Caring for leather backpack

As a rule, a good leather bag is not very cheap. This is connected with the material from which it is made and complexity of manufacture. Any leather product requires some attention to itself, to keep the perfect appearance for years to come.

Leather backpack is not an exception. It also requires care. I agree that it is not very nice to see on the product scratches, smudges, dull color and other troubles.
Of course, the backpacks are made of different skins, so caring for them will be a little different. But there are general rules that are suited to any skin type.

The first and most common problem - the rain. Backpack on your back completely from it is not protected. In principle, the skin is not afraid of water, but large amounts of it does not. Better, of course, be prepared in advance and treat water-repellent backpack. She sold in many supermarkets and is not very expensive. The quality they are also different, as well as any product. However, it will protect the backpack in the rain.

If it really happened that your backpack is still strongly gets wet, then came into the room, it should be wet cloth and soak up the excess water. Then leave to dry. In no case do not dry the leather of the battery! They are permanently deformed. Let it dry naturally.
Avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight. That is, do not leave the bag on the windowsill at work. This will lead to fading of paint and discolor.

How can I get rid of dirt and stains?
There are totally normal and uncomplicated way. Mixed water, soapy water and ammonia, and the treated surface. If the dirt is not very strong, you can do a soap solution. Also, it is possible to use an ordinary ethyl alcohol, diluted with a little water. Further more details visit this page:

Apply alcohol on a cotton ball and wipe the desired area. Do not rub too hard, do not rub or scrape. At high intensity, you just erase the front layer. After the dirt has been removed, the surface to be treated. The simplest means - glycerin or petrolatum. Skin loves fatty oils, they increase its service life due to moisture.

Leather as a material, in fact, very unpretentious. Therefore, the leather backpack would not require for a permanent care. But if you follow the above rules, it will serve you for dozens of years, then it will pass by inheritance to their children.
