Daily Denim Tip: How To Care For The Leather Patches On Your Jeans


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.
