I put down my black snakeskin wallet onto a table & when I picked it up there was something sticky.
Without thinking I wiped it with a paper towel & some cheap leather cleaner/conditioner (use on my couch with no problems so I thought it was ok).
Well a bunch of black color came onto the paper towel & the whole area is now dull & not shiny.
Anything to do to restore the shine or did I ruin my wallet?

I’m not docride (and a more talented crafts person I’ve never met here!) but I would recommend Bickmore Exotic - Specially Formulated Leather Spray Used to Clean Condition Polish and Protect Exotic Leathers & Reptile Skins for this wallet. You can find it on Amazon.
