Dealing with Mold and Mildew on Leather

Ocassionally we receive inquiries from customers who are experiencing problems with leather that has mildewed from exposure to moisture or improper storage. Try mixing up a solution of rubbing alcohol and water (1:1 ratio) and wipe down the mildewed area using this solution. Once you have eliminated the mold, you will want to immediately treat the article with Obenauf's Leather Oil or LP to restore the necessary natural oils. Purchase Obenauf's Leather Oil with our special anti-mold additive to provide heavy duty protection from future mold and mildew problems.
