Leathers are fashionably luxurious and addictive to collect. For that reason owning leather goods is like owning precious items that needs extra care. Whether you receive it as a gift or buy one for yourself, you will want to keep it looking good for years ahead. If leather is not properly maintained it can start to look worn promptly and eventually develop cracks and tears. Hence, these simple steps can help your leather retain all the beauty always in their best condition.
Did you know? Before leather goods are worn for the first time, especially shoes, they should be given basic waterproofing treatment to protect them against deeply engrained dirt and penetrating moisture. For periodic treatment, smooth leather can be polished and suede leather can be roughened. Retreat leather goods with waterproof care regularly, depending on the frequency of wear and strain.
For more care, try to apply leather conditioner. Using a soft, lint-free cloth, apply a small amount of conditioner, and work it into the leather in a circular motion. Be careful not to get too much, as a little bit goes a long way. Wipe off the excess conditioner, and repeat until the entire surface has been treated. Moisture will harm leather, causing ugly stains and stiffness. If your leather gets wet, hang it in a dry place, and allow it to air-dry naturally. Don't be tempted to speed the drying process with a hair dryer or radiator since this could damage the leather. Also do not expose your leather to direct sunlight for long periods of time.
When spoiled with stain, treat stain quickly. Use a soft brush to remove as much of the spilled substance as possible with clean and care leather product. The newest technology is now easing you with the 3 in 1 complete cleaning, care, and waterproof foam. Just shale and spray from 10 cm distance then let dry for at least 30 minutes. Buff or brush with special leather brush to remove any residue.
Make sure to store them in clean condition in a dry closet, protected from extreme temperatures. Use a padded hanger if you hang clothing apparel like jacket or place it in a porous garment bag for other leather accessories like bags, belts, or other small items. Do not store leather goods in a plastic bag because leather needs to breathe in order to stay in top condition.
