Care and cleaning on harness

Peace357 Peace357
I just purchased one of your beautiful Commando harnesses and, as this is my first harness, was wondering how to take care of it. What leather conditioner do you recommend? What kind of soap?

Spot wash areas like the crotch in 70 percent isopropyl alcohol. Rub it in let it evaporate. Then wash it antibacterial liquid soap like Soft Soap or Dial. Press out all the water with a towel. Then, to keep it really soap, rub in Kiwi Saddle Soap and press out the water and hang it over a towel rack or door knob to dry. You can also treat it with Kiwi Mink oil conditioner. I wash this off too, but don't use it but infrequently because saddle soap is so moisturizing. Always store in a dry area like a drawer, or in a cloth bag. Plastic bags can make them moldy in the warm humid weather.

I have quite a few harnesses, some are ancient and still look new.

I wash mine using a moistened wash cloth with liquid antibacterial soap as mentioned above but I just rub over the areas that need attention and then rinse also with a damp cloth.
I hang mine on a skirt hanger in my closet. My Jaguar Harness looks as good and sexy as ever!

If your harness has metal pieces, you can coat them with a layer of clear nail polish to help prevent tarnish and rust.

Great tip! I use clear nail polish for all sorts of things - and clear enamel from Zar.

hi,
you can use either dish soap or leather soap like Lexol leather cleaner.
With a moist cloth and a little soap wipe the area yo be cleaned. Wipe off excess soap using a moist cloth. Pat dry immediately, be sure to get all of the moisture out of the fold and creases. Store your leather in a cool dry place away from direct heat and light. Do not store in a plastic bag.
Never soak or submerge your leather in water. Always dry completely directly after cleaning.
Protect metal rivets from tarnish by adding a coat of clear nail polish.
Condition your leather with Lexol leather conditioner when it shows signs of drying.
This should not be too often, every six months or so depending on frequency of use.
With a little care and love your ASLAN harness will stay looking new and it will last you a long time. The more you use it, the better it gets!

I haven't found Lexol, but I've found Kiwi products in Walmart's shoe dept. It's 5 bucks in Hawaii, so it must be a buck or so cheaper everywhere else and its so totally softening and protecting. Use a better brand of clear polish, the cheaper ones peel off rivets. Actually I found the clear with some glitter holds on the best.

I have 2 black Jaguars, a silver one, a white one, a red one and two packing straps and a Commando-all leather, and only the color from the commando bleeds into my skin if the room is the least bit humnid. It also staines the wash cloths blue green everutime and bleeds blue green when leather cleaner and water touch it. Is this a new dye or a different type of leather?
