Leather Cleaning

February 6, 2007 loretto

The first step to leather care is keeping your leather clean. This can be accomplished
with a soft, moist rag. Wipe the leather in a small, circular pattern to remove any
surface dirt and grime. For heavier soiling, use a small amount of liquid soap,
making sure to wipe with a clean, wet rag to remove residue. It’s advisable to use
quality leather soap to deep-clean the material. Follow this with either a moisturizer
or oil specifically developed for leather products. The use of the moisturizer or oil
will keep the leather from cracking or tearing. Professional leather cleaning is
recommended for all leathers, and fabric garments trimmed with leather. Normal dry cleaning methods will not yield proper results. It is advisable to clean matching garments at the same time, since a slight variation is color or texture may occur as a natural result of the cleaning process. Natural marks and wrinkles could become more apparent after cleaning. Garment may shrink slightly, but will stretch again with wear.
