We buy leather goods not only because we want to use it or wear it, but also because we think it’ll last for a long time. But it lasting for years requires us to take good care of it- and that means treating it like your own skin. Yep, creams and conditioners are not only for our hair and skin! I’ve been trying to look for leather care products for the longest time and I’m so happy I discovered Collonil. I recently just got obsessed with cleaning my leather bags/ shoes and it really makes a huge difference if your bag is clean- it looks brand new and awesome! Here are three easy steps on how you can take good care of your leather:
Step 1: Waterproof
This is the first and most important step for me because you get to protect your babies (yes, I call my bags and shoes babies) from stains. I like going out at night and chilling with my friends so it’ll definitely prevent my heels and even sneakers from any drink spills, rain, etc. What to use? Collonil Supreme Protect Spray. I highly recommend it.
Step 2: The 3 C’s: Care, Condition and Color
Remember: leather is skin. We need to take care of it so it’ll have a long, beautiful life. You probably don’t know this but leather is very sensitive to environmental factors like dirt, dust, harsh chemicals and even UV rays. Let’s maintain the quality by taking good care of it by moisturizing and conditioning it. And just like dying our hair, we also need to retouch and revitalize to renew its color so it’ll always look well polished.
Step 3: Cleaning
Lastly, our leather goods collect dust and dirt so we need to clean it and there are two methods: The Routine Cleaning (the dry method) and Deep Cleansing (the wet method). Try dry method is very simple, you just take away the surface dirt by using a brush or cloth. You can even use eraser blocks or these Collonil leather lotion and delicate cream so the material is treated gently. The wet method is harder but definitely worth it. Shampoo and other cleaners can be applied but with heavy stains, you might need delicate cream again. Remember, to avoid dirt, we have to follow the first and most important step- to waterproof.
Now your leather babies can be clean and well taken cared of all the time! To check out more of Collonil’s products, make sure to visit their website and click HERE.
