    I have some leather bayonet frogs that have dried up and are brittle. Is there a proven way to get them back to their supple selves?

    Lexol have used it forever. If leather is dirty start with neutral ph cleaner, then you can use the conditioner..

    Lexol works well for me too, but some items may be past the point of no return.

    From what I've read there is, as Andrew put it, a point of no return. At some point the organic structures simply break down. There's nothing that can be done at that point other than, perhaps, preventing it from getting worse. It's why we see broken, brittle leather pieces on display in museums despite all the resources and expertise at their disposal.
