How To Waterproof A Leather Wallet
Buying a leather wallet from various stores often means that the wallet has been treated properly, meaning that it should already be waterproof.
Waterproof when it comes to leather, doesn’t mean that no water can enter the wallet, but rather means that the leather won’t be damaged in any way when it comes in contact with water.
If you made your own leather wallet, waterproofing it is important to make sure it doesn’t get permanently damaged by water implications.
Thankfully, this is rather easy and simple to do and requires very minimal work.
Treating your leather wallet properly
Creating your own leather wallet requires proper care for your leather after assembly.
This involves applying various creams or conditioners suited for leather, to make sure the leather doesn’t dry out and crack.
This should be done 1-2 times a year but can be required a bit more frequently for new wallets.
Polishing your wallet will give it that iconic leather shine, and is thereby not necessary, but still preferred by most people.
Waterproofing your wallet can be done quite easily by acquiring a waterproof spray or similar and applying it to your wallet.
This will give your leather wallet a layer that protects it from water, spit, snow and other simple liquids.
Waterproofing it is simply to avoid getting permanent marks from wet substances, which can save your wallets overall look from being ruined.
Applying a waterproofing spray to your wallet is only necessary once a year, but can be done more often if you live in a very cold or dry environment.
