How to use saddle washing soap:
1. Shake well. Test recipe first in a discreet area and allow to dry naturally in a cool, clean location away from sunlight and heat. If you do not find excess color rub off, discoloration in leather, or any other negative effect, it is safe to use on your leather.
2. Remove any excess dirt and debris on the surface of your leather with a damp cloth. Shake your Saddle Washing Soap bottle well and apply the recipe to a wet lint-free cloth, pad or soft brush. The recipe’s texture should change from creamy to a soapy, spuddy consistency. After this, gently massage it into the leather’s surface. Avoid using too much at one time; less is more, and you can always reapply more if you need. Do not apply any more than naturally absorbs at a time. Once the leather is dry, buff it off with a soft cloth or brush for added luster.
3. Allow the recipe to dry naturally. For best results, allow the recipe to set in overnight.
4. Use Saddle Washing Soap as often as you feel your leather needs it. It is usually best to clean your leather 2-3 times a year, or whenever it has become excessively dirty. How many times you need to clean it may depend upon the way it was made, the climate it’s in, and how much use it gets. Get to know your own unique leather, and find a cleaning routine that works best for both of you through experience.
