Good leather is not cheap, in fact great leather shoes, handbags, jackets, belts, wallets, sofas are expensive. Beside the money aspect, finding a perfect pair of leather shoes, handbag or leather jacket takes a lot of time and effort. Because of that, it would just make sense to learn a few tips and tricks and spend a little bit of time to maintain those pieces so that they look good and keep you company as long as possible. In fact, leather doesn't wear out that easily, thus if you take the proper care, it will last for years and years and could be passed from one generation to another. In fact, one of our customers George, who got two leather jackets from his grandfather told us that he was so glad that he was able to restore them from drab to fab as they mean a lot to him. Let's take a look at the various steps in the leather maintenance process.
This step is only necessary if your leather item is heavily soiled or dirty. If your leather item has major stains, it's best to bring it to a professional leather cleaner instead of trying to do it yourself and risk of ruining your beloved leather item.
A quality clener should not leave any greasy residue behind. Why is that important? Because residue makes leather susceptible to bacteria and can break down the stitching of your item.
Use this occasionally. They contain fats and/or oils that help lubricate leather and replenish the suppleness but WATCH OUT for petroleum or mineral oils. While petroleum does help to soften the leather at first, they damage the leather because the breathability is compromised by the oil.

If the leather item is a handbag or shoes, it's a good idea to stuff them with paper to retain shape.
Leather is a natural material and should never be stored in plastic because it encourages the growth of mildew and bacteria and will ruin the leather.
