How to take care of genuine leather?

Taking care of genuine leather ensures that the leather looks good and lasts for
many years. Here are some tips on how to take care of genuine leather:

  1. Clean regularly. Genuine leather should be cleaned regularly with a soft cloth to
    remove any dirt and dust. Make sure to use a soft cloth, as abrasive materials can
    damage the leather.
  2. Condition occasionally. A quality protector should be applied to genuine leather
    every few months to keep it from drying out and cracking. The products help to
    hydrate the leather and keep it supple.
  3. Protect from the elements. Exposure to the sun, rain, and other elements can
    cause genuine leather to fade, develop mold, get discoloured (from dark jeans etc.)
    and crack. To prevent this, keep genuine leather furniture out of direct sunlight, away
    from water and apply a protector or shield to minimise colour transfer.
  4. Avoid extreme temperatures. Genuine leather should not be exposed to extreme
    temperatures as this can damage the material. When storing genuine leather, make
    sure to keep it in a cool, dry place.
  5. Use the right products. When cleaning genuine leather, make sure to use the right
    products. Avoid harsh detergents and chemicals, as these can permanently damage
    the leather’s finish.
  6. Use a professional: Consider using a professional leather care and restoration
    company. They can help clean, repair, restore and maintain your leather whether its
    furniture, fashion accessories (shoes, bags, wallets and jackets), wall pannels and
