Care And Treatment Of Your Leather – Leather Belts

Posted by Simon Harrison on Monday, June 16, 2014 Under: Repairs
The treatment and conditioning of your new Handmade Leather Belt fromOakside is slightly different from my saddlery products. Most belts do not have to put up with the abuse that a dog collar is subjected to. And, although my belts are made from the same Bridle Leather and in the same way, the preconditioning should be carried out in a slightly different manner.

If you are feeling brave, and you don’t mind the smell of oil then go ahead and carry out the oiling mentioned in a previous post. If on the other hand you are concerned about getting oil on your clothes then use this method.

I recommend the use of Renapur to condition your leather belt. Renapur Leather balsam contains natural ingredients including beeswax and jojoba oil, and it is pH neutral. It is not smelly, nor is it sticky, and it will not rub off on to your clothes, quite important for a belt!

Use the Renapur Leather Balsam on both sides of your Handmade Leather Belt(the Grain and Flesh sides) and apply the Renapur, using the application sponge, sparingly. Once it has all been absorbed you will notice how much softer the leather has become. Renapur has other advantages to as it helps to waterproof the leather extending its life and protecting it from the hazards of everyday life.
