Default Belt squeaking after applying belt conditioner?

Is there such a thing as too much belt conditioner? May have been overly generous with it because the drive belt around the alternator and power steering has started squeaking, any idea what the source may be?

I've generally been advised against using belt conditioner on the belts.
From past research, IIRC, a squealing belt could mean that it's loose and needs to be tightened.

If your belt is cracking or due for a replacement, I would just replace it - they're cheap and easy to replace.
