Luxury leather accessories are a great way to look unique. Once you buy them you can be sure that your investment will last for years to come and still remain fashionable. Luxury leather is a tough material and needs little care but you have to take care of it from time to time. Whether it is your wallet, your ring holder or your jewelry holder, there are certain things that you can do to keep your accessories looking great and to give them a long, long life.
The first thing that you should do is clean your accessories from time to time. They collect dirt and grime and the dirtier they get the older they look. You should get rid of this dirt by using a special leather cleaner – they are available in the supermarket. If you accessories have any metal parts you should make sure that you get a cleaner that will not corrode them. After you clean, let them dry and then every few days, wipe your accessories with a clean cloth.
Conditioning your luxury leather accessories is also important. Think of it as introducing moisture back into the leather. Over time, leather dries and if it becomes too dry then it may begin to crack. You don’t have to buy and special products for this. Your conditioner is enough. Use just a dollop, rub it over your palms and then rub them all over the item. Leave it on for 10 minutes and then wipe the accessory down with a clean cloth. Let it dry. If you do this at least once a month you will keep your luxury leather looking good for years to come.
Some people are under the impression that leather is waterproof; this is not true. Your leather jewelry boxes items will absorb water if they are left in it. That is why you need to make them waterproof. This is a process that happens over time. The best thing to use is beeswax cream. There are different kinds so choose whatever you like best. Be warned though; some leather colors react with beeswax so it is best to test it on the corner of the item before you apply it all over. There are also spray protectants that are much more convenient and can be used on other kinds of leather as well.
Lastly, is water gets on your luxury leather items you should let it dry at room temperature. If you use directs heat, like a hair dryer, it dries out the leather and it may start to crack.
