How to Clean a Leather Flogger
A leather flogger is typically made of leather, but the fuzzy side is made of suede or fur. For this type, you should follow the same care instructions for suede footwear. If the flogger is made of fur, it should be cleaned with a damp cloth.
Using saddle soap to clean a leather flogger can make a big difference in the life of the tool. If cleaned regularly, the leather can retain its shape and feel for years. It also offers a perfect combination of style, comfort and durability. This article covers some of the most common methods of cleaning leather.
First, make sure the leather is clean before applying saddle soap. A clean cloth should be used to remove any debris that may be stuck in the leather and can affect the application of saddle soap.
Beeswax removes odours
Beeswax is a common natural lubricant for leather products. It can also help form thread and cord. Beeswax forms a protective layer on these materials, making it easy to stitch. It can also help make leather products waterproof. Beeswax also acts as a “resist” for stained, dyed, and colored leather. Adding it to leather items can be a great way to maintain the appearance and feel of leather.
Beeswax is also used to make furniture polish. Not only does it protect leather goods, but it also improves the air quality of your home. Beeswax also imparts a fresh and natural scent to your furniture. You can find many recipes online that use beeswax in this way.
Using a suede brush
A suede brush is a more aggressive way to clean suede. It is designed to restore the nap of suede. Suede has many tiny hairs that can lose their volume with use and rubbing against things. These hairs are aligned and form a “nap,” which allows suede to retain its shape.
If your suede flogger has a fuzzy side, you can clean it with a soft, damp cloth. While you should be careful with this type of flogger, the same basic rules of cleaning leather floggers apply to suede as well.
Using a suede cloth
Cleaning suede is not an easy task. It is necessary to use the proper method to prevent stains and remove lint. First, take a clean and dry cloth. It is best to use a smooth cotton pressing cloth such as a cotton dish towel or a pillowcase. The leather should be ironed on the flesh side, not the top. Then, iron it with the correct weight and pressure. The iron should have a medium to low heat setting because higher heat settings might scorch the leather. While ironing, lay the tails out on a table, one half dozen at a time, and keep the pressing cloth underneath each one.
When cleaning suede, always remember to use a suede cleaner that is suitable for suede. Suede cleaners that contain natural ingredients are better than those containing harsh chemicals.
Cleaning with a suede brush
A suede brush is ideal for cleaning suede. Its bristles are stiff, yet soft, so they are gentle on the skin. A suede brush will lift out small spots with a single direction of brushing, but more difficult stains may require more pressure and brushing in multiple directions. Suede brushes may also be used for restoring raised texture.
Keeping a suede brush handy is essential to maintaining the suede and leather of your flogger. Using a suede brush will help you remove tough stains and maintain the beautiful shine of your leather flogger. If the flogger has fur, you should apply the same method for the suede side.
