This is how you clean your leather saddle
Good maintenance starts with good cleaning. We recommend cleaning your saddle at least once a month. For this you can first brush away most of the dirt with a (soft) brush.
Then you can further clean the leather with a little water and special leather soap or saddle soap. This soap contains glycerin, which prevents the leather from becoming stiff. The soap removes the remaining dirt and sweat. We recommend that you do not use too much water, as this will make the leather unnecessarily stiff.
After cleaning, let your saddle dry well in the air, preferably at room temperature and not too close to a heat source. You can then continue to care for the leather with one of our care products, such as leather or leather oil. These products feed the leather and make it water-repellent.
A little fat or oil is enough. Rub it in well and after retracting for a while you can rub the saddle dry with a clean cloth. With this you immediately remove any excess oil or fat.
After all, your groomed saddle is best stored in a well-ventilated area.
Cleaning of a plastic saddle
Cleaning and maintaining a plastic saddle is a lot less labor-intensive. It is sufficient to regularly remove dirt and sweat from the saddle by cleaning it with water and a cleaning spray.
