It's—cornstarch! I posted ages ago about trying to remove an old oil stain in clothing using this. The cornstarch sucked up some of the stain...after that I tried flour, and that worked better...but only Dawn dishwashing detergent actually obliterated the stain. Yup, plain old Dawn liquid, the kind you use to hand-wash dishes.

From another old post...I finally got some of this, but haven't tried it yet. Supposedly you can not only use it to stop runs, you can apply it on high-stress areas to prevent holes/runs in the first place.

Leather Honey

Been meaning to try this for a while...apparently it was developed as a conditioner for leather saddles (and was known as "Harness Honey"), but it's supposed to work on any leather product (except suede). I was particularly intrigued by the idea of using it on leather shoe soles; some guy claimed his soles lasted way longer that way.
