I cleaned my strop for the 1st time this weekend... I wanted to clean off excess white paste that I felt was causing my blade to skip but I also used saddle soap on the leather. After, I used shoe conditioned but when it dried and I bent it (slightly) I see these faint white lines. It also feels drier when I pull a razor over it. I did some more leather conditioner then some ballistol. I'm also running my hands over it but it still doesn't feel as nice as before. I'm concerned I can't use it to strop until I figure this out.
