acidic sweat
Hi CD, my sweat has the habit of eating anything leather that I wear, carry or touch on a regular basis. My wallet looks like a rag, the leather was eaten away in my trouser pocket & the steeringwheel in my car has no leather left either. I seem to burnout the leather shoes i wear (leather finally begins to disintegrate after 6 months). Is there a name for this condition & how can I cure myself?

Dear Shooter,
I don't know of anything specific you can do - I don't think this is a "disease" per se. I'll read up a bit and see if I find anything - just remind me in a day of 3 again?
