Cleaning Your Whip
Use only pure glycerin soap to clean your whip. To clean the whip lather a soft and slightly damp cloth. Then rub the whip gently from handle to end. Use a second slightly damp cloth to remove the lather. Hang whip to dry at least over night before conditioning it.
Conditioning Your Whip
All of our whips have been cleaned and conditioned already. Master Axel conditions them while He plaits them. However, we recommend that you still clean and condition your new whip every 3-5 months. We highly recommend that you use only Pecards Leather Conditioner on your quality kangaroo leather whip. After cleaning, take a small amount of Pecards and rub it between your hands and apply to the whip, working from handle to end, then hang the whip overnight in a warm place, then wipe off any extra the next day. Neatsfoot and other oils are not recommended as they damage the leather and ruin the whip.
Storing Your Whip
Store your whip hanging whenever possible. If not, lay it out straight and relaxed for storage. Store your whip in a case or bag when traveling with it. It needs to be protected from any other toys, as many things can “pick” or “nick” a plait and weaken your whip, or even jab between the plaits and damage the whip. If nothing else protect with a thick towel. Please feel free to contact me at Owhips.com if you have any questions, concerns or comments.
