Leather bags for men can be a prized possession, your pride and joy. In order to get the best from these high-quality accessories for a long time, it is important to maintain them effectively. Proper care and cleaning must become a part of a regular routine. Both well-worn and brand-new briefcase is subject to damage from moisture, oxidation, abrasions, and chemical damage. All you need to use are leather conditioner, water and soft cloth for proper cleaning. This way, you will maintain its fantastic appearance for a long time while protecting the pliable texture and soft grains as well.

All about routine care

Based upon how frequently or roughly you use your briefcase, will depend its maintenance and care. Even when you are extremely careful with this accessory, don't forget to clean at least 1-2 times on a yearly basis for best results. Your leather cleaner shouldn't leave behind any greasy residues so for best results you should use only manufacturer recommended products. If you do not have a solution to use simply, take a damp cloth for cleaning and allow it to dry naturally. In case stained areas are present, wipe them away carefully. For mildew removal, you can make a solution with equal parts rubbing alcohol and water. Now use sparingly with soft cloth. Soapy mild water is also good in this regard and you should follow this with proper rinsing and drying your leather briefcases.

Use of commercial conditioners keeps the leather supple and soft. Use a lint free extremely soft cloth to rub this well. After this, clean with water for treating leather. Last step involves the application of solution that acts as moisture barrier available at the leather store. This will work as the final step in cleaning as well as preserving the briefcase. Let it dry naturally before keeping it away for next use.

Cleaning the briefcase interiors

The interior linings of the briefcase can be of various types with soft-sided ones containing separations and clothes lining. The linings are generally present in hard-sided briefcases. When you are taking so much care for cleaning and maintaining the bag exteriors it is important to extend this upkeep to the interior compartments as well. First, you should ensure that nothing is present inside so empty out its contents. It's important that you remove even small debris that may still linger. Use a damp cloth for wiping the interiors but do not let any moisture remain, otherwise they may lead to the development of mildew. Wipe it with dry cloth and let it be for the time being until no trace of moisture remains. Cleaning the briefcase is also a great way to organize the bag contents and discard things that you do not require any more. This way you will extend the life of this beautiful accessory and will continue to give you many years of pleasure.
