Q. How can I remove the ink from a pen on my wallet?

A. You can erase it with an eraser!

When pen ink gets on the leather, the ink has entered the leather fibers. An eraser is great for erasing this. Be sure to prepare a clean eraser. Use the corners to lightly press against the dirt and rub. Don't forget to put a cloth underneath to prevent the wallet itself from moving and scratching the back.

Q. My wallet is scratched and stands out ... What can I do?

A. The last resort is to use shoe polish!

Dark leather accessories are quite noticeable when scratched. Scratches can be part of the charm, but you can use shoe polish to minimize the appearance. After wiping the surface clean, apply shoe polish in the opposite direction of the scratch. You can hide the scratches by wiping it again at the end. However, shoe polish may adhere to your clothes, and it may forcefully smear the scratches, so use it as a last resort.

Q. I spilled food on leather wear! What should I do??

A. Use something water-absorbent and tap on it.

When you spill your drink or food on your leather wear, rubbing it can cause stains. The point is to use something with high water absorption, such as a towel or tissue, to beat it off as if pressing on the soil.

Q. What should I be careful about when cleaning exotic leather?

A. Brush and use cream along the scales.

It is a rule of thumb to follow the scales when brushing for daily care and applying moisturizing cream. It would be a mess if the scales, which are the charm of exotic leather, are rubbed and damaged. Also, when applying the cream, be careful not to let the cream get in between the scales and harden.

Q. What is the most important point in nurturing leather wear?

A. “Wear it” as much as possible!

Not only can the shape of the garment be shaped by wearing it, but the moisture stored in the leather during storage can be removed by exposing it to the human body temperature or the outside air. Even in the off-season, it is ideal to put it on once every two weeks.

Q. How do I remove mold from the seams of leather gloves?

A. Use a toothbrush!

Mold is the biggest enemy for leather gloves. For tanned leather, wipe the mold off, and for buffed leather, use a brush. To get rid of stubborn mold that has gotten into the seams, scrape it off with a worn toothbrush. During long-term storage, drying it in the shade at least once during the rainy season is also important.

Q. How do I remove stubborn stains on leather gloves?

A. Wash with a neutral detergent while wearing it.

You normally don't want to put your leather gloves in water, but if you get stubborn stains that you can't get rid of, wash them with a mild detergent. Wash it while wearing the gloves, all the way between your fingers, just like you wash your hands.

Q. What should I do about the fluffing of the edge of a leather belt?

A. You can apply a transparent varnish.

The more frequently you use it, the more the edge begins to fluff up. As fluffing progresses, your clothes may get dirty, so you want to care for them properly. Commercially available transparent varnish is useful for cleaning such edges. Put a small amount of transparent varnish on a sponge wrapped in gauze, hold the belt vertically, and stroke the edge a couple of times.

Q. What is the best way to store your belt?

A. Hang and store one by one.

Many people may leave their belt on the floor of their closet after wearing it. However, be aware that the lifespan will vary greatly depending on how you store it. As shown in the picture, you can hang it on a hanger one by one and store it. Go ahead and try it!

Q. How do I remove stains on brushed material?

A. Brush according to the flow of the fibers.

Items made from brushed leather are popular, but the drawback is that dust and dirt easily adhere to them. If it gets dirty, brushing is the basic care, but be sure to carefully follow the flow of the fibers.
