These should be pretty easy to clean.

You can wipe down the leather upper with a damp cloth if necessary. You can use leather cleaner also. The lining can be cleaned with soap and water if needed.

You can store them flat or rolled. I typically store cuffs flat in a drawer.

Hope that helps!

Agreed.

Since those are white, you may want to take extra special care of them, considering the fact that they may stain easier. There is a tag on those, as ASLAN always has one, and it give you a bit of information on what to do.

Personally, I keep those ones hung up because they are so large.

Regular soap will shorten the life of your leather. Saddle soap is specifically formulated for leather and contains no free alkali that will damage it. Saddle soap is available at tack stores, where shoes are sold, and you should be able to find Kiwi brand saddle soap at any Walmart or CVS.

Glycerin saddle soap is a step up because it will moisturize the leather a bit while cleaning.

Feibings makes great products and has soaps and conditioner on their site:

When cleaning, soap in sections and then remove the soap immediately with a damp cloth. Try to use as little water as possible. When finished dry them with a clean cloth and then set them rolled but unbuckled to air dry.

If they get particularly sweaty after play, give the inside a once over with a damp cloth to keep the salt from sitting.

On conditioner- unless they are going to be exposed to the kind of conditions that saddles or boots suffer (sun, wind, rain, etc) they shouldn't need conditioning for quite awhile. Glycerin soap alone will keep them nice and soft. There is also always the possibility that conditioner will darken white leather. If you decide to condition, you can test this by putting a small amount on an inconspicuous area of the cuff and let it soak in overnight. If you decide to proceed, spread a thin layer over the cuffs and let it soak in. Wipe off any excess the next day with a clean cloth.

Avoid conditioners like mink oil (animal cruelty, has silicone, can go rancid), neats foot oil (synthetic), and Lexol (known to cause allergic reactions). I would recommend Aussie (available on the Feibings site) or Chelsea Leather Food.

I use leather wipes that I purchase at the local Harley dealership. (I ride) They are disposable and work great to clean and condition without a lot of effort. I also store my leather in a cool, dark place so that the elements don't dry them.

I use saddle soap to clean, and hang them flat on my wall to dry/ display.
