  Things You Should Never Actually Clean With Water

Anyone who’s had their favorite pair of leather shoes ruined in the rain will know how much water can affect the material. “Leather is delicate, especially when wet, and the color can come off easily,” says Carolyn Forte, director of the Good Housekeeping Institute Cleaning Lab, per Good Housekeeping. Not only might your leather lose its color, but water can eradicate the natural oils from the material, leading it to dry out and crack, according to Leather Honey, a leather-care products company.

For smaller, easier-to-clean items, use a mild soap or, as Forte recommends, a specialized leather cleaner. Gently rub it into the spot that needs cleaning with a damp paper towel. Then, wipe it clean, and allow it to air-dry. If you’re using soap, treat your leather with a leather conditioner afterward to keep it soft and supple. It’s important to do a small spot test before you apply the cleaning product fully to make sure that the application won’t remove any color. And, if you have any doubts or if your item is too big or complicated to clean, Forte advises taking it straight to a professional.
