Storing Your Leather or Suede

The best place to store your leather is a dark closet that is neither too humid or too dry. Do not store suede or leather in plastic. If they are stored in plastic, in a warm environment, water can condense inside the plastic and mildew your leather. Once leather gets mildewed, it usually can be saved, with a lot more work. This can also make the buttons, chains, etc. rust. Always hang leather garments on wide or padded hangers to maintain the jackets shape. After you pull your leathers out of the closet, feel the skin. If it feels dry, it probably needs conditioned by Accent On Leather. Allow wet or damp leather to air-dry naturally away from any heat source.

Conditioning Leather or Suede

How many times a year should you condition your leathers?

If you ride a lot in hot sunny conditions, or get caught in the rain, you will need to condition it several times during the season. You can usually tell when your jacket or chaps feel dry. Incidentally, rain will really dry out leathers because when the rain evaporates from the jacket, it pulls moisture away from the skin
