How To Clean And Protect Nubuck Leather

Please note that while Leather Honey Leather Conditioner is NOT for use on suede, it works beautifully to condition Nubuck. It goes without saying that cleaning your leather and conditioning it go hand in hand.

This is an excellent video showing how to care for leather and suede jackets. Wayne Edelman educates Martha Stewart on the difference between painted leather and aniline and how to clean both. The difference? Dye is impregnated inside of the leather to create aniline leather and painted leather is leather that is painted a certain color. A simple test to figure out if your leather is aniline or painted is to take a cotton swab with mineral spirits and rub it on a small area of your leather item. If paint comes off on the swab, your leather is painted. In cleaning the leather, Wayne’s trick is to simply use baby wipes to get the initial job done. See the video below for more.
This video shows how to clean a leather jacket using warm water and soap. This is the advice we give to our customers and anyone who asks us how to clean leather, and it’s a method we’ve been using on our own leather – be it jackets, boots, or our horse harness – for over 30 years. We like to use Murphy’s Oil Soap, water and a little bit of elbow grease. Another great bit of advice the video gives is something we’d like to assume most people know, but you can never be too sure: Don’t put your leather items, including jackets, in the washing machine.
