Full Answer

Despite the admonitions to regularly clean leather that is treated, vachetta leather does not require such maintenance because it is untreated. If vachetta leather gets wet or is soiled, cleaning only damages the leather and changes its color. It is best to leave the stain or marks on the surface; the pale color eventually darkens, and the stains on the leather blend into the darker color.
