The best way to care for your fine natural leather chamois is to clean and nourish it with Griot's Garage Chamois Cleaner. This gentle cleaner works without destroying the skin's natural oils, and conditions to restore the natural suppleness.
Chamois are something special indeed. Made of natural leather hides, chamois are a luxurious way to dry your vehicle. They're gentle on the paint and have that intoxicating smell of real leather. And just like leather upholstery, chamois have special requirements to maintain their softness.
Griot's Garage Chamois Cleaner is formulated specifically for genuine chamois. It cleans the leather without stripping oils or over-drying. By maintaining the leather's oils, your chamois will last longer.
There are other things you can do to make your chamois last: Use them just on the paint and only for drying. Brake dust and carbon are not likely to come out of chamois, and you don't want to risk contaminating the paint with these materials. Hang your chamois to dry out of direct sunlight. Avoid using detergents or soaps.
For the longest life of your chamois, wash it only in Griot's Garage Chamois Cleaner.
