A 'nota bene' - there is "pure Neat's foot oil" and there is "Neat's foot oil compound". The compound can dissolve glues, although it never has for me; the pure article will not. Another good product is Lexol, but beware that it is an emulsion and if applied generously could dissolve water-soluble glue.
