If your jeans’ leather patches are tarnished or have absorbed excessive oil, causing discoloration (which is inevitable, by the way), you can follow a few easy steps to keep them looking good. This guide comes courtesy of the Fifth Requisite blog, and you can find the entire process with easy-to follow-photos there.
You’ll rub Steklean or another leather cleanser on the surface of the patch. Wipe it around until thoroughly coated. Then, wipe the patch with a damp cloth to remove the cleaner. After it’s dried completely, apply your favorite leather-protecting solution to the surface. The result will be a clean, gorgeous leather patch that looks good as new.
