How to Clean Leather Jacket?

Leather adjusts to your body temperature,
and because it is a "skin", it pores absorb
and release approximately 30% of its
weight in moisture. This lost moisture
needs to be replenished or your leather
will eventually dry out & show crackings.

Leather has natural oils, these oils can
be removed in cleaning, the final part of
the cleaning process replaces the lost
oils, so that the garment returns to its
original state

Leather is the skin of the animal. The
skins are washed in water, tanned
and stretched before being pared
and for this reason color variation &
shrinkage will occur eventually.

All garments have multiple panels
making up the item. Each panel in a
leather garment has come from a
different part of different animal.
Because of that, it is natural that
there will be some slight texture and
color variation.
Sun Fading is one of the most
common problem on leather jacket.  
We can enhance these color loss
and cover up all the scuff, scratches
around the zipper area, pockets, and
sleeves.

Leather is stretchy. So your garment
tends to conform comfortably to your
body when wearing. After cleaning,
the garment may feel a little snug but
after wearing this feeling will
dissipate.

Leather Jackets Cleaning
Dye, Color Restoration

Suede feels velvety, luxurious
when new.  Suede could be a
nightmare to maintain!  It absorbs
stains, liquid quickly, fades or
loses color drastically.

After cleaning Suede, it almost
guarantees that dye refinish is
needed to even out the tone and
revitalize the color.

How To Clean Suede?

Common Problems and Solutions with Leather Garments:
Stains in Leather

    Body oils, perspiration, grease, spills on leather can be cleaned. A badly stained leather garment can be saved by
    Cleaning AND Recoloring.

    Most manufacturers recommend that leather garments be cleaned by professional leather cleaning methods. This
    ensures that the stain will be treated properly, and that the suppleness, color and finish of the garment are maintained
    or restored.

Leather Wrinkles
    Skins taken from the loose neck or belly portions of the animal are naturally wrinkled. During manufacturing the skins
    are stretched for a smooth appearance. As the skins relax with age and cleaning, the wrinkles may reappear.  If you
    have serious wrinkles, most likely, your leather has experienced some contact with water and shrink!  Since leather is
    stretched to make new garments, these wrinkles is best pressed out by a professional.
    Drop the wrinkled garments at our cleaners: 5837 Camden Ave, San Jose, CA 95124 and request PRESS ONLY or
    CLEAN & PRESS

Ink on Leather
    Ball point pen ink can not be removed from painted finishes without removing the surface paint as well.  The solution is:
    to remove the ink marks, then redye or recolor the affected area after ink removal.

Color Loss
    Dyes can oxidize from exposure to UV light and gases in the atmosphere. This is a slow progressive condition that
    develops with age. It may become more noticeable after cleaning.  If Dye has been lost significantly or you experience
    uneven, blotchy light/dark color, we can reDye your leather jacket for a newer, fresh look.

Adhesive Residue
    You casually slap an adhesive-backed name badge on your leather coat or jacket. When trying to remove it, that area of
    my coat lost its finish.  Sound familiar?!This is a problem that we see frequently.  Send the garment to us and we will
    remove the adhesive and lightly refinish the blemished area.

    Some suede has seams that are glued together, lapels, pocket flaps etc.  This glue can migrate through suede and
    show as dark marks on the surface of the suede. It is very hard to remove!  

Thin Skin
    Some skins are extremely thin due to overstreching in the tanning process (to yield more squarefootage of the skin).  
    These skins will wear exceptionally fast and cleaning will further aggravate the damage of thin skins. Rips, tears,
    troubled wrinkles can occur, these are almost impossible to repair because the leather is overstreched too thin.

    When cleaning . moisture is added to leather, it can distort its shape and/or shrink. This is especially true when lesser
    quality leathers are used in manufacturing in order to meet acceptable pricing in the marketplace.

Imperfections of Leather like Scars & Tissues
    The manufacturer use artificial "fillers" to cover up imperfections in the skins, like scars & vein marks. Hides are then
    batch dyed before being made up into a garment ensuring uniformity of color on the finished garments .These
    imperfections may become more apparent over time or after cleaning as the filer compound gets thinner or even
    washed away.  We can touch up the affected areas with matching color but there's not much to do hide these original
    scars and tissues.  These are ... natural. Remember "leather is a ... SKIN", veins, marks, scars is somewhat expected.
