so my leather belt went through the wash and it looks as if the "finish" or something wore off. it's a light brown now instead of a dark brown.

I'm wondering if there's a way i can treat it and maybe get it back to look good again. oil i can buy, polish, anything?

uh..I dont' have any before pictures so it wouldn't really help out much.

think of a dark leather belt. now imagine in your mind that somebody used sandpaper to take the finish off of it. or that it's been bleached out by sitting in the sun for years. that's what it looks like. (it's not fuzzy or anything liek sandpaper would do to it, it's just a much lighter color now)

Don't put shoe shine on it, you'll ruin your pants. BUy some leather conditioner (possibly in the shoe section, works great on leather jackets) and rub that into it. You may be able to find some tinted conditioner too, that would help darken it better.

so this leather conditioner stuff, how much does it cost?
