Leather Conditioner: Leather Honey since 1968 "Makes Leather Last Longer"

How to Clean Leather Wallets

Every day you rely on your leather wallet to keep your money, credit cards and driver’s license safe. Yet because of this everyday handling, your wallet picks up all the oil and dirt from your hands. You may even occasionally drop it into something sticky or spill something on it. Proper cleaning can help keep your wallet looking like new for many years to come. These steps are simple, but will make a tremendous difference in the longevity of your wallet.

 

Choose the Right Cleaner

 

Properly cleaning your leather wallet begins with the right product. Leather Honey Leather Cleaner is a safe, non-toxic cleaner that will loosen all grit and grime from your wallet and let it shine like new again. When combined with Leather Honey Leather Conditioner, Leather Honey Leather Cleaner is the ideal tool for cleaning your leather products.

 

Prepare the Area

 

Because leather wallets are small, you will want to place some newspaper under it to protect the surface where you are conditioning against any excess cleaner dripping off. You do not need to do any advanced preparation on the wallet itself, as the leather cleaner will do all of the work for you — unless it has mildew damage. If you notice mildew, spray the leather with a combination of apple cider vinegar and water to kill it.

 

Dilute your Leather Honey Leather Cleaner in a 1:8 ratio of cleaner to water, which would be 1 ounce (two tablespoons) of the cleaner to 8 ounces (one cup) of water. Add this to a spray bottle for easy application.

Steps for Cleaning

 

Now that your area and cleaner are ready, you are ready to begin:

 

1. Spray a small amount of the cleaner onto a dry Lint-Free Application Cloth.

 

2. Use the application cloth or brush to work it into the nooks and crannies of the wallet.

 

3. Wipe off the cleaner. Dirt, grit and grime will come off with the cleaner.

 

4. Allow the wallet to dry completely.

 

5. Follow up with Leather Honey Leather Conditioner. This will add moisture and provide a water-resistant barrier to protect the leather.

 

When you are finished with this process, you will be amazed at the difference it makes. Often with a simple cleaning and conditioning, you will breathe new life into your wallet, giving you many more years of use.

How To Make A Wallet Last a Lifetime

Wallets are a necessity; they are almost indispensable when it comes to modern living. Wallets carry your identification, credit cards and money, among other important items. On top of their organizational and functional value, wallets are also considered somewhat of a fashion item. To some people, the wallet they carry speaks volumes about who they are and what’s valuable to them.

Whether you use your wallet as an optimized organizational tool for any item you need throughout the course of the day, or you hope that your wallet makes a bold fashion statement about your personality, it’s still an equally important item. Once you’ve found the wallet that fits your needs perfectly, you want it to last for a long time. With the proper amount of leather care and leather maintenance, you can make your wallet last a lifetime.

Wallets made of all kinds of leather, even exotic leather, can benefit from a regular cleaning with quality leather cleaner, such as Leather Honey Leather Cleaner. Regularly cleaning your wallet helps maintain its appearance and the durability that ensures it will serve its purpose for a long time. Keeping your leather clean prevents mold and fading, locking in a rich, majestic feel. Proper leather care requires a thorough cleaning whenever there is a clear and present need.

A proper approach to leather maintenance that will help extend the functional life of your leather wallet and keep it looking like new should also incorporate leather conditioning. Using a leather conditioner, such as Leather Honey Leather Conditioner, restores the natural oils to the leather that comprises your wallet, keeping it moist and the fibers flexible to prevent cracking when your wallet is filled with your personal items.

Money, credit cards, identification cards and driver’s licenses are things that can be handled by a large quantity of people many times a day. Bacteria and dust find ways into your wallet, affecting the leather’s look and durability. With a focus on leather care and leather maintenance that includes the using leather cleaner and leather conditioner regularly, you can ensure that your wallet looks and performs like it did the day you first bought it and broke it in. It already holds items of both monetary and sentimental value — you should expect that it should last a lifetime.

Client Testimonial ~ Barry

Hello,

I did receive the product and I am beyond pleased with the results. My father in law flew a B-26 Bomber in WW2 over North Africa against Rommel. He was a decorated ace and true hero. He wore a leather flight suit, shearling lined. All their missions were at night. He said they lost 20% of the planes on a monthly basis. He was there for two years of his life. How he survived he said was a miracle indeed. One day while surfing EBAY I saw and bid on a flight jacket complete with hood just like the one he wore. I won the coat and waited with much anticipation to see the real condition it was in. It was faded, very dry but in very good condition to be at least 70 years old, maybe 80 now.

The first bottle of Leather Honey I applied it took almost 3/4 of the bottle, just like u said it would! I read the testimonials and believed what they had written. Your product is crystal clear and does have to be painted on, gooey just like honey. It darkened the jacket, as I expected but one week later it lightened back up, maybe 50%. The leather was soft, supple, and no oily or sticky feeling. The jacket seemed to be saying THANK YOU THANK YOU!!

A good deal of the distressed look has returned, with lights and darks, and for sure someone wore this coat many times. I applied the second coat about a week later with truly remarkable results, AGAIN! I feel that I have preserved it for many more years and plan to wear it many times to honor him. I have used many products like mink oil, saddle soap etc over the years on saddles, bridals, boots, belts. LEATHER HONEY IS BY FAR THE WINNER IN PUTTING MOISTURE BACK INTO OLD LEATHER AND RESTORING THE LEATHER. Now I am searching through my closets digging out my old baseball glove and anything else of leather I want to preserve. I wish you and your family much success and feel proud to brag about your product online. Please feel free to use any part of this as a testimonial for your product.

Best regards,

~ Barry

How Horse Enthusiasts Use Leather Cleaner and Leather Conditioner

The saddle is one of the most important pieces of equipment a horse enthusiast invests in. Most saddles spend hours on the back of a horse during the day, and then much more time in storage. If saddles, tack and other leather items aren’t properly cleaned, conditioned and stored, it can lead to moldy, dried or cracked leather with rips, tears and damage to the internal structure.

 

As a result, the maintenance and cleaning of horse saddles and horse tack is of the utmost importance to horse enthusiasts. Through the use of leather cleaner and leather conditioner for saddles, horse enthusiasts can thoroughly and regularly clean and condition their leather items, ensuring durability and longevity. Leather conditioner for saddles can even be used to restore heavily used, scratched or marked leather items.

 

Leather cleaner and leather conditioner are perfect for treating your reins, saddles, gloves and riding boots. In addition, your whips, bridles, halters and chaps can also be cleaned, conditioned or restored with leather cleaner and leather conditioner for saddles. Restoring used riding gear provides drastic improvement in the flexibility and durability of the leather by restoring its natural oils.

 

Proper maintenance is crucial and riding equipment can be expensive. However, leather cleaner and leather conditioner not only ensure longevity, they also keep your horses as safe and comfortable as possible during riding. Cracked and dry leather can lead to rubbing and chafing on the back of your horse. Keeping leather soft and flexible, or restoring it to a soft and flexible, like-new state is possible by regularly cleaning and conditioning leather riding gear.

 

Typically, leather items are cleaned first, and then leather conditioner is applied to do its work over a longer period of time. Regular cleaning and conditioning as needed is crucial to extending the life of leather riding equipment, enhancing durability and flexibility as well as giving it a clean and high-quality appearance. Essentially, leather cleaner and leather conditioner for saddles can keep them looking clean and new, as well as ensuring that they last longer.

To Clean or Condition First?

You spend so much money and so much time on your leather saddle, it makes sense that you spend just as much effort on cleaning and maintenance for your saddle and the rest of your leather items. Dry leather can actually have harmful effects on your horse. Due to chafing and rubbing from dry, stiff leather, saddles that aren’t properly taken care of can create raw spots on your horse. It is essential for you and your horse that you make sure your leather is completely pliable. How can you protect your leather items from oxidation, chemical damage, internal wear or breaking fibers and abrasion?

 

Most people turn to leather cleaners and conditioners, absolute must-haves when it comes to the upkeep of your saddles and other leather items. Using leather cleaner and leather conditioner is a simple enough process, something that anyone can become highly competent in with a bit of practice. However, there is some question as to whether, when cleaning your leather items, which item should be used first.

 

As leather cleaning and conditioning experts, we suggest using Leather Honey Leather Cleaner to clean your leather items thoroughly before using Leather Honey Leather Conditioner. Cleaning your items after conditioning could cause a few problems — most notably your leather will begin to dry out again. The leather conditioner is meant to be absorbed so it can restore the flexibility in the fibers, and sometimes it needs more than one coat and must sit overnight. Cleaning immediately after conditioning limits the amount of conditioner that can be absorbed. It is OK, however, to use a bit of leather cleaner to remove excess conditioner — but only after you have already performed a deep clean, conditioning, and allowed the conditioner ample time to absorb. We recommend 24 hours.

 

Cleaning and then conditioning your leather saddle and other items is essential to ensuring their longevity, flexibility and durability, as well as the well-being of your horse. Conditioning helps preserve the natural oils and moisture in leather, meaning you won’t have to replace your saddle nearly as frequently as you would if you neglected maintenance. Cleaning and conditioning your leather items regularly means your items are protected and your horse is happy.

How Often Should Leather Honey Products Be Used?

Leather Honey Leather Cleaner and Leather Honey Leather Conditioner are great tools for cleaning, conditioning or restoring your leather items such as boots, wallets, furniture, apparel, sports equipment, automobile upholstery, motorcycle equipment, saddles and horse tack. Ensuring that your leather items are clean and conditioned is essential to both a clean look as well as durability. Using high-quality leather cleaner and leather conditioner, such as Leather Honey Leather Cleaner and Leather Honey Leather Conditioner, ensures clean, durable leather, and can help you breathe life into your older leather items through restoration.

 

The act of cleaning and conditioning your leather items is not particularly difficult, and can be mastered with just a little bit of practice. However, some questions may arise over the frequency with which you clean and condition your items. How often should Leather Honey Leather Cleaner and Leather Honey Leather Conditioner products be used?

 

Luckily, cleaning and conditioning leather is our specialty. We recommend cleaning as needed, which is probably a minimum of every month or so. However, cars with white leather seats and other white leather items may need cleaning more often, and cleaning up any dirt right away in these situations is the best course of action. You should also consider conditioning when the seats are looking dry, which can be frequently if the car sits in a lot of sun or is in a dry climate.  As far as conditioning is concerned for the rest of your leather items, you should stick to a schedule that has you conditioning your leather every six months, as a general rule. This sort of frequency ensures that your leather lasts and remains durable. 

 

You probably have a lot invested in your leather items. It makes sense that you would want to be sure you are maintaining them in a way that will make them last while looking great. From your saddles and tack to your motorcycle equipment, boots, wallets or furniture, using Leather Honey Leather Cleaner and Leather Honey Leather Conditioner as directed ensures that your leather items are crack-free and have adequate moisture and flexibility

Leather Conditioner for Pet-Scratched Leather

If you’re like many pet owners, then you treat your pet as part of the family. Unfortunately, sometimes our pets really do believe they are part of the family and decide to recline on our furniture. Pet scratches happen when your pets make themselves at home, especially when you aren’t there and they are climbing on your leather furniture. True, your pet is part of your family, but your leather furniture is a part of your home.

Pets have claws, which means your leather furniture could be at risk. Jewelry, keys and other sharp items can also scratch finished leather. But don’t worry; your leather items can be restored to their original high-quality, comfortable look with leather conditioner for furniture. Leather conditioner can be used to recondition the area that your pet has scratched on your couch or chairs, making the marks less noticeable. It will also serve to restore any lost moisture and camouflage the existing marks. Leather conditioner for furniture also serves to boost the durability of your furniture. It’s possible that in the future, you may not even need to ban your pets from their favorite sofas or recliners.

You will want to be careful as you go, though, and should always test the leather conditioner on a small, discreet area of your furniture. Sometimes leather conditioners will cause darkening in the leather, so make sure you allow your test area to dry fully before moving forward. Often, the original color will return over time.

It’s important that your furniture looks good and comfortable. Leather cleaner and leather conditioner for furniture that has marks or pet scratches on it is a good way to ensure that your furniture has the appearance you want. Leather conditioner can also breathe new life into the furniture that your pet has already tried to make its own. Using leather conditioner for furniture with scratches also means you’re saving money on a potential restoration or reupholstering. With leather conditioner, put on a few coats and then let your furniture dry. Scratches from your dogs or cats, cracks, and fading become less noticeable and may even disappear completely.

How To Use Leather Care Products On Sports Equipment

If you have leather sports equipment such as a football or a baseball glove, you want the item to last a long time. To make sure your leather sports equipment stays in good shape for many years, you must care for it properly. Here are a few tips to help you care for your leather sports equipment.

Clean Regularly

Sports equipment spends a lot of time outdoors and in the dirt — it’s no wonder it gets dirty so quickly. If you have a leather baseball glove, you won’t have to clean it every time you use it, but if you want it to last you more than one season, make sure you give it a cleaning regularly. In order to make the glove look and feel like new, there’s nothing better than Leather Honey Leather Cleaner. First, brush the dirt off the glove. Dilute the Leather Honey Leather Cleaner in water as directed on the bottle, rub into the leather and let the glove dry completely. Make sure you clean up the entire glove, including the small cracks and crevices. Don’t oversaturate the leather; you can always apply more if needed.

Condition the Leather

After cleaning and allowing the leather to dry, follow up with Leather Honey Leather Conditioner, which will protect your sports equipment and help the leather remain supple over the years. Test the Leather Honey in a small area before applying it all over the item — and don’t forget, a little goes a long way! Use a lint-free cloth, brush, or even your hands, and apply at or above room temperature. Wait at least two hours for the Leather Honey Leather Conditioner to absorb, then wipe off any excess.

Store Equipment Properly

When you are not using your leather sports equipment, you should store it in a clean, cool, dry place. Make sure the room is not too hot, and don’t leave your items outside in the sun. You will want to make sure the items stay dry and can naturally absorb air, so it’s best not to keep them cooped up in bags.

Caring for your leather sports equipment is important if you want it to last. Once you find a glove you really love, use Leather Honey Leather Cleaner and Leather Honey Leather Conditioner for baseball gloves on it once a season or more, and it will stick around much longer.
