Leather clothing care instructions
This is how you take care of leather clothes
Leather and leather clothing have been associated with people’s lives and attire since the dawn of history. Leather clothing has always been valued for its material, durability and ease of care. In addition, the leather keeps the wind, but still it breathes.
Carefree nappa leather
With the development of leather finishing, finishing, dyeing and the way clothes are made, leather clothes have got a new look and are even more carefree. It has been said that the best treatment for a leather upper is a use that keeps the skin soft and supple. Stains can be wiped off the surface with a damp cloth or kitchen paper.
All leather clothing likes ventilation. Especially rain-cleaned, still moist air is good for leather clothes as well as human skin. If the leather garment has gotten wet through, it will be dried like a wool knit on a terry towel horizontally to prevent it from stretching. Friitala's WaterFree leather suits can withstand long-term rain.
When not in use, leather suits are best preserved in a loose space on a good, sturdy clothes hanger. Leather pants are hung from the legs to the men's pants hanger.
Mocha likes the treatment
The suede surface does not repel dirt as effectively as nappa leather. Therefore, it is a good idea to know a few home sticks to get rid of small stains that have been used. You can prepare for stains by purchasing a suede spray and suede or white eraser. Before use, the spray should be tested in an invisible area. Wet spray stains should be carefully rubbed with a white cloth or kitchen paper, for example. The substance should not soak the paint or leave a ring. A bit of a loose abrasive doll always comes out of the suede, which can stick to clothes, but leaves by brushing off.
Brush the suede surface
All suede leather suits pick up from brushing. Along with Friitala's suede clothing, the customer receives a foam sponge, which is electrified from the brushing movement and efficiently absorbs dust, dirt and loose abrasive dust from the new outfit. To protect the new suede suit, you can spray protective agents that make the suit dirt and moisture repellent. Especially the collar that easily absorbs make-up and skin oil, as well as the sleeves, pockets and leg openings should be protected. Grease stains should be removed as soon as possible even with a paper towel. If the stain does not come off completely, the point is further treated with suede spray. Very small grease stains may disappear by themselves into the moccasin. Lipstick stain is removed like grease stains. Mocha furs can be stored in an airy home closet over the summer on a sturdy, wide enough clothes hanger, protected from sunlight and toast.
Get rid of stains
If you have an accident with a curl on your suede, it is a good idea to press the moisture immediately onto a handkerchief or kitchen towel, but the dirt will only be brushed off when the garment is dry, so the sand will not damage the suede surface. Stains that are difficult to remove include e.g. paint, blood and ballpoint pen stains. They should be removed immediately, as they will adhere to the skin when dry. Labeled or other stickers should not be affixed to the leather surface. Nail polish remover and turpentine are not suitable as leather care products at all.
When the suede garment is in need of basic cleaning throughout, it is taken to a laundry that is competent to clean leather garments. Such basic cleaning is a greater burden on leather clothing than on textile clothing.
NOTE. All new napkins and suede skins may be loose in color. Avoid contact with light surfaces and the use of white / light clothing in combination with new suede / napkin leather until the leather is slightly worn and there is no risk of discolouration.
Care instructions for leather shoes
Dress up and undress the shoe properly.
Always use a shoehorn.Always use a shoehorn. The shoe should not be worn when placed on the foot, nor should it be removed from the foot by pulling with another shoe. Properly wearing the shoe and removing it from the foot with the help of a shoehorn prevents the shoe from wearing out, the heel from breaking and the sole from coming off.
Care and protect leather shoes.
Clean your shoes immediately after use. Cleaning extends the life of leather shoes. The edge area between the base and the cover should be thoroughly cleaned, for example with a used toothbrush. -When dirt gets in between, it makes the moisture feel good and the edge doesn't dry out. This can eventually lead to the base tearing or coming off prematurely.
Thread and protect. In a leather shoe, use a buckle every couple of weeks and a moisture barrier over the buckle. Use shoe-colored plank, at least black shoe for black shoe.
Do not use beeswax-based shoe polish on adhesive-based shoes: Grease may remove the entire sole.
Rest, drying and storage
There should be more pairs of shoes. This is when the shoes occasionally get to ventilate, rest and dry. If possible, the outer shoes can sometimes be removed at the workplace. The same shoes should not be worn on consecutive days. On days off, proper storage will further extend the life of your leather shoes. A typical mistake is that the shoes jerk in a shoe rack or hallway when folded at worst under other shoes. When folded, folds are pressed into the skin. It would be advisable to put resting pads inside the leather shoes when not in use. This would be important, especially in seasonal storage. –Lepolesti straightens the upper of the shoe and keeps it straight. If not used, the skin is more susceptible to cracking. Shoes should be allowed to dry between uses. Sufficient time (1 day) should be allowed for drying. –Leather shoes should not be left to dry next to the radiator, as this will cause the leather to dry too quickly. This exposes the skin to cracking. If the radiator is very hot, it can also burn the glues or leather of the shoes. Dry the leather shoe in an airy place away from heat sources.
If the soles and heels are worn, wear shoes with a shoemaker
