Curious Question Concerning Leather
Curious Question Concerning Leather & Body Chemistry.
Just Wondering (curious person that I am) if User Body Chemistry could affect a leather rig.
Corrode the actual leather itself or bleed the dye?
Here is WHY I'm asking that question.
My brother is the nicest guy in the world but, he is EXTREMELY ACIDIC.
He can just touch a firearm and his fingerprints will rust right into a polished blued finish in very short order.
His sweat also causes dyed/colored shirts & T~Shirts to "bleach out white" in the armpit area.
When I worked doing electroplating...I worked with a couple of guys that could just touch Copper & Brass & burn indelible prints into the polished bare metal surface and that would show up in just a few minutes. Powerful sweat!
So...could a leather holster in close contact with that sort of body chemistry suffer Dye Bleeding Problems in hot, sweaty weather?
Just one of those bizarre thoughts that popped into my head.:blink:
