I’m Only Happy When It Rains (But Your Leather Won’t Be)



Rainy weather doesn’t always bring gloomy feels. Just like in Garbage’s song released in 1995, some people are happy when it rains. However rainy weather is an enemy of our leather loves.

Leather can become wet, but that isn’t a good idea. When leather gets soaked, major issues emerge the moment leather dries out. The oils in the material react to water molecules resulting in drawing out its moisture as the water dries and evaporates. The loss of natural oils leads the leather to lose its suppleness and becomes brittle with repeated exposure to water. Moreover, rain contains harmful chemicals caused by pollution, which further aggravates the damage to the leather. 

Doctor Leather can help you ease your worry and still be confident wearing your precious leathers even during the rainy seasons. With the unpredictable rains causing mayhem in our everyday lives, it’s critical to know how to care for these dear leather goods. Leather is a tough material that endures a long time if properly cared for. Regardless of its endurance, if it is not properly maintained, particularly during the rainy seasons, it can get ruined far before its time.

We listed down some useful tips you could do to give your leather extra love and care:

Tip #1. Fluids must be dried out

If your leather product has been exposed to rain, simply brush off the dirt. Carefully dab the wet parts using a soft cloth to remove as much water as possible and allow it to dry at room temperature.

Tip #2. Waterproofing

To keep your leathers dry in the downpour, consider using a waterproof compound. Choose a waterproofing solution based on the type of leather you’re wearing. Spray it extensively over your shoes to build a protective layer to ensure that it does not harm your leather shoes. We offer water proofing as an add-on service when you have your items cleaned and restored with us.

Tip #3. Store Properly

During the rainy season, moisture is abundant. Even if your leather items are stored carefully, they are still subject to moisture damage. It’s critical to keep your leather in a fully dry environment. Consider investing in a dehumidifier if you store your leather goods in damp areas.

Tip #4. Condition

To soften your leather item, use a leather conditioner. Make use of your fingertips and concentrate on the moist areas. Begin with a little quantity and work your way up to a larger amount.
