A Few Tips to Care for Your Leather Wallet

Here is a list of tips you must remember once you get yourself a leather wallet. These tips are essential to increase its longevity and maintain its quality, so do not avoid them in any circumstances.

Avoid Any Contact with Moisture

Never wash your wallet in the laundry or use it with wet hands. During rainy days, make sure you take precautions to keep it dry. If, by chance, the wallet gets wet, soak the water with a soft clean towel and let it air dry. Never iron it or use a dryer, as it will lead to breakage.

Never Sit Over a Wallet

Wallet in the back pocket

The most common mistake that every man makes is that they sit with their wallet on their back. It is okay if you are walking while keeping your wallet in the back pocket but ensure to take it out when you sit. Sitting on a wallet will put pressure on the leather and the stitchings of the wallet, which will ultimately tear or damage it.

Keep It Away from Heat

Never keep your wallet in direct sunlight or any heat. Leather is a soft material that can dry up if kept near heat for a long time. If the wallet gets dried up, it will soon crack, get scratched, and ultimately be damaged. Always try to store it in a cool and dark place, such as a drawer, when not in use.

Prevent Getting Close to Abrasive Objects

You need to take care of the leather as if it is glass. Always use a microfiber cloth to clean the exterior of the wallet. Never keep your leather wallet with keys or rough objects, as they can put scratch marks on the leather.

Do Not Overstuff It

It is good to have a lot of cash with you, but make sure you do not overstuff the wallet with unnecessary things. It will lead to stretching of the leather and damage it. Also, overstuffing will change the wallet’s shape and make it look bulky. Keep decluttering it from time to time. So, if you want to have a sleek and flat wallet, don’t overstuff it!

Try Using a Leather Cleaner

Often use dry paper towels to wipe away the dirt and use a leather cleaner at least once in 3-4 months for deep cleaning. Ensure that you use something which is chemical free and safe on leather. Never put oil, polish, or wax to clean it, as it will damage the leather.

Get a Wallet Cover

If you want to take some extra care for your leather wallet, you can buy a wallet cover to store it nicely, when not in use. This will add a protective layer to the wallet and keep all the dirt, moisture, and heat away from it.

How to Deep Clean Your Leather Wallet the Right Way?

Regular dusting is alright, but your leather wallet needs a deep cleansing at least twice a year, if not more. To deep clean your leather wallet, follow these steps properly.

Empty wallet before start cleaning it
  • Firstly, empty the inside of the wallet. Take out all the cash, cards, and other belongings.
  • Use a straw to blow out the dust from the small corners and gently shake the wallet upside down to remove any extra dirt from the interior.
  • Now, take a microfiber cloth to clean away the dust from the exterior.
  • Then, apply a leather cleaner and rub it using a soft towel in circular motions. To clean the inside and corners, take the help of a cotton swab.
  • Now, use a slightly dampened cloth to clean out everything.
  • Next, apply some leather conditioner to moisturize it. Rub it gently all over the wallet and again, rinse it off with a soft cloth.
  • Lastly, let it air dry overnight, and your leather wallet will look like a new one again!

How to Remove Any Stain from Your Leather Wallet?

If, accidentally, you have stained your expensive leather wallet, do not panic. Act as quickly as possible because you do not want that stain to dry up on the wallet. Take a cotton swab and dip it in a leather cleaner or a saddle soap. Now, gently rub the cotton swab over the stain in circular motions until all the stain gets removed. Lastly, wipe it out with a microfiber cloth, and you are done!

A leather wallet is known to be long-lasting, but it needs that care to maintain the same shine and quality as a new one. So, make sure you follow the points mentioned in the article and increase its lifespan!
