How to keep leather in optimum condition, be it your car, furniture, or a handbag?

  • Clean leather regularly with a suitable leather cleaner.
  • Apply leather conditioner every 3-6 months or more for harder used leather.
  • Where possible, avoid exposing leather to direct sunlight and heat.
  • Use a leather protector to prevent water and stains from penetrating the surface.

What does a leather conditioner do?

  • A leather conditioner helps to restore the natural oils in leather, that are lost due to contamination, UV damage or general wear and tear. Prevent the leather drying, so it won’t crack, and the oils prevent the overall faded look.

How often should leather be conditioned?

  • Leather should be conditioned every 3-6 months. For harder worn leather such as a driver's seat or sofa, it may be advised to increase this to every 1-2 months to ensure the leather is in premium condition.

What is the cheapest way to condition leather?

  • Leather conditions and protectors aren’t expensive when you consider how many applications you can typically obtain from a bottle. It is much more expensive to have the leather repaired in the long run or even replace a seat, steering wheel or sofa. A 500ml bottle of good conditioner could last you well over a year, even with regular maintenance.

Can you use Vaseline on leather?

  • Vaseline should not be used on leather as it will clog the pores. It will also leave you with a high gloss finish which will attract more dirt and accelerate the degradation of the top coat.
