    I was wondering of the best way to clean Apple Watch Bands of various kinds without damaging or discoloring them.

    Sport Bands

    Sport Loops

    Leather bands (Modern Buckle, Classic Buckle)

    I just use a good leather cleaner on leather bands to keep it supple. For the sports bands, just water and a wipe down with a cloth is fine

    Can you recommend a good leather cleaner?

    Any good leather cream will suffice. I use Meguiars Gold Class Rich leather cleaner which is a leather cleaner for cars. It’s superb and you only need to use a dab of it once a week to keep the leather soft.
    Have a look on Amazon for leather cleaner products and go on what the reviews say

    Sport Bands - Mr Clean Magic Eraser has done really well for my sport bands, both Apple Official and 3rd Party Bands

    Sport Loops - Run them through the washing machine with a load of laundry, I just put them in my shorts cargo pocket. Works for Apple Official and 3rd Party Bands

    does the magic eraser cause discoloring?

    Not on any of the bands that I've used it on.
