Leather care products
There are a huge range of products available for the care of your leather products, but you should be careful to ensure that you buy the correct product for the type of leather you have. If you need help on this, visit our care section.
Typical leather care products include cleaning solutions, cleaning kits, conditioners, polishes and colour touch-up kits for concealing scratches and scuffs. Some companies also have specialised products for removing ink or grease, or for restoring the smell of new leather. You are advised to test any care product in an inconspicuous area first and only use products which are intended for the type of leather in question.
Specialised leather care products are formulated to clean and protect without damaging the finish. A leather protector is also available to protect leather from colour staining. Avoid using household cleaning products, solvents, or cleaners intended for materials other than leather as they are liable to damage the finish.
Before selecting a care product you should determine what type of leather you are dealing with, for example, aniline or semi-aniline, pigmented, nubuck or suede. See how to tell for advice.
