It should be noted that it must not be exposed to the sun or close to a heater. Fast drying will prevent the leather from recovering. Soft and original elasticity. If you are in a hurry, you can also use a hair dryer to dry it in cold air, and finally apply a layer of leather special care agent to keep it delicate and shiny.
At the same time, it is not recommended to use waterproof and dustproof spray. This kind of spray is very common, and the initial effect is also good. But because chemical agents have certain damage to the dermis, long-term use may cause hardening and cracking of the cortex.

B. You can choose a non-steam iron to improve wrinkles. Pay attention to the temperature when ironing, and try to control it at 60~70℃. It should be noted that when ironing, a layer of insulating cloth should be placed between the iron and the leather.
