Don't you just hate it when you get a stain on your leather jacket? We know the feeling, but don't worry, because there are ways to clean your leather jacket and make it look good as new. Leather jackets are definitely a must-have in every woman's closet. They’re wearable and extremely stylish, which makes you want to wear them almost all season long. But the question is, how to clean your leather jacket?
There are 4 different ways to clean a leather jacket:
1. Don't wet it!
The first thing you need to do, is to spot any sort of visible dirt spots on your leather jacket. Grab a damp wash cloth or semi-moist wipes to get off any marks, without wetting your leather jacket.
2. Leather stain cleanser
Invest in a good leather stain cleanser, that has no water base, to efficiently clean your leather jacket. Make sure to rub the stained part of the leather jacket with a soft dry wash cloth or a small towel.
3. A gentle wash
Another way to clean your leather jacket, is to gently wash it using water and shower gel or any mild cleanser. Soak a wash cloth in water and shower gel, and gently rub the stained area of the jacket in circular motion. Go over it again with a damp wash cloth to remove any extra soap. Leave it to air dry without subjecting it to the sun.
4. The washing machine
Read the washing instructions inside the jacket, and check if it can be washed in the washing machine. If it can, make sure to turn your jacket inside out, and set the washing machine to the shortest and most delicate washing cycle.
5. Try the sample first!
In the pocket of your leather jacket, when you first buy it, you should find a sample leather piece that is meant for testing on first. Show it to your dry cleaner's and ask them to test on it first before the jacket itself.
