LEATHER CARE & MAINTENANCE
Taking care of your Epic Armoury leather armor and gear is a must! Leather is a natural material that can easily rot, grow fungus, smell, crack or become brittle if not well maintained. Leather can last for years with the proper care and maintenance. So please take the time to keep your LARP gear in top shape.
Please do not leave your armor lying in the grass after removing it. The acid and humidity from the grass tend to accelerate the rot and strange odors that are hard to remove.
When you have finished LARPing, remove your leather gear and let it dry in the sun as you tear down your camp. The Sun's ultraviolet radiation and increased water temperatures work together to kill harmful bacteria in the water and help to kill the fungus that can grow on the leather.

Leather Care & Maintenance
Use a dry bristle brush or clean, dry bath towel to remove dust and dirt after every LARP event. It is important to note that you must avoid using water due to maintain the napped finish of the leather.
If you do nothing else, just cleaning your LARP gear using a wet rag is the way to go. Avoid using any regular soap because the chemicals can harm the leather. Saddle Soap is a perfect alternative.
Use distilled water to avoid particles in the water. Never soak the leather, it is preferable to spray onto a soft cloth.
Gently wipe the leather to remove the dirt and mud, going with the grain of the leather when possible. Then allow drying in the sunlight.
Waxes and creams and certain types of silicone sprays are the perfect way to protect your leather from deteriorating.
Soft Leather Articles:
Every year, articles such as belts, laces and boots require great flexibility are therefore we suggest using creams such as Mink Oil. The cream will keep your leather supple and waterproof. If it is an unusually rainy season, we recommend doing this twice a year or as often as you can.
Hardened Leather Articles:
We strongly suggest using Wax on articles like pauldrons, bracers, armor and helmets or hard leather surfaces such as vegetable tanned leather. The wax will keep the surface hard as well as protected.
