Cleaning is an essential part of caring for your leather whether in your car, Yacht or your home. Not only does cleaning remove dirt and oil (which can, overtime, break down the leathers protective coating) but will also help to maintain the condition and moisture balance in the leather. This is important for keeping the leather supple and makes it less likely to absorb spillages.
