Leather Care Instructions


When cleaning leather, there are certain products and methods you should avoid using to prevent damage and maintain the quality and appearance of the leather. Here is a list of things you should NOT USE when cleaning leather

Avoid using bleach, ammonia, or any other strong chemicals as they can strip the natural oils from the leather, leading to dryness and cracking.

Do not use rough sponges, scrub brushes, or harsh cloths as they can scratch and damage the leather surface.

While a small amount of water is generally fine, soaking leather or using excessive water can cause it to warp, discolor, and lose its shape.

Although saddle soap is commonly used for leather, it can be too harsh and may remove essential oils from certain types of leather.

These products are not suitable for leather cleaning and can leave a sticky residue or damage the leather finish.

Only use products specifically formulated for leather cleaning and conditioning. Other oils or conditioners might not be compatible with the leather and could lead to adverse effects

Avoid using heat sources like hairdryers, heaters, or direct sunlight to speed up the drying process. Leather should be allowed to air dry naturally.

Avoid using colored or printed paper towels or cloths, as the ink may transfer onto the leather.

These products contain alcohol and can harm the leather’s finish.

Avoid getting sticky substances like gum or adhesives on the leather as they can be challenging to remover without causing damage.


To clean leather properly, use a soft, damp cloth with mild, ph-balanced leather cleaner.


Gently wipe the leather surface, removing any dirt or stains, and then allow it to air dry.


After cleaning, use a leather conditioner or cream to replenish the natural oils and keep the leather soft and supple.


Always test any new cleaning products on a not clearly visible area first to ensure they are safe for your specific type of leather.
