Maintenance after use
The soft leather is cleaned with saddle soap and a soft brush and or cloth. Then remove excess soap with a damp sponge. A too wet sponge creates foam between the seams and buckles so that the stitching can be released! Then lubricate the leather with white leather grease on the saddle and / or bridle. This leaves you ten minutes and then you spread it with a clean cloth. Ensure that the cloth does not fluff. Lanolin contains a lot of water in fat. Leather grease contains avocado oil, this is for the fluidity and beeswax for the shine. Use of oil for the maintenance of girth and hard leather parts of saddle and bridle is also possible. This works fine too.
Pay attention, do not use oil on the knees (knee wrinkle) and the seat (seat). Leather oil can discolor the soft leather, especially brown leather. Oil should also be used more often than leather grease because it attracts quickly. Please note, also buckle and nail under side-flap attachment well maintained with soap and grease, otherwise corrosion and discoloration of copper occurs.
We recommended Effax , these balm products keep discoloration of the leather.
