How should I clean my leather products?

To protect, clean and condition leather, use saddle soap, except on patent leathers. Saddle soap provides just the right amount of moisture required to preserve leather goods. Before using saddle soap, take a lightly moist cloth and clean your leather product. After it dries, dab a little amount of saddle soap on your product and rub it around the leather. Make clockwise rubbing motions on the leather until it is dry. Repeat until you have cleaned the entire leather surface. Use a clean cloth to wipe off any excess residue. It is important to clean leather on a regular basis. Use saddle soap every few months. It will help protect your leather, keep it moist and looking beautiful. Avoid cleaning your leather pieces too often. Over cleaning leather can damage the leather. It can cause leather to be too moist, creating mildew and damage the leather item.  

How should I clean my jewelry pieces?

When caring for your jewelry pieces read jewelry care guidelines.
