  • Using a leather protectant.
  • Storing leather in a cool, dry place.
  • Using cleaning agents specific for leather goods.
  • Keeping wax based products away from leather.
  • Keeping the leather garment away from direct sunlight.
  • Using a conditioner to restore moisture to leather.
  • Keep hairsprays, deodorants, and perfumes away from leather.
  • Having your leather clothing professionally cleaned and serviced as needed.
