Tips for Cleaning Leather Goods

From its headquarters in Quito, Ecuador, Ministry Ideaz provides customers with a range of high-quality handcrafted goods, including book bags and book covers. Ministry Ideaz uses genuine cowhide leather to create many of its covers.

Here are some useful tips for cleaning leather without damaging it:

1. Dust the surface. Prior to using any cleaning products, wipe the leather’s surface with a dry microfiber cloth or other soft cloth to get rid of dust.

2. Make the cleaning solution. Mix one part mild soap with eight parts water, ideally distilled or bottled water to prevent tap water particles from becoming part of the solution. Pour the mixture into a spray bottle.

3. Clean the leather. Avoid spraying the cleaning solution directly onto the leather, which may cause oversaturation. Instead, spray the mixture onto a clean cloth and use it to wipe the leather.

4. Work on difficult spots. If there are difficult stains, such as ink, dampen a cotton swab with rubbing alcohol and rub the stain until it comes out of the leather.

Protective Vinyl Covers for ‘God’s Kingdom Rules’

Originally founded to sustain a ministry in Quito, Ecuador, Ministry Ideaz now provides hand-crafted quality items to more than 180 countries for use in the ministry of Jehovah’s Witnesses. One of Ministry Ideaz’s products are protective vinyl covers for the God’s Kingdom Rules book.

This is a clear protective cover with colored trim. The product was produced because the God’s Kingdom Rules book is a paperback publication and is therefore not as durable as the hardcover versions that were earlier produced. As many have experienced, the God’s Kingdom Rules book can undergo much wear and tear, therefore the cover can help protect the book and lengthen its service life.

The plastic book cover has sturdy reinforced stitching with the edges covered with decorative fabric for enhanced durability. Old world techniques were used to handcraft this cover, featuring selected high-grade plastic that will not begin to fracture after a few months. The vinyl cover is easy to wipe clean, which will help keep tidy an important book.
