It is almost inevitable that your leather jacket or shoes will be exposed to rains, puddles, or spills. Water strips leather of its natural oils, and when wet leather dries, you’ll often find that it has become dry and brittle. While rain can ruin leather, the following steps can help you treat water-damaged leather and preserve your valuable apparel.
No matter how careful you are, if you have pets and leather upholstery, you will get the occasional stain or bad odor. Even the best trained pet may get unexpectedly sick on your leather couch or decide to leave his mark on your favorite leather chair. Take them in the car and you have a recipe for pet stains on that valuable leather upholstery. Knowing how to protect your leather from pet stains and odors, and how to clean it when necessary, will help you get the most life out of those leather pieces.
There are several claims for leather cleaning and conditioning solutions that are simply untrue — yet they continue to spread either by word of mouth or through internet searches.
We at Leather Honey are experts on leather care and we’re here to tell you that many of these claims are not only incorrect (and admittedly a little amusing) but they also risk having a reverse effect and actually end up doing more harm to your leather than good!
If you own leather furniture, one of the most important things you can do to keep the furniture looking its best is to keep it clean. The cleaning methods used for other upholstery types could easily damage your leather. Instead, you need a natural leather cleaner that will gently clean the surface of the leather without introducing unwanted moisture or damaging the integrity of the leather.
Because it sits out in the heat and sun, then is exposed to the cold temperatures of winter, not to mention the fact that people are scrambling in and out of it every single day, your car’s upholstery takes a beating. If your car has leather upholstery, you’ll start to notice the effects of these facts after a few years of use. If your leather is starting to look worn and old, you can rejuvenate it with the help of Leather Honey.
Caring for your leather is important, but it is also possible to over-care for your leather if you add too much product to the material.
Someone who frequently cleans, polishes and then conditions their leather on a regular basis may be treading too closely to the over-caring line. Leather does not need to be polished on a regular basis if a good conditioner is being applied.
