Find the Right Cleaner

When cleaning your leather wallet, it’s important to use the correct cleaner. Regular soap and water can cause discoloration and damage, so it’s important to find a gentle cleaner with natural ingredients like beeswax or plant-based oils.

Use a Soft Cloth

When you’re ready to clean, use a soft cloth or brush to gently buff away any dirt or grime. Make sure the cloth is dry and free of any lint or fibers that can scratch the leather.

Keep it Dry

To keep your leather wallet looking its best, keep it away from moisture. The leather can become brittle and cracked if exposed to too much water. If you do get your wallet wet, be sure to dry it off immediately. Make sure to also give your wallet some time to air-dry!

Store Your Wallet Properly

Leather wallets should always be stored in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Sunlight can cause the leather to fade and crack over time. It’s also important to make sure the wallet isn’t stored near any heat sources, as this can cause the leather to become brittle and dry.
