How to Clean Wallets and Leather Products: Complete Guide

Leather is a natural material that, over time, can accumulate dirt and wear if not properly cared for. Keeping your wallets and leather products clean not only improves their appearance, but also prolongs their lifespan.

This article will guide you through the recommended methods and products to keep your leather accessories in perfect condition.

Materials Needed for Cleaning Leather

To clean your leather products, you will need some specific materials that will help preserve the quality of the material without causing damage:

  • Soft bristle brush : Useful for removing surface dirt.
  • Cloth : A soft, damp cloth for more stubborn stains.
  • Leather cleaner : Specific for this material, it helps remove dirt without being too aggressive.
  • Leather Conditioner : To nourish leather after cleaning, keeping it soft and supple. At ROIK we recommend hand moisturizing cream with neutral pH.
  • To protect the leather : Transparent natural beeswax. Apply after cleaning to protect leather from stains and water.

In case of severe deterioration in the skin or leather, there are specific synthetic products that help recover the color and texture of the leather, leaving it practically like new. These products are easily found online, but it is necessary to find the exact color of the skin so that differences in tone are not seen.

Step by Step: How to Clean Leather Wallets

  1. Preparation : Start by removing any dust residue with a soft cloth or soft bristle brush.
  2. Cleaning : Apply water to a soft, clean cloth. The cloth must be damp without excess water. Make gentle, circular movements. Make sure you treat the entire surface. Change to clean areas of the cloth frequently.
  3. Drying : Let the wallet air dry in a well-ventilated place, always avoid exposure to direct sunlight which can discolor the leather.
  4. Hydration : Once the leather is clean and dry, apply a little hand moisturizer to the leather to restore the material's natural moisture. Distribute it well over the entire surface and watch how the skin recovers its shine and color.
  5. Protection: The best product we can recommend from ROIK to protect your leather wallets is colorless natural beeswax. Beeswax, apart from moisturizing, creates a layer of protection against humidity and external agents.

How to Protect Leather After Cleaning?

To protect your leather wallet and make it look like the first day, just follow these tips:

  • Do not leave your leather wallet exposed to the sun or humidity. If it gets wet, dry your wallet right away with a soft towel or cloth.
  • If you won't be using your wallet for a while, store it in the cloth case included with your ROIK in a clean, dry place.
  • We use our wallet several times a day and the grease from our hands adheres to a natural material such as leather. Clean with a damp cloth once a month to remove accumulated dirt.
  • If you live in a dry place, moisturize your bag more often, especially in areas where the skin folds.

Common Leather Cleaning Mistakes and How to Avoid Them

Some common mistakes include:

  • Using unsuitable products : Avoid alcohol-based or acid-based cleaners that can damage the leather.
  • Excess water : The leather should not get too wet, as it may warp or crack.
  • Lack of regularity : Cleaning and conditioning leather regularly is key to its conservation.


Follow these tips so that your ROIK leather wallets maintain their quality and aesthetics for years. Our leather wallets use the best leathers and skins of natural origin because we want them to accompany you in your daily life for many years.
