How do I clean my Dainese leather items?

It is important to avoid dirt from building up over time on leather items. Here are some guides to clean Dainese leathers:  
      • Never clean your products with solvent-based cleaners. 
      • We recommend using the Dainese “Protection & Cleaning Kit” to treat your leather. It contains two bottles of solutions:
        - Which helps in deep cleansing the leather, and
        - maintaining the softness and richness of the leather.
      • Alternatively, you can clean the product with a sponge or a clean cloth, accompanied by some cold water and a dash of neutral soap.
      • Avoid direct exposure of heat and sunlight and leave it to air dry completely.
      • Lay the leather to dry on either a flat surface or a suitable hanger.
      • The lining must be washed separately in lukewarm water (not more than 40°C), with a softener free, neutral soap.

Oil and insect stains should be:
      • Washed immediately with a soft damp cloth, in gentle circular motions.
      • Dried in a well-ventilated place, away from any direct heat or sunlight.
