Do you want to take care of your leather items like shoes, boots, and purses in a natural way?


               Leather is a material that has been used since ancient times for clothes, pouches and other useful items and products. Aside from the fact that leather looks good, it is also very tough and durable. However, leather is in fact skin. Without proper care, leather can dry, crack, stain, and look worse for wear over time. 

HOW TO TAKE CARE OF LEATHER

1. Leather needs proper ventilation. Just like skin, leather needs to breathe to prevent mildew and rotting. When leather is all sealed up, the air cannot pass through the leather and the moisture will not evaporate naturally. Don’t store leather in plastic grocery bags. Use the storage bag the item came with or breathable fabric like pillowcases. 

2. Do not expose leather to direct sunlight and heat. Just like skin and other fabrics, leather shrinks and dries out when exposed to heat right after getting wet. When your leather gets wet, do not throw it in front of the heater and do not use a hairdryer to dry it. Let the leather dry naturally. Keep the leather out of direct sunlight because the sunlight can speed up the fading of the leather. This can also cause drying and cracking. 

3. When using treatments like polish or conditioner, always test a small area first. Let it dry for 24 hours and see what happens. Some products can change the color of the leather. If a brand or color does not have bad effects, you can use it repeatedly without testing again.

4. Choose natural or neutral colors when using polishes and creams. Most products have added dyes of black or brown that are supposed to liven up the faded color in a leather product. Black is generally fine but brown has too many shades. Stick with neutral colors like white or gray to prevent unnecessarily changing the hue of your leather. 

5. Clean your jackets, shoes, bags and other leather items regularly with a damp cloth. When dirt, dust and other abrasive particles accumulate on leather, it leads to premature wear and tear. You can preserve your leather by wiping them down weekly with a wet cloth. 

6. Condition leather every 3 to 6 months or more frequently if you live in a dry climate. Leather conditioner is like a cream moisturizer. It protects the leather from drying out and cracking. Leather conditioner is like lotion or oil and is gently rubbed into the leather. Similar to skin and moisturizers, leather soaks up the conditioner. 

AVOCADO OIL AS LEATHER CONDITIONER

               Avocado oil is full of monosaturated fats. It is also an excellent source of antioxidants such as vitamin E. Avocado oil has many uses inside and outside the kitchen because of its moisturizing and conditioning properties. 


               Avocado oil is a great leather conditioner. It can be used for any leather item such as shoes, boots, belts, wallets, purse, and furniture. 

DIRECTIONS

1. Clean the leather item with a damp cloth to get rid of dust and dirt. 

2. Once the item is clean, pour a small amount of avocado oil onto a soft cloth.

3. Rub the oil into the leather using circular motions. 

4. Wipe away any excess oil.


               Take good care of your leather items so that they will always look good and they will last longer.
