Orvus is marketed as quilt soap - and dog wash! but it works very well for vintage textiles.
Oh what a wonderful resource! I very much enjoyed reading it.
My mother gave me some dubbin many years ago for vintage leather (it used to be used regularly in the 40s & 50s and probably even before then). It works particularly well for dry and cracked leathers, shoes, handbags, belts etc. Not for use on suede or nubuck though. It is oil based so any leather that will spoil with a drop of oily liquid is a no go.
I learn something every time I read it.
