I use it both on the underside to keep the leather moist and supple, and on the topside to give the leather an attractive finish. I apply with a damp cloth, though if the saddle is on a bike, one usually ends up using ones fingers to work the Profhide into all the hard to reach spots on the underside. On the topside, I spread the Proofhide on the saddle with the damp cloth, then let dry 30 minutes to an hour, then buff with a clean dry cloth (old socks work pretty well). Some people seem to let the Proofhide set longer (maybe even overnight) before buffing. Many people say to use Proofhide only a few times per year, though I must admit to using it a bit more often, at least to soften a new saddle, or to try to restore a dry old one.
