It is extremely humid in Singapore, and that can cause our leather products to develop mould and our patent leather items to become sticky. In response, most of us try to protect our leather by using moisture absorber packs for storage.
It may seem like a good idea at first, however, storage is a process for the long haul. If left for long periods, the content of moisture absorber packs become liquid and can leak at the slightest tilt. The chemicals in this liquid can damage your leather items if it comes into contact with your leather goods because the chemical is very corrosive.
Damage ranges from mild deformity or dark irremovable stains, to permanent shrinkage and hardening. Thus, irreversibly spoiling your precious leather products. Take a look one of the rescues we did, a Hermes Birkin was utterly deformed and in need of restoration.
