Handling Hide the Right Way

October 09, 2000|From Baltimore Sun

This season, leather leads the line of hot trends on the runways, but no designer is offering what we really need: a manual on how to care for and protect the stuff. For that, you must turn to Wilsons Leather, which offers the inside tips on handling hide on its Web site (www.wilsonsleather.com). Here are a few:

* Immediately after buying a leather item, treat it with a water and stain repellent to prevent damage.

* Don't keep heavy or bulky objects like loaded key chains in your leather pockets--they'll stretch them out of shape.

* Put hairspray and perfume on before you don leather--they stain the material.

* Repair hems with a small amount of rubber cement.
