how do you clean your apron 5 Tips
Tip 1: Damp Wet Cloth Works Magic

 Is your apron stained from cooking or grilling? No worries! Don't let the mess sit too long just wipe it down with a damp cloth. Just be careful not to oversaturate the cloth or you might end up with unsightly marks on the leather.

Tip 2: Use leather cleaner for Tough stains

Struggling to remove a stain? Just spray some leather cleaner on that spot of your leather apron and wipe away the dirt with a clean cloth. Notice a stain on the untreated back of the apron? Then softly brush the leather cleaner into the stain using a gentle circular motion. Finish by wiping with a clean cloth.

Tip 3: Coat the apron with leather grease from time to time

Following the tips above will help maintain the beauty of your apron. Want to keep your leather apron looking shiny and resistant to dirt for longer? Simply apply a generous coat of leather grease or white shoe polish to the front of your apron using a cloth every so often. Let the product absorb for 15 minutes, then wipe away any excess grease with a clean cloth.

Tip 4: Allow wet leather to air-dry thoroughly

Caught in a rainstorm while barbecuing? Make sure to let your apron dry completely to avoid mold growth. Keep your leather apron away from heat sources like heaters, hair dryers, and direct sunlight. If the leather dries too quickly, it could lead to small tears in the material,  which would be a shame!

Tip 5: Properly hang up your Leather Apron to store it

Got your leather apron looking fresh and clean? Don't stash it in a sealed plastic bag! Leather is a natural material that needs to breathe, so keep it in a closet where it has some airflow. Just make sure the closet isn't airtight.

  • Always use appropriate cleaning products designed specifically for leather, avoiding strong or unsuitable ones.
