  1. 1

    Use products designed specifically for Connolly Leather. Connolly Leather treatments utilise lanolin-based beeswax, which produces a creamy product for even applications. Products containing silicon or waxes might cause irreversible damage to leather.

  2. 2

    Wipe areas of leather that receive continuous contact with a damp microfiber cloth to remove oil residues, harmful chemicals from lotions or perfumes, and dirt. Do this twice a week.

  3. 3

    Use a soft-bristled toothbrush to loosen dust and dirt from cracks, crevices and seams prior to vacuuming.

  4. 4

    Vacuum Connolly Leather prior to cleaning to remove loose debris and dust that can lodge in the pores of the leather.

  5. 5

    Mix ¼ cup of Connolly Leather Cleaner with 3 cups of water in a small container. Wet a microfiber cloth with the cleaning solution and wring out excess liquid.

  6. 6

    Gently rub the microfiber cloth into the hide. Use a separate microfiber cloth moistened with only water to remove cleaner residue. Use a dry microfiber cloth to absorb remaining moisture and polish dry.

  7. 7

    Apply a thin, consistent layer of Connolly leather conditioner (Connolly Hide Food) with a dry microfiber cloth to entire leather. Allow conditioner to dry for at least eight hours and then polish with a dry microfiber cloth.

Tips and warnings

  • Always test an inconspicuous area before using new products on fine leather.
