Taking care of your Charlie Noble

The leather your Charlie Noble is made from is incredibly robust. Cleaning is perhaps something that is given too much emphasis; any cleaning should be done only when necessary. It is not essential to the life of leather that it should be cleaned regularly, but at the same time an accumulation of dirt and grease over a period of time is undesirable and obviously, the longer it is left the more difficult it will be to remove.

Dirt is abrasive and over a period of time in extreme circumstances will cause the removal of the protective coating. Regular cleaning can be done simply by using a damp cloth, taking care not to soak the leather.

How to clean your Charlie Noble

Use a cloth soaked in a mild soap/water solution (not detergent) and wring it out until damp. Apply the cloth to the surface of the leather in a light circular motion, turning the cloth regularly. Avoid aggressive rubbing action. Repeat with a damp cloth rinsed in clean warm water.

Allow to dry and then lightly polish using a clean, dry soft cloth.

Don't use cleaning fluids and preparations unless specifically directed by the tanner.

Don't over clean - leather really doesn't take much looking after!

Don't use wax/spray polishes - upholstery leather is not the same as shoe leather! Wax polishes and furniture spray often contain silicone which will, in time, produce an unpleasant sticky feel to the leather.
