Leather Jackets for Women are high fashion at this time. Leather is a sensual and long-lasting natural material known for its rugged and versatile nature. Since you have taken the time to choose the “just right” leather jacket for your wardrobe, caring for it in the proper way will be important in preserving it for a long time.
Leather does not need to be professionally dry cleaned very often which is one of the big selling points of owning a leather jacket. It can be a staple of your wardrobe for years to come.
Cleaning leather can usually be done by simply wiping down soil and dust with a clean cloth or a light soap such as baby shampoo. Do not get the leather very wet and dry it away from heat or sunlight. If there is an oily stain on the leather, rub some baby shampoo directly on the spot and let it sit for a few minutes. Then sponge it off carefully so as not to affect the dye.
Saddle soap and water can be used to clean more serious stains but it is important to try this on an inside seam to see if the leather has a finish or not. If it has a finish the water will bead up on it and will not make a stain, however, if there is no finish it will cause a spot. When cleaning suede leather use a suede brush or fine sand paper rather than soap and water.
Be careful not to spray hair spray or perfume on your women’s leather jacket as this will damage the leather. If you get caught in the rain, hang your leather jacket on a hanger and let it dry naturally without heat. If it becomes stiff you can restore the softness by using a leather conditioner.
