampened denim with Bon Ami worked into it for finishing between coats of oil. I don't use that for the final rub down, however, just dry denim.

    Edit: I just looked up the product and have noticed they changed the ingredients slightly. I've not used it since they did that, so ...
