Question about proper care for kangaroo leather

Sorry ahead of time if this question has been posted before. I did a search and nothing relavent seemed to come up. I was told with kangaroo leather and possibly with all leather sometimes you have to soak the goods( ex: gloves) in water after long use to dissolve the salts that have accumulated from sweat. I was told the salts damage the leather over time. Any one know if this is true?:dontknow: If so what temp hot, cold, warm? And how long? Just want take of my gear and keep it functional. Gear that works makes for a happy rider.

A lot of the leather repair places soak leathers. I don't think kangaroo leather is any different.

Soaking them in water (luke warm) will take out all the salt and make the leather more pliable- as long as you condition them after.

Usually, the leather places do this for you at a nominal price and can repair or alter leathers at the same time
