Now that you have purchased your cork leather product (or perhaps you’re still mulling it over, in which case, have a look at our super sustainable range of cork leather wallets), you are wondering how to take care of them. Worry not — cork leather is exceptionally easy to take care of. Besides, cork is water-proof and antimicrobial, which means your cork leather wallets are naturally resistant to dirt, dust and stains of all kinds. But if you ever feel the need to go the extra mile to take care of your wallets, we’ve got your back!
Here’s how you can keep your cork leather wallets feeling brand new:
When you feel like your wallet could use some cleaning, simply use a soft cloth and water. Dampen your cloth with warm water, and add a drop or two of mild soap if you think it’s necessary, and you’re ready! Gently scrub your wallet in circular motions.
Once you’re done, wipe away the excess soap from your wallet with a clean cloth. If it feels slightly damp, simply let it air dry.
Cork leather products, unlike most other leather, do not need any conditioning, so the occasional clean-up will do just fine!
If there are any spills on your cork leather wallet, try to wipe it clean right away to prevent any staining. In case a stain sets in, use a soft-bristled brush (such as a spare toothbrush or a make-up brush) and scrub it out gently with soap and water.
Here are some things to avoid while taking care of your cork leather products:
So, there you have it, folks! Easy as that.
