You’ve invested in a new pair of leather sandals because of their gorgeous aesthetic and quality, but how do you care for them so they always look this good?
Here are a few tips to keep your leather sandals looking as beautiful as when you purchased them:
- Dirt free is the way to be. Your sandals will be with you on your daily adventures, so you will need to regularly wipe off the dust and dirt that will accumulate with a soft dry cloth. When that isn’t quite enough to get rid of the dirt you can purchase a leather cleaning or conditioning product.
- Like oil and water, remember that water and leather do not play well together. To avoid damaging your sandals it's best to choose different footwear for water activities. If your sandals do get wet, set them aside and let them thoroughly dry before wearing them again.
- Keep them super fresh. As with all footwear sometimes we deal with odors from use or water exposure, to help alleviate this, sprinkle the inner sole with a little baking soda and let them sit overnight. In the morning, shake them off, and use a soft cloth to remove any excess.
The beautiful thing about quality leather products is that they will change slightly in color and texture over time, adding your unique fingerprint to your product.
