  • Do clean the holster with a soft cloth and mild soap. A gun holster that comes in contact with perspiration on a regular basis may need to be treated as outlined above as often as once a month
  • Do work soap and a small amount of water into the leather and apply to the surface, rub in and wipe off with a soft cloth (once a month)
  • Do allow the leather to air dry naturally, without any type of artificial heat
  • Do use a small amount of a neutral leather cream or a bit of cooking oil to slow the natural breakdown of the leather
