How to clean and maintain your strap

Depending on the material of your watch strap, we recommend slightly different cleaning methods for keeping your Apple Watch strap nice and fresh.

For silicone, nylon and vegan leather straps we would recommend cleaning with a damp cloth or mild soap and water. Just be sure to let it air dry before putting it back on your wrist.

As for leather, you can use a damp cloth to clean off any debris, and moisturise the leather would a soft leather conditioner. This ensures the leather does not crack over time.

Lastly for your stainless steel straps, start by wiping them with a damp, soft cloth. For tougher stains, a mild soap solution can be used, followed by a thorough rinse and dry. Avoid abrasive cleaners and scrubbers, as they can scratch the surface. Regular cleaning prevents water spots and stains, preserving the stainless steel's lustre and longevity.
