Genuine leather belts are businessman’s top accessories in their daily life.
Hongmioo has more than 20 years experience in making belts and there are some professional advice for customer how to maintain a genuine leather belt.
1.Make sure it fits: Buying a belt that is too large for your waist size is one sure-fire way to ruin it quickly. If too large, the belt will bend around itself which results in small lines and creases.
2.Condition it: The best way to ensure a belt’s life expectancy is to treat it right after you buy it with leather conditioner. It’s a good investment because it can be used on leather shoes and jackets as well.
3.Clean it: Over time, leather can develop a small odor. To rid the stink, give it a good once-over cleaning. Using a banister brush covered with soap, lightly scrub the belt on both sides. Rinse with water. You can dry a leather belt with a hairdryer, but make sure it is at least 15 centimeters away from the dryer’s nozzle.
4.Don’t wear it out: It’s best to keep at least two belts in your wardrobe and alternate wearing them. Take the belt off of pants at the end of the day. Leaving it on can force it to bend out of shape and crease the material.
5.Keep it dry: It’s a common known fact that leather and water just don’t mix. If your leather belt does come into contact with water, blot it with a towel and let it air dry. Add some leather oil to the belt’s surface.
