Natural leather belt question

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Sorry to post this, but I've searched and have only found snippets of info on what I'm looking for. 

 

I had a belt made, and just wore it without treating it. I got a water stain on it and was wondering if it's possible to get it off? 

 

I just done a few coats of leather conditioner to protect it more, so might just have to live with it. I'm getting another one made and will be coating it straight away. Would you guys worry about this stain?

I guess for $15 I shouldn't be too worried about it!

Just roll with it. Once you get some more patina going it will blend in.

It is no big deal, I have gotten lots or water stains on a natural leather belt of mine. Like Chet said, they blend away as the rest of the belt ages. If it does bother you, I have found fiebings saddle soap, with a bit of rubbing to greatly reduce water marks. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B001O4VGYA
It is also very important to avoid conditioning the leather until it has had sufficient time to completely dry, otherwise you help set the stain.

Thanks for all your replies guys, it's not so noticeable now. First time with a natural belt, just want it to turn out well! Thanks!
