I went full retard and used laundry detergent on my corter leather belt.

How do I remove the laundry stain from the belt?
 It's darkened lie dark mahogany. 
Just curious, is your corter belt also not waxed on one side? 
Sorry, I don't know how to get rid of leather stains...

anyone knows how often should i oil my belt?
As often as you like. Me, I don't think I'll ever oil my belt.
But really you should condition it every 6 months just to make it last longer and look better
alright,i get it now. thanks for replying! blushing

I can make you a 9-10 oz veg tanned belt like this one (its a 1 3/4) I can do 1 3/4 inch or 1 1/2 inch wide belts. with roller buckles. with hand waxed and burnished edges for $50. Let me know if your interested if not hit up Hollows leather or Obbi Good Label.  (this belt has been worn for about 2 months)

so i found this http://redd.it/k6uro and it teaches you how to make your own leather belt with supplies purchased from tanner goods. its pretty cheap and once you buy the tools (hole puncher, xacto knife, etc) you can basically make a quality leather belt for like $15-25

be careful what you pretend to be

^ That's what I've been wearing for the past (almost) 2 years haha. 
And to clarify you're using materials from Tandy Leather Factory.

What do you guys think? Is the belt too short? You can see it barely sticking out from under the loop. Oh, and shoutouts to @slap for helping me out.

I have a Corter belt on the way and am unsure of what to treat it with. There's a million products it seems and the more I read up on which is best, the more lost I feel. I don't know shit about leather care yet and I can't be alone. If anyone has any insight (beyond "I use product X") then it would be appreciated. What are some pros and cons of some products? What properties does one possess over another? How do they affect color or softness relative to each other? Which ones waterproof? Stuff like that. Anything will be helpful.

Corter has a care page I do believe. I would personally just wear it for a break in period around 3 months. after that I would just look for a good leather preservative. Obenaufs makes my favorite, its not super waxy but sheds water wells and gives it a real nice touch. or some mink oil. most will do basically the same thing. however mink will darken a bit more than others in my experience.

Thanks for the reply! I've glossed over that care page and do believe Eric knows what he's talking about. I just get overwhelmed when I read suggestions elsewhere that mention a thousand other products/care methods by a thousand other people, each as "the best." Ultimately, I did go with a suggestion from Corter. I ordered up some pure neatsfoot oil and Pecard leather dressing (it was cheaper than Obenauf's) which isn't extremely far from Eric's personal method of mink oil and Obenauf's. I don't have the belt or either of the other products in hand yet (though 2 of the 3 should be at the post office right now), so I might do a break-in period like you suggested. I now get the feeling it's going to take a lot of experimentation with many leather products to find out what works better than others.
