When cleaning leather, it is recommended selecting a cleaning agent especially designed to clean leather stains. Even after finding the right cleaning agent to clean your leather goods, a “spot test” is necessary.
A “spot test” involves selecting an inconspicuous area of your leather goods to be cleaned, and placing on it a small amount of the cleaning agent. Then following the manufacturer's instructions, the leather is examined to determine how it has reacted to the product. In this way, it is possible to see what effect the cleaning agent will have, before applying it to your leather goods.
