The friction will activate the wax on the product and renew the shine. If this product ever gets wet. DO NOT PUT IN DRYER. Allow to lay out flat in a warm location and dry naturally. Some hardware over time will get a used or antiqued feel. Never use chemicals to clean the hardware and renew. Chemicals can affect the leather.
