leather care

A Tidbit for Tuesday, from Awl Made Here:

Take Care O’ Yer Leather and it will take care of you!

It is soooo important to periodically clean/condition your leather! If you want your leather to last and last, do this, please. Good products are mink oil & saddle soap. Try a test spot first, as these products may darken or discolor your leather. (Note: these are not meant to be used on suede). Follow the product directions as advised.
And: Some leathers will surface scratch more than others. No need for alarm, this is normal. Usually a good buffing (rub in circular motions with a clean, dry rag) will do the trick.

If you absolutely refuse to do this (too messy, or you just don’t have the time (or interest)), bring your leather to me and I will give it the TLC it needs…
