However, as leather jewelry (especially leather earrings) becomes more popular, we have recommended this product as an excellent solution for sealing and finishing the backs and edges of jewelry to provide a smooth finish and a higher-end appearance. That isn't to say the natural nap of the leather isn't wonderful! It just helps to seal in the look of the leather if you want to keep it looking new.
The best way to use this product is by hand. Start with a clean, dry leather item and apply a thin layer of Seamless Leather Finishing Oil to both the front and back sides of the leather. Let the oil sit for several hours or overnight before moving on to the next step.
When applying the oil to leather items that will be worn regularly, it's important to choose a quality product that won't wash out of the leather. We recommend using Leather Renewal Oil because it doesn't smell when applied and it keeps your leather feeling soft and supple. If you want to add some fragrance to your jewelry, use Essential Oils instead. They're natural and healthy, but if you have allergies or sensitivities to plants, you should probably avoid them unless you know they aren't going to cause any problems for you or your loved ones.
Leather items are easy to care for if you follow our instructions below. Use a soft cloth to remove any excess oil or dust that may collect during use.
Like a favorite pair of jeans, well-made leather lasts a long time and, unlike most man-made or synthetic materials, it improves with age, developing a depth of patina and wear pattern that is unique to the owner. As we explore for methods to reduce our consumption, leather fits in well with the attitude of "buy less, buy better." It is a quality product that is renewable and recyclable when discarded.
When you buy leather goods, you're not just buying a piece of clothing or a bag, you're investing in something durable that will last for years if taken care of properly. The best way to ensure that your leather items last as long as possible is by only buying what you need now and then cleaning and conditioning them so they remain usable for as long as possible. This also helps prevent unnecessary environmental destruction by reducing the demand for new products.
Another advantage of leather is its ability to withstand many conditions. Whether used for shoes, bags, or other accessories, it can survive in most environments because it's waterproof, dustproof, and even flame resistant. This makes leather a very useful material to have around when building things such as houses or cars since it can be used instead of plastic or other more fragile materials.
Leather has been used for thousands of years and remains popular today because of its durability and versatility. If you need something sturdy and long-lasting, consider using leather instead of another material that will break down over time.
Your leather's surface has a covering that requires attention. Yes, that was a redundant statement, but it had a purpose. This is because coatings are prone to abrasion, and microscopic grains of dirt are extremely abrasive. The first thing you should do with leather is maintain it clean and clear of dirt, debris, and dust. Use a soft brush or toothbrush to get into hard-to-reach places. If you have powdery residue on your leather, use a mild cleaner to remove it.
After you have cleaned your leather, let it dry completely before applying any other product. Leather dries very slowly so it needs time to release moisture and evaporate solvents.
If you want to restore gloss to old leather furniture, try using clear nail polish. Let it dry completely before exposing it to sunlight for an extended period of time.
Leather is a natural material that does require maintenance. It is important to keep it clean at all times so it doesn't smell like old books. If you don't care for your leather furniture, it will show its age faster. So, if you want your furniture to look new forever, be sure to care for it regularly.
