ant to keep your Nightingale-Studio product in prime condition?
Then we suggest taking note of the following tips.

 

  • Leather grease, such as beeswax, extends the life of the leather and keeps the leather soft and smooth. Apply the beeswax with a soft cloth or sponge. Leave it in for a couple of hours. Dry any excess leather grease away with a clean cloth. The treatment should be done at room temperature.
  • Never store your Nightingale-Studio product in plastic and avoid storage in general for any prolonged period of time.
  • Keep in mind: direct sunlight or heavy rain can lead to discoloration.
  • Did your item get wet?
    Then you’ll want to let it dry at room temperature.
    Avoid drying your Nightingale-Studio product in the sun or close to a radiator or other heat source.
    You can treat dried-up raindrops and other light stains by simply rubbing two (affected) leather surfaces together.
    Following exposure to moisture and removal of any light stains, re-treat your item using the beeswax.
    Never treat stains with caustic solvents, such as gasoline or acetone.
  • Leather that has become stiff will recover its malleability following treatment with leather grease, such as beeswax.
  • Leather surfaces may initially leave traces of color behind. Likewise, given their slightly higher risk of color transfer, you may want to exercise caution when wearing a black item with light-colored clothing.
