Always dry out wet leather items; Use brush regularly

Drying: Never leave your leather products like bags and shoes wet for too long, or they might catch fungus and get spoilt. Instead, dry them under the fan, overnight, so they're ready for the next outing.

Brushing: Dust and dirt have a tendency to settle on your leather items even more during rains. So, make sure to gently brush your shoes and accessories regularly.

Polish your leather shoes; Store leather items in dry place

Polish: Polishing is a great way to maintain your leather goods. Use a wax-based polish for your shoes during rains. For your bags, a mild leather conditioner will do.

Storage: When you are not using them, keep your leather goods covered in a clean and dry cloth, and store them in a dry place, to avoid the risk of moisture or fungus during the monsoon.
