Caring For Your Leather Glasses Case 101

People who have poor vision or need some vision correction rely a lot on prescription glasses.

However, beyond their practical purpose, this type of eyewear has evolved into a fashion-meets-function item, with luxury brands designing and manufacturing prescription specs.

Because of this industry trend, the way eyeglasses are packaged has changed, giving birth to more upscale versions of eyeglass cases.

73% of glasses wearers use a case for their specs, but one in five don't keep their glasses in them when not in use, neglecting proper care.

If you don't use your plastic or cloth glasses case regularly, a stylish leather one might motivate you to use it more often because of how good it looks.

A leather case can elevate your eyewear container into a chic accessory of its own.

And, like with your eyeglasses, your leather case would need care and cleaning. Here's how you can care for your leather glasses case:

Benefits of a Leather Glasses Case

Leather is known to be a durable material, which is why it's often associated with good quality and luxury.

A leather eyeglass case can give an exclusive look that pairs well with designer eyeglasses.

Eyewear powerhouse Ray-Ban has long used leather material for its glasses cases, which are just as timeless as a pair of Clubmasters or Aviators.

The added branding with the logo also adds a premium vibe.

Being naturally resilient, leather is also ideal for protecting lenses from scratches and bumps that can ruin them.

The breathability also prevents issues like mold growth that can damage your eyewear. 

To make the most of these benefits, you need to properly clean and care for your leather glasses like you would with any other leather accessory or item; here's how:

Regular Cleanings

Regular cleanings are crucial for helping your eyewear case retain its premium look. After all, when you leave them lying around at home or in your car, they can easily accumulate dirt and dust.

Gently brushing the leather with soft bristles or microfiber clothes can remove spots on the case.

Using a damp, clean microfiber cloth, do gentle rubbing motions on any minor scuffs andstains; a bit of water is just fine here, as using soap or other harsh chemicals can dry the leather.

Scratches can also be an eyesore on the case, especially with black leather ones that sometimes come with Tag Heuer glasses and sunglasses.

You can buff out minor scratches using your finger and its natural oils or use a leather balm for larger ones.

Leather Cleaning and Conditioning

Leather can dry out over time, leading to discoloration, cracks, or stiffness.

If basic leather maintenance doesn't work to prevent these, and you might want to invest in a leather cleaner for better results.

Look for a leather cleaner formulated for the specific leather of your case, then test it on as mall area to ensure it won't discolor the material.

Add a small amount of leather cleaner to a microfiber cloth before rubbing it gently around your case. You can follow this with a leather conditioner to maintain suppleness.

Store-bought leather conditioner is fine if you have it, but you can also try to make a DIY leather conditioner at home with a mixture of beeswax pellets, plant-based oils (coconut, olive, or sweet almond), and coconut or shea butter to restore moisture and shine every couple of months.

Storage

Elements like light and water will naturally affect leather quality over time.

Direct sun exposure can cause discoloration and brittleness in leather due to the sun's harsh UV rays. Heat is also something to avoid.

Keep your leather case away from heat sources as much as possible, or leave it in an area with good air circulation to maintain its look and feel. 

When caring for your leather belongings, proper storage should be a priority to keep them in their best condition.

You can cover your case with a cloth to protect it from dust, dirt, and damage.
