Taking care of a leather holster is really very simple, but it seems to be the most common reason that holsters go bad. Leather is an organic material and it does neet just a bit of care to make it last.
The easiest way to take care of a leather holster is to apply a nice coat of paste wax or neutral colored show polish to it at least twice a year. This provides the leather with just the right amount of moisture and coats it in a protective layer of wax. Once the wax turns a hazy color, simply buff it off with a clean cloth ot horsehair brush.
Be wary of leather cleaners and leather treaments as they contain chemicals designed to soften leather. This will ruin a good holster quicker than anything else. One or two coats of a "cleaner" and the holster will stop retaining it's form. Stay away from Mink oil, Neatsfoot oil, and saddle soap as they all contain a leather softening agent.
If you aren't sure about what to use, stick with good old fashion paste show wax. It works great and is very inexpensive.
