HOW TO BEST CARE FOR LEATHER
The beauty of leather is that it will last a lifetime. This classic material is timeless, elegant, and designed to withstand everyday stains and scrapes. However, giving our leather some TLC will help ensure a long life for your favorite leather goods so here are some tips to keep your leather in top shape.
CONDITION YOUR LEATHER
Leather appreciates an occasional conditioning with leather oil or wax. This will rehydrate and bring out the original coloring. We suggest you condition your leather when it starts to look faded.
KEEP YOUR HANDS CLEAN
The oils from your hands will be absorbed into leather. Keeping your hands clean will help keep your leather looking sharp. We know, even clean hands will add some oil, but don’t worry, that little bit will only add to the beautiful patina of your piece.
SPOT CLEAN STAINS
An important part of leather care is to clean stains as quickly as possible. You won’t always be able to catch spills right away but removing them as soon as possible will help prevent extreme discoloration. Use a clean, light colored cloth. If it is a strong stain, try 1/3 part dish detergent to 2 parts water. Remember that over time, the leather will absorb the stain. Conditioning the leather after you have tried to remove a tough stain such as wine may help the stain blend in and look less obvious.
These tips will help to keep your bags, shoes and jackets looking fresh and stylish. However remember that the nature of leather wears in like a good friend. It is meant to change as it gets older, revealing its true value.
