How to clean a leather wallet


Tell the truth, when was the last time you cleaned your wallet?

I probably already know the answer…in fact, it rarely occurs to us that we need to clean our wallet, as we consider it as an accessory and not a garment we have to wear to go out with friends.

Yet, even the wallet needs thorough cleaning because using it daily can lurk inside germs and bacteria, but also traces of dirt, which can be harmful to our health anyway.

So, if you, too, frequently use your wallet and have never cleaned it, I suggest you continue reading this article because now I will explain specifically how to thoroughly clean a leather wallet.

But first, let me list what you need to perform such a cleaning task.

How to clean a leather wallet: what you need

In order to properly clean a leather wallet, it is essential to have the right necessities, as leather is an extremely delicate material, so it needs the right attention.

So, to be able to clean a leather wallet, you will need:

  • A soft microfiber cloth;
  •  Eraser bread;
  • A brush with stiff bristles;
  • Water and baking soda;
  • Cotton;
  •  Waterproofing spray for products made of leather;
  •  Cleansing milk.

And now that you have such materials, continue reading because I will now explain how to clean a leather wallet.

  1. Remove everything inside the wallet.
  2. Dampen a sponge with water and vinegar and clean the inside.
  3. Take the brush and clean the pockets to remove dust and dirt deposited over time.
  4. Take the bread eraser and clean the outside surface of the wallet.
  5. Pour a few drops of cleansing milk on a piece of cotton and go over the outside.
  6. Repeat this operation with clean cotton.
  7. Use the soft microfiber cloth and go over the inside and outside of the wallet.
  8. Apply a waterproofing spray to protect the leather of the wallet.

Finally, in order to sanitize your leather wallet, I recommend avoiding the use of overly aggressive products, which could also permanently damage the leather, or chemicals, and use a mixture of water and white vinegar by applying it with a soft microfiber cloth.
