<blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">quote:<hr /><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Leather is a natural product and it is not an easy thing to clean ones it has become dirty.
Never use saddle soap, solvents, abrasives or caustic household cleaners such as soap or dish detergent. These vary widely in strength and in compatibility with today's water-based leather finishes, and may cause cracking or other damage to the leather surface.
If you do so consider using a special leather product afterward to restore its luster and replace the leatherís natural oil. Mostly you can buy these products in furniture or shoe stores.
You mostly have a cleaner and a conditioner. The conditioner is the most important product here. It works preventive. <hr /></blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">
