Should the leather become soiled, cleaning should be done with a soft cotton cloth or soft toothbrush slightly dampened with distilled water (sodium-free seltzer water may be substituted) and a mild bar soap, applied in a circular motion. Repeat with distilled water only to ensure no residual soap remains. The material should then be allowed to dry completely.
No creams, polishes, cleansers, or leather conditioning agents should be applied to any portion of the leather. The leather trim will characteristically darken over time with use and with exposure to light.
