Are leather clothes your favorite? Do you wear them frequently, but don’t you know how to clean them and you spend lots of money at the cleaning? There is no need to spend that money anymore.

With the tricks below, you can clean your leather clothes right at your home.

How to clean a leather jacket:

1. Cleaning of persistent stains

– Apply a little toothpaste using your finger on the areas with resistant stains

– Rub softly with a soft cloth until the stain disappears

– Don’t scratch with your nails because you can discolor the leather

– Remove the toothpaste with a clean and wet cloth

2. Cleaning the mold

– Mix equal amounts of alcohol and water

– Soften a cloth in this mixture and wipe the area affected by mold

– Finally, wipe with another wet cloth.

3. Clean grease or oil stains

– Slowly sprinkle baking soda or corn starch on the stained area

– Gently rub the stains with a wet cloth.

– Let the substance act for 4-5 hours. Baking soda (or starch) will absorb the oil.

– Finally, clean with a soft cloth.

4. Cleaning of dust and other impurities

– Prepare a solution with hot water and liquid detergent, soak a soft cloth in it, squeeze it and wipe the jacket.

– Alternatively, you can make a solution of water and vinegar in equal proportions. In this situation, use a soft and clean cloth to remove the solution.

– Dry the leather jacket with a towel.

Tips:

– Don’t use ammonia or chlorine-based cleaning agents to clean the leather. These products can damage the fabric and can excessively dry or crack it.

– Don’t use too much water because you can stain your jacket.

– Have you applied a harmful substance on the coat? Clean it immediately with a soft cloth. Leather is a porous material and will absorb the fluids immediately, resulting in a stain.
