WINTER TIP !
Winter can be especially hard on leather. Extra moisture and extreme fluctuation in temperatures can cause leather to crack. Even when your leather gets a chance to dry (like in a heated tack room) mildew can become a concern. To combat this, make sure to wipe down your leather with a clean, damp cloth. Then follow up with Effax — the Leather Cream Soap is a great one-step that can be used without water to gently clean and rehydrate leather and the Leder Combi+ cleans while adding a mildew preventative!
And don’t forget that salt is leather enemy #1 ! Add salt from wintery roads and sidewalks and it’s more than the natural salts from sweat. Be sure to wipe away residual sweat (and slush!) to make sure your leather lives to see the spring thaw!
