Caring for your Leather Briefcase:
Things You Will Need:
-Soft Cotton Cloth / Pad
1. Make sure to handle your leather briefcase with clean hands. It’s a given here, but just remember to do that.
Apply a cleaner especially made for leather. Use a circular motion with a slightly damp cloth so not to clog the pores of the leather and spread out the cleaner. Use this technique on the bag about two times a year.
This will get out the dirt, the grime, and oils from soiled leather. Please allow cleaned leather to dry completely before applying conditioner
2. Here is the kicker. And where the bag needs you. Think of those spas with folks sitting out with those cucumbers on their yes. We have to moisturize your bag with a leather conditioner like your skin.
While there are various types of conditioner, the important elements of all conditioners is that they are getting into the deep fibres of the leather and keeping it from drying out. Re-invigorating the leather grain and fibres. All that stuff.
Tip: Always consider testing an area before you go after the entire bag. It is always easier to test, and apply once you are happy with that areas results.
