bulletHang your leathers on wide or padded hangers to avoid permanent marks or stretching 
bulletDo not store leathers in plastic or non-breathable containers or covers 

Clean and Condition your leathers properly to keep them soft and supple

bulletAvoid waxes and silicone. These products clog pores in the leather making it impossible for conditioners to penetrate between the fibers
bulletConditioner should be applied at least twice a year or when the leather feels dry or stiff 
bulletLeathers will repel water better if they have been conditioned regularly 
bulletLeather should be cleaned sparingly by professionals who specialize in leather cleaning 
bulletIf necessary, a very small amount of saddle soap can be used with very little water to clean spots
