Leather is one of those fabrics that everyone loves to touch. It's soft, it's shiny — there's really nothing to not like about leather. It also happens to be very durable, which makes it a great option for furniture, car interiors, handbags, shoes, and jackets — basically items that get knocked around and have a lot of use.
Although leather has a lot going for it, it does require proper maintenance to keep it looking good and functioning properly. Dirt and grime can build up on leather and you can’t just use water or any type of cleaner on it — tap water can damage leather, as can harsh cleaners. Both can also make the leather dry out, causing it to crack and peel. To keep leather clean and properly moisturized, you need to use a leather cleaner that's made just to treat this special fabric.
Here's a look at the top leather cleaners you can buy right now to keep your leather items in excellent shape.
