So you’ve purchased your Bullstrap gear… congratulations! But now, you're probably wondering, “what’s the best way to keep my leather accessories in great condition?” Don’t stress. We’ve got you covered with a few simple things to keep your Bullstrap leather accessories looking as they should: top-notch, that is.
There are several reasons to choose leather when it comes to your accessories: a leather Apple Watch band is timeless, leather wallets are tough, and a leather iPhone case is not only practical but looks good too. Aside from the aesthetic, leather is a great choice for the following reasons:
If you love the texture and look of leather as much as we do, you’ll want to preserve it. Taking care of leather watch bands, leather wallets, and even your leather iPhone case are all going to be fairly similar processes; start by weatherproofing the leather, then frequently clean and condition your leather to keep it looking great and functioning even better.
Spot clean your leather regularly with a clean bristle brush or a lint-free cloth. If needed, add a bit of leather cleaner to your cloth and work in circular motions as you clean your leather accessories. Remember, with Bullstrap accessories, you won’t need too much cleaner – just a small dollop or spritz is enough for our leather Apple Watch bands and iPhone cases.
The Chemical Guys’ Leather Cleaner & Conditioner Kit is well rated on Amazon:
Because leather is a hide, it is porous by nature, which means it can absorb liquids leading to stains if not treated properly. Consider waterproofing your leather accessories to help avoid liquid stains. Most leather waterproofing comes as a spray; be sure to only spray the leather portions of your accessories, and keep a good distance from them as you evenly coat them in a light spray.
You want your leather soft to the touch, right? Just like your skin or hair, you’ll wanna keep your leather smooth, soft, and crack-free by applying a conditioner after cleaning. Once the leather has been cleaned and is completely dry, use a lint-free cloth to apply conditioner with circular motions.
Again, many of the Bullstrap leather accessories won’t take much conditioner, and you’ll want to use small circular motions when applying. For our larger items, like leather backpacks, you can increase the size of the circular motions and apply more conditioner to your cloth as needed.
Aside from caring for your leather accessories, there are a few things you’ll want to avoid when it comes to your Bullstrap leather products:
