How to care for Leather

Care & Maintenance

Leather is resilient by nature and high performance Muirhead leather is even more so, due to our advanced manufacturing and finishing processes.

Muirhead leather should require little attention in normal circumstances and it is not essential to the life of the leather that it should be cleaned regularly. At the same time however, an accumulation of dirt and grease over a period of time is undesirable and can become more difficult to remove over time. Dirt and dust is abrasive and in extreme circumstances, can cause damage to the leather's protective finish. We therefore recommend light regular cleaning simply using a damp cloth and taking care not to soak the leather. Please do not use creams, waxes or polishes on your leather as these can cause damage.

Leather used specifically for heavier traffic may require a more thorough cleaning routine therefore we offer our specially formulated Leather Cleaning Wipes.
