Quick Tips for Leather Care
Leather Tips to Remember
Leather is a skin: Leather has pores that need to breathe and fibers that require natural oils to survive. Sealed off leather cannot breathe and will rot from the inside out.
Dry weather ruins leather: Leather, like our own skin, dries out. Wind, sun, cleaning and dry air accelerate this loss of oil. Since the animal can no longer replace these lost oils, we must.
Color loss: Age, sunlight and wear will fade colored leather and darken bleached (light) leather. Proper oiling will prevent fading as it restores the original tanning colors.
Mold, mildew and bacteria: These are constantly growing when leather is warm and damp, breaking down fibers. Propolis is an anit-bacterial resin which guards against this damage.
Unsightly wear: Cracking, scuffing, dry rot and stitch tear can be avoided. Tests have proven that Obenauf's restores natural oils while reinforcing surface fibers against abrasion.
