Coconut oil to Soften a Leather Belt

A leather belt is one of the greatest and most stylish fashion accessories. Pure and premium quality leather is always very expensive and add to that cost of a designer label and price sky rockets. Therefore buying a leather belt is not same as buying any other accessory. It is in fact an expensive investment in your lifestyle and a way to make an emphatic statement about your fashion sense and style. Therefore it becomes a matter of utmost importance that you take proper care of your leather belt just like you would do to any other premium investment of yours. So what follows is a write up about how to soften your leather belt if it goes hard. But first, let us see why would it go hard?

•  Leather is basically animal skin which is composed of fibers. Now these
fibers are bound to go dry or break up over a period of time if they are not
lubricated regularly.
•  When it starts to dry out and still not taken care of then it will ultimately start
cracking and breaking.
•  Similarly, high heat conditions, pollution, ultra violet rays etc also take their toll
on leather.
•  Best way to avoid these problems is to use leather lubricants, stain repellants
and take other general precautions while storing you belt.


Using coconut oil

•  Take your leather belt out in the sun for about 10 minutes, this will bring the belt
at ideal temperature for use of coconut oil.
•  Now get some coconut oil and dip your fingers in it. With your fingers start
rubbing the oil all over the belt.
•  Repeat this process as often as required until you are sure that entire length of
the leather belt has been oiled universally.
•  Although this will soften the leather it might also change its color to a darker shade.
