Cleaning canvas and leather cartridge belt


Recommended Posts

Howdy, I have recently aquired a secondhand canvas and leather cartridge belt.  The one that looks like a fire hose with leather cartridge loops sewn on.  The canvas needs a good cleaning.  How is the best way to clean it without damaging the leather loops and buckle ends?  Thanks

You can spot clean canvas with a Dawn & warm water mixture.  Use a small sponge and a toothbrush for bad dirt; dab dry with a clean cloth.  Try not to get a lot of the solution on the leather parts.

 

A little patina adds character.

my wife saves some old toothbrushes for just this type of task - you can avoid all the ramifications of following roosters idea , or retire yours early and start fresh with a new one for that same purpose , keeps those domestic calls to a minimum , law enforcement will thank you ,

One of our cats likes the taste of the toothpaste that my wife uses.  We have caught him numerous times chewing on her toothbrush.  He doesn't like mine - I use a different brand of toothpaste.  We both now put our toothbrushes in a drawer.

 

Multi packs of toothbrushes are available at the dollar store.  I don't trust their toothbrushes for my teeth, but they're great for gun cleaning and stuff around the shop.
