Cuero Gloves - care instructions

Some people have asked me how to care for their gloves. In general you don't need more than to rinse them in cool water after a particularly sweaty ride. That will remove the accumulated salts and extend the life of the gloves. Lay them out to dry and they will be fine.

Every few months, you need to take some additional care by adding some conditioner to add the natural oils into the leather. That is where my #1 Leather Liniment comes in. For deeper cleaning, #2 Leather Cleaner is what to use.

Here is how to use each.


CUERO GLOVE CARE FAQ


What is #1 Leather Liniment?
Leather Care Liniment is a water-based leather conditioner that works best on finished leather. Leather Care Liniment absorbs easily and deeply into the pores of your leather rejuvenating the leather with a mixture of natural oils and conditioners without leaving a messy residue. #1 Leather Care Liniment is a 95% conditioner and 5% cleaner. The recipe works splendidly at cleaning the surface of your leather. This is usually all that is needed for regular leather upkeep.

How to use #1 Leather Liniment:
1. Make sure your gloves are dry.
2. Wipe the surface dirt off of your gloves.
3. Apply No.1 in THIN, EVEN layers across the entire surface of your gloves with a clean cotton cloth. Apply additional layers as needed. Applying the conditioner in this way reduces the risk of over-conditioning and makes sure any change in color is uniform.


What is #2 Straight Cleaner?
#2 Straight Cleaner is for those times you want to give your leather a more thorough cleaning or when you need to lift a stain that has set into the leather fiber. You don't need to use Straight Cleaner every time you condition your leather item. Most of the time a surface cleaning with Leather Care Liniment is all you need.

How to use #2 Straight Cleaner:
1. Make sure your gloves are dry.
2. Apply No. 2 generously into your leather with a clean cotton cloth and rub it in gently. Allow the leather to fully soak it in and wait for it to dry.
3. Follow up with #1 Leather Liniment conditioner.

Is Liniment something you formulated or can I get it locally?

I partnered with a from a company in Ft Worth called Leather Milk. You can buy directly from them but they did a special run of small bottles for me.

To be stupid... do you apply conditioner to BOTH sides of the glove? Or just outside and it works it's way through?

Outside only is fine. A light coat is all you need
