2. Wipe your leather down regularly. Using a slightly damp cloth give your leather a wipe down on a regular basis. Avoid using soaps and detergents. A quick wipe once a week will save you from having to do a more extensive and difficult cleaning down the road.
3. Dry your leather slowly. No matter how many weather reports your read in the morning mother nature will surprise you with a downpour at some point. If your leather gets wet don't panic. Give your leather a gentle wipe with a soft cloth and let it dry slowly. Avoid using heat sources like direct sun or hairdryer to speed up the drying time. Dry your leather in room temperature by letting it sit. Drying leather quickly will change its chemical structure, causing it to become brittle and crack.
