When it comes to caring for your leather, keeping it plain and simple is the way to go. Please see below for some easy ways to keep your leather in top condition.
- IF YOUR LEATHER GETS EVER GETS WET, JUST DRY IT!
Gently dab your garment as soon as possible with a dry towel and then simply allow it to air dry. Do not use a heat source such as a hair dryer to speed up the drying. If drying a bag, you can stuff the inside with newspaper as this will help the bag hold its shape and also help absorb moisture from the interior.
- WATERPROOF OR CONDITION
Use a leather waterproof spray such as scotch guard before use so that you can easily clean the leather should you get it dirty. If your leather is feeling dry use a leather conditioner and massage it into the leather. Use a clean cloth to gently wipe off excess.
- IF YOUR LEATHER GETS DIRTY, simply give it a CLEAN!
Always handle your leather with clean, dry hands as oil and other residues will easily transfer to leather. Every other day, you can simply wipe your leather garment with a soft, dry, or slightly damp cloth. For extra care (although not necessary) Once or twice a year, you can remove any dirt build-up by wiping down your leather bag with a leather cleaner. Apply in a circular motion and wipe off with a slightly damp cloth to avoid clogging the pores of the leather.
- IF YOU’RE NOT USING YOUR LEATHER, STORE IT!
Store your leather garment in a space away from heat, humidity, sunlight, and dust - preferably in a fabric bag or box. You should also air leather bags, jackets, and wallets once every few weeks to prevent any mould from forming.
By following these simple guidelines, your leather will become more beautiful and last a life time.
