Cork Care

Cork is naturally stain and water resistant. To improve the durability of your cork item and keep it in top shape, you should clean it regularly with warm water and a little soap, using gentle circular motions. To perfectly clean your cork wallet or bag, follow these instructions: 

  1. Add a small amount of mild detergent to warm water. 
  2. Dip a soft, clean cloth into the detergent solution and wring it dry. Dust off any visible dirt, making sure you cover the entire surface in the first brushing.
  3. Dip your your cloth back into the solution and wring it a little less the second time. Start rubbing the surface in circles as gently as you can. Move through the piece, getting to those places where there is still dirt on. 
  4. If you feel it’s necessary, dip the cloth again and rub difficult spots again. Don’t forget to go easy on the surface.
  5. Once you feel you’re done with all the dirt, you should get a clean soft cloth and wipe the item clean. Allow it to dry naturally out of direct sunlight.
