Hey guys, I'd be happy to share with you a five simple steps to maintain and extend the longevity of your leather products:
Step 1: Regular Cleaning and Dusting
Make it a habit to clean your leather products regularly. Use a soft, damp cloth to wipe away any dust, dirt, or stains.⠀
Step 2: Use with Care
Treat your leather products with care to minimize wear and tear. Avoid overloading your bags or wallets with heavy items. Don’t put more cards inside the wallet then it was in it’s description. Additionally, be cautious with sharp objects or abrasive surfaces that can scratch or cut the leather.⠀
Step 3: Avoid Exposure to Extreme Conditions
Leather is susceptible to damage from extreme heat, cold, and humidity. Keep your leather products away from direct sunlight and heat sources, such as radiators or heaters. Avoid storing them in overly humid environments or damp areas.⠀
Step 4: Store Properly
When not in use, store your leather products in a cool, dry place. If possible, stuff them with soft tissue paper or a cloth to help retain their shape. Avoid folding or putting pressure on the leather, as it can lead to permanent creases and wrinkles.⠀
Step 5: Leather Balm
Leather is a natural material that needs to retain its moisture to stay supple and prevent cracking. Use a good leather balm and apply it according to the product instructions. Such type of maintaining should be done periodically or as needed, depending on usage and exposure to elements. My personal advice is to apply the Smith’s Leather Balm (which you can buy in our shop) at least once per month, it will give a good protection and keep your leather goods in a nice condition.
By following these five simple steps, you can significantly extend the life of your leather products and keep them looking beautiful and functional for years to come. Remember that proper care and maintenance are essential for preserving the natural charm and durability of leather.
