Here are some tips on how to restore exotic leather products to their former glory.
Do's and Don'ts for croc leather care
During the latter stages of the tanning process oils are used to make the leather soft and pliable. During normal usage and over time these oils are gradually reduced and should be restored to maintain the durability and esthetic qualities of the product. It is important to clean the skin before applying a conditioning product. A soft and very slightly damp cloth to remove any surface dirt is all that is required. Failure to clean the skin first will lock dirt in and over time make it appear dull.
When properly cared for crocodile leather products will last a generation or more.
