It is essential to know how to care for your leather jacket, whether it is a treasured item such as an oversized, plus-size, custom leather bomber, or any other design from our extensive selection. Though they are classic, leather jackets need to be properly cared for to remain in good shape. Irrespective of the type of leather jacket you own—a biker, vintage, or hooded jacket—we’ll take you step-by-step through the cleaning and maintenance process in this article.

Materials You’ll Need

  • Mild Leather Cleaner: Use a cleaner made especially for clothing made of leather. Avoid using cleaners with alcohol or strong chemicals.
  • To wipe and dry your jacket, you’ll need soft, lint-free cloths.
  • Leather Conditioner: To keep the leather supple, use a high-quality leather conditioner.
  • Hanger: To keep the jacket in shape when not in use, use a padded hanger.

Cleaning Steps

  • Preparing: To begin, take everything out of the jacket’s pockets and give it a little shake to get rid of any loose objects.
  • Spot Test: To make sure a cleaner won’t damage the leather’s finish, do a spot test on a discrete area before using it.
  • Use a Damp Cloth to Clean: After soaking a cloth in the leather cleaner, carefully wipe down the jacket, paying special attention to any stains or dirty spots. Take care not to soak the leather too much.
  • Rinse and Dry: Use a separate damp cloth to wipe away the cleaner. Then, pat the jacket dry with a clean, dry cloth. Avoid direct heat sources like radiators or sunlight to prevent the leather from drying out.
  • Condition the leather: Using a clean, dry cloth, gently work a tiny quantity of leather conditioner into the jacket’s leather. By doing this, you can keep the leather from drying out and preserve its natural oils.
  • Storage: Keep your leather jacket in a well-ventilated environment and put it on a padded hanger when not in use. Steer clear of plastic bags since they may retain moisture.

Additional Tips

  • Avoid really hot or very wet environments with your leather jacket.
  • If your jacket becomes wet, let it naturally air dry. Never use sources of heat.
  • To get rid of dust and grime, give your leather jacket a gentle brush every now and again.

Whether it’s an oversized, plus-size, custom, bomber, biker, hooded, or vintage jacket from Poolvos Leather, you can maintain its fashionable appearance for many years to come by adhering to these measures. With the right maintenance, your leather jacket will last a lifetime in your closet and add to your uniqueness and sense of style.
