You set down your gorgeous leather handbag at the end of a long day and you see it: a stain on your khaki trench coat. Leather handbags, shoes, accessories and even leather furniture can leave unsightly dye stains on your clothing. These stains can be impossible to remove, especially from delicate fabrics like silk. Prevention is the best cure for these types of stains. It is easy to clean and seal your leather goods to prevent leather dyes from staining your clothes.
Select a small spot on the leather that is not easily visible to test your cleaner.
Apply a small amount of your leather-care products to your test spot.
Wait 24 hours before proceeding. If the leather becomes discolored, then select a different leather-care product.
Cleaning, Conditioning and Sealing
Wet a cotton cloth. Apply a small amount of leather cleaner to the cloth, and clean your leather well using a gentle circular motion. Focus on any stains or grease buildup.
Check your leather goods for signs of dryness or cracking. Apply a small amount of conditioner to a clean cloth, then apply conditioner to dry or cracking leather. Apply the conditioner using a circular motion.
Apply the sealant according to the manufacturer's instructions. After you have sprayed an even coating over the whole item, wipe off any excess.
Allow your leather goods to dry for 24 hours. Now, it's time to wear them with your favorite white outfit.
