As the summer months approach and temperatures begin to shoot upward, we find ourselves perspiring more. Whether it’s adding extra hours at the gym to get that coveted beach bod or whatever we may be doing especially when outdoors, sweating is simply inevitable.
When you do find yourself sweaty and decide to go for a drive, your car’s leatherlining might be in for some nasty trouble. As durable as leather may seem, it needs to be cared for and that includes keeping your sweaty hands and everything else drenched off of it. Why?
