112 Leather Care
leather care: The smooth and shiny leather we use for most of our products, is very durable, cuddly but tough. Maybe it lives, because it breathes, it expands and it can store and emit humidity.
It deserves a bit care from time to time. At normal exposure clean and care it with leather fat 1-2 times a year. A few hours after fatting, polish the leather with a very soft rag. That's all.
Impregnating spray makes the leather water and dust repelling. Spray it equable, leave it dry and polish with a soft rag.
If you made really dirty things with your leather, you may wash it with handwarm hater and shampoo. Dry it fluffily hanging on an airy place, not nearby the heater, and grease afterwards.
Splashes of dust shall be removed like if they are on your naked skin: with warm water and a mild soap. Don't rub it too hard. Use a soft sponge and spot the leather more than you rub it. Use a soft rag afterwards.
Even for por persistent stains don't use solvents like turpentine, oxidants or benzene. Spots from protein may be removed only with handwarm water, if that fails, use cold carbonated water. Stains from fat could be removed with beaten white of egg supposedly. Spilled liqueur can be removed carefully with spirit.
