Leather is a popular, durable material that retains its value with the right maintenance. Preserve your investment by protecting leather from wear, soil, and sun.
If you own fine leather furniture, drive in a car with leather seats or enjoy personal leather items, you understand that leather generally reflects the care it is given. A well-maintained leather jacket lasts for decades, far beyond the next fashion season.
When you buy a good leather bag, or install leather in your boat or airplane cabin, you know you are buying quality. Most vendors recommend that you clean and condition your leather goods, whatever their use. Here are some answers to commonly asked questions about leather maintenance:
How often should I clean leather? Whether in your car or on your couch, aim at using a high quality cleaner and conditioner on your leather surfaces about once a month. In the aviation industry, maintenance of leather dress covers keeps seats supple and extends their usage life span.
Is leather conditioner really necessary? Leather is composed of fibers from hides that shift and flex with the material. Without conditioning to lubricate and protect these fibers, they dry and eventually crack. As conditioner helps leather remain supple, it also forms a protective barrier to help your leather resist stains, wear, stress, and sun damage. Even leather needs a good sunscreen.
What can I use to condition my leather? All Leather Maintenance carries a full line of leather cleaners, conditioners, and supplies to safely and effectively clean all kinds of finished leather. Our Leather Conditioner is easy to use right out of the bottle.
How do I use your leather conditioner? Use a clean cloth to apply the formula to previously-cleaned leather surfaces and work in the conditioning cream with gentle, circular hand pressure. Wipe off any excess and wait about five minutes for the surface to dry before use.
