Most of the time water will just evaporate and with no problems and the stains will disappear. If your car Leather crafting workshop gets wet dry it as best you can with a towel and then condition it with your Lexol Conditioner.

I found that some of the leather steering wheels after being repaired and dyed just felt dry and didn’t look natural. What I do is apply a water based leather conditioner and then I apply a leather wax or chap wax. What this does is not only restore the oils lost in the repair process but make the leather steering wheel look and feel factory. The wax also protects the leather from water and lotions that may get on there later. It just makes the leather look and feel new again!
