WOOD PHONE CASE
Wood is the most delicate phone case surface, thus it is more important to dust your wood phone cases more often. This will prevent oil, dirt, and debris from sinking in or scratching the surface. If possible, avoid water when cleaning your wood phone case. Too much contact with water can cause wood to deteriorate. Instead, maintain your wood case by regularly cleaning with a dry microfiber cloth. While tissues or other cloths can leave scratches on wood, microfiber cloths contain delicate fibers that suck up dirt without harming the surface. (See below for our recommended microfiber cloth for wood phone cases)
For tougher grime on your wood phone case, you can slightly dampen the microfiber cloth with a small amount of water and wipe. If it is extra sticky residue, add a few drops of white vinegar to water and dip your cloth in the solution. Never apply a liquid directly to the wood case, always apply to the cloth. Then use a dry microfiber cloth to soak up any excess water. Since wood is porous use a fluffy or terry microfiber cloth to dry wood. This will ensure you are absorbing into the small cracks and crevices.
Tip: Make sure when you are cleaning and drying you are going with the grain.
LEATHER PHONE CASE
Leather phone cases are best cleaned with a mild solution. You can lightly clean your leather case with mild hand soap, and a damp microfiber cloth. Apply the soap onto the cloth and distribute evenly. If you have a mild cleaner, use it along with a dry cloth. When drying, use a plusher terry type microfiber cloth, instead of a flat woven type. The is because leather is porous, so you want to make sure you are getting into the smallest cracks and crevices of the material.
Always make sure you are being as gentle as possible when cleaning and drying, rubbing in circular motions. This will ensure you are not stretching the leather. Keep in mind that different products and solutions you are using on your leather case can alter its look and color, so the simpler the cleaning job the better.
Tip: To restore and condition your leather use Saddle Soap.
