Tip 1: If your leather gets dirty, wipe it with a damp soft cloth or good brush to remove dirt from the surface. Don’t use any objects like soap or the like, just use a damp cloth to keep it clean. You should avoid water because moisture Makes it look dull.

Tip 2: If the leather is wet, dry it slowly at room temperature. Avoid direct sunlight or a hair dryer, room temperature with moderate air works better than direct heaters. Beware of quick drying which can change the chemical structure of your leather.

Care

Tip 3: If your leather is too dry, rub it with a leather care lotion. The leather needs proper nutrition and care to maintain long-term flexibility. Twice a year, use a quality leather care lotion to keep your bag young. It will also prevent the leather from drying out.



Tip 4: Hydrate your leather properly. Use a leather cream or filling, preferably recommended by your vendor. Always use a clear lotion if you do not have a matching lotion color suitable for your leather. Put a small amount of lotion on a brush or cloth and apply it evenly over the product and let the lotion dry.

Protect

Tip 6: wrap it in baking paper. Leather products need a little air, so don’t wrap them in plastic. Store your leather in a place with good air circulation. You keep it in shape by filling it with newspaper stuffing.
