Taking Care Of Your Leather Products

Posted by Administrator on 6/26/2011 to Leather Care
All Tom Barrington leather products are manufactured using the finest quality leathers.  However, because they are made of genuine leather, here are some special tips and helpful information we recommend to help you take care of your Tom Barrington product so that it maintains it's rich luxury look and feel.

1.  Do not leave your Tom Barrington leather product in direct sunlight for long periods of time.  This doesn't mean you can't go outside with your leather case, but you should avoid leaving it lying on the dashboard of your car or other places where sunlight, or direct heat will directly shine on the case for long periods of time.

2.  If you get your Tom Barrington leather product wet, gently wipe off excess water with a soft absorbant dry cloth and let the case dry naturally.  Do not put the case in direct sunlight or heat it unnaturally (this means no microwave ovens, no baking ovens, no space heaters and no clothes dryers or any other machine or device that generates heat ) to speed up the drying process.

3.  Never use any chemicals, alcohol, or solvents to clean your Tom Barrington leather products unless they are specifically made for cleaning leather.  Do not use detergents or saddle soaps to clean your Tom Barrington product as it remove some of the natural properties of the leather and may cause permanent damage.

4.  If your case gets slightly scuffed, gently use a pencil eraser to remove the scuff marks.  This may not remove 100% of the scuff marks but it should help considerably in making them less noticeable.

5.  If you get food or dirt stains on your Tom Barrington leather product, use a lightly dampened cloth dampened with clean water and clean the dirty area... it may look darker at first due to the moisture, but color will return after the leather dries.

6.  If you want to store your Tom Barrington leather product for a period of time, wrap it in a paper tissue or a soft cloth or put it back in the original product bag that came with the case.  Do not seal it in a plastic bag as this will cause the leather to dry out and it could become brittle or crack.   Do not store leather cases with other leather cases without individually wrapping them first as some leathers may stick together if they come in contact for long periods of time.

7.  If you own one of our snap on cases, please do not use any sharp objects to pry them off your phone.  This will very likely scar or even tear the leather used in making your leather case. Our snap on cases are designed for a snug protective fit to your phone but can still be removed with your hands.
