Care Instructions

How to care for your purchases

  • To keep your collars and jewelry lasting longer, keep it away from prolonged contact with sweat and water. Do not wear while swimming.
  • Chlorinated water in swimming pools will oxidize and blacken the hardware of the chokers as well as the locks, which can be hard or even impossible to remove, and the cleaning process can alter the finishing on the metals.
  • Avoid extreme temperatures if possible. Leather does best in cool or room-temperature. Extreme heat can cause leather to dry out. You can definitely wear your collar outside on a hot day, but you should be careful to store it in a safe, cool and dry area.
  • Avoid wearing it too close to a campfire or cooking on an open flame.
  • Don't worry about a little bit of wear! Leather looks great both new and with some wear. It slowly gains more characteristics the longer you have it.
  • Avoid contact with household chemicals, perfumes, and hairsprays.
  • Putting a coat of clear nail polish on the heart rings can help keep it staying shiny longer. It also is a great solution for many people who have reactions from nickel.
  • Avoid dropping the lock as it can break the locking mechanism.


Cleaning Tips and Tricks

  • Do not clean with harsh chemicals. Abrasive cleaning materials can harm the leather, stripping away the necessary oils that may cause it to dry or crack.
  • Avoid the use of soaps or detergents on the leather.
  • Clean using distilled water. Do not soak in water, but wipe it clean with a damp cloth.
  • Do not roughly scrub your collar as it can cause any dust or dirt to scratch or damage the leather.
  • Afterwards, let your collar air dry in a cool area. 


How to store your collar safely

  • Keep your collar in a dry, cool place away from direct sunlight.
  • Prolonged sunlight can affect the colour of the leather, and potentially lead to the leather drying out.
  • After wearing it during a time where you may have come into contact with water or have sweat, please leave in a cool area to dry before storing it in an air tight or dark area to avoid any potential mildew issues.


What happens if it has mildew?

While we haven't had any experience with this happening to our collars, it's best to always be prepared. So don't panic if it does happen! You can definitely restore your collar to it's non-mildew-y state! We've got you fam!

Use one of the following two solutions to clean off your collar:

Solution 1:

  1. Combine 1 cup of rubbing alcohol and 1 cup of water.
  2. Dip a clean cloth into the solution.
  3. Wipe the affected area and let it dry away from sunlight.

Solution 2:

  1. Combine germicide soap and water.
  2. Was the leather with the germicide soap using a damp cloth dipped in the solution.
  3. Wipe the affected area and let it dry away from sunlight.
  • Avoid soaking the leather in either of the solutions. Constant use of rubbing alcohol can also dry out the leather.
