CARE & MAINTENANCE : Jewellery
Maintenance: Wipe gently with a polishing cloth that is soft and clean. Do not soak in water. Avoid contact with soaps, moisturisers, detergents, perfume or hair spray.
Clean: Clean your jewellery with a mild soap and water solution, allowing the water to bead up, and then patting dry with a soft cloth. For more stubborn dirt, use a cleaner designed for silver use.
Store your silver pieces individually, in a cool, dry place, preferably in a tarnish-preventive bag or wrapped in a soft piece of felt or cloth. Most Priest London designers provide a dust cloth with each order.
Don’t wear sterling silver in chlorinated water or when working with household chemicals.
CARE & MAINTENANCE : Leather
Good leather actually gets better with age and regular use.
Care: With time, all products made from natural leather, ages and loses its moisture and oils. This causes the leather to dry and fibres to stretch. However, with proper care, it can stand the test of time.
Handle your leather bags with clean hands: Leather bags are susceptible to absorbing grease and oils. Wipe the surface of a leather tote with a damp white cotton cloth, but be careful not to use too much water, because leather takes time to dry.
Apply a cleaner designed for leather care. Apply this “soft soap” in a circular motion and wipe off with a slightly damp cloth so as not to clog the pores of the fabric. Applying this soap one or two times a year should keep your leather bag clean.
Moisturise your bag with a leather conditioner // do not use a conditioner on patent leather bags
Never use products that contain Lanolin – often found in baby wipes.
If you are applying a waterproofing product then it’s strongly recommended that you first apply a care product to help lock in moisture and to keep the fibres of the skin supple before making it waterproof. Only apply the waterproof to areas that will be exposed to moisture.
Clean stains as soon as you notice them. Organic stains from food or blood can often be removed with chalk powder. Crush white chalk, let it sit on the stain overnight and dust it off with a clean cloth.
- Leather products should be well aired out or stored in a cloth bag.
- Do not enclose leather products in plastic bags for a long period of time
