How to use and preserve handbags, leather wallet properly

For products made from real leather, it is important to keep a durable, beautiful product, in addition to using it carefully, we need to know how to use and preserve accordingly. 

The outstanding feature of the leather is hygroscopic, which is easy to cause mold  and dry hard leather. If you know how to use, the real leather products will be more beautiful. Use leather goods, not just at a fashionable product, a high-end affirmative product; it is also a hobby, a passion like many other passions. Not everyone knows how to create beautiful things.

The first thing we need to keep in mind is do not put products made of genuine leather in damp places or close to the floor, whether the floor is lined with bricks or cemented or carpeted, the steam from The soil will still easily penetrate the leather and make the leather easier to mold, hard and fast broken. Especially in the rainy season, the amount of water in the air increases, making the leather highly hygroscopic and easily moldy. Therefore, you should limit the use of leather when it is wet or rainy or when people have too much sweat (while playing sports, exercise …).

If the leather was wet, do not bask sun or use a dryer to dry it, which will cause the leather to dry quickly, leading to a hardening of the leather and even leather cracking. Allow your leather to dry naturally in a well-ventilated place. Regularly soften leather goods at least once a month if use in areas with hot / humid weather.

When using moisturizers or polishes, pay attention to the color of the polish, the color must match the color of the leather product, because it will easily lose the natural leather color.
