Leather Care

Natural Grain Leather

For everyday care:
Use a dry, clean, and soft cloth to dust or remove debris from surface. Avoid long-term exposure to direct sunlight. Color transfer may occur due to friction against clothing and other surfaces. If leather becomes wet, blot with a dry, clean and soft cloth to remove standing water, and then air dry. Note that leather is susceptible to water damage/stains.

To spot clean:
Use a soft, dampened cloth to gently clean the surface using a light circular motion. Do not scrub or rub in one spot for an extended period of time or apply too much pressure when cleaning as this may damage and discolor the leather. Allow leather to air dry; never apply heat to leather. Note that some stains may not come clean from the surface of semi-aniline and aniline leathers.

Annual Cleaning and Conditioning for longevity:
Prior to conditioning, follow instructions for everyday care and spot cleaning to ensure surface is free of dirt and debris. Use a leather cream, such as Chamberlain's Leather Milk Formula No. 1, annually or as needed to condition the leather item and prolong life. Using a clean cloth or soft sponge, apply a small amount of conditioner to the leather surface in a light circular motion. Spot conditioning may cause uneven color as leather conditioners may darken leather. For best use, follow conditioning product instructions. Over conditioning may leave undesired residue on leather surface.
Always test all creams and balms in a hidden area first as leather will darken.
