Alligator Leather Facts

Alligator leather is one of the most beautiful and durable of the luxurious exotic leathers and with a little care should last many years. Without proper care, the flexibility durability and overall appearance of alligator leather will diminish drastically with time. While neutral shoe polish will enhance the shine, with normal use, some of the oils that tanners put into the leather will disappear. These oils and compounds must be replaced periodically, in order to maintain a like new quality leather product. Donít hesitate to purchase our exotic leather care products or search the exotic leather shops and department stores in your area for a leather conditioner that is recommended for alligator and replenishes these oils and adds water resistant and stain resistant qualities. Belts should be treated on both sides at least two times a year. Wallets and other products that are compressed should have a monthly application. If the compartments tend to stick together, try to lightly sprinkle cornstarch or talcum powder on the offending parts. A little baby powder sprinkled on the inside of a purse or other leather products that stay closed and are dry, can do wonders for the aroma.

Alligator Leather Care

Alligator leather should be stored in a cool dry place when not in use. High quality belts should be hung from the buckle. Do not fold alligator products in unusual (backwards) positions or bend belts sharper than a 6 inch radius. If your small leather goods become wet, first gently wipe off excess water with a soft dry absorbent cloth, then dry them naturally and slowly without direct sunlight or auxiliary heat.  Make sure they have an abundance of clean dry air passing over and under them. A small fan helps. Turn them over every few hours to facilitate drying. After they are thoroughly dry, apply leather conditioner to all exposed leather as directed below. Apply conditioner again in a day or two and your alligator leather should remain serviceable. Once the leather cracks, it is too late.

Avoid excessive heat, water and direct sunlight.  Never use household chemicals, alcohol, or other solvents to clean your alligator leather. Remember that the burnished classic finish on alligator is very fragile in reference to solvents, cleaners and conditioners commonly used for some other types of leather. These harsh conditioning products may destroy the finish on alligator.

Application

Always test anything that you apply to the leather on a hidden or inconspicuous surface before treating the entire product. Pay particular attention to the color, as some conditioners tend to make finishes less glossy or darker in color. Apply the conditioner following the manufacturerís instructions.
