It’s a must-have for biker gear, leather jackets are protective, sophisticated and trendy, but there is still a big problem when it comes to maintenance.
The First Thing
First of all, it’s important to realize that leather is a living material. Hand washing, machine washing, scratching with the nail, abrasive brushing, direct ironing and nylon covers are therefore prohibited. Just as you clean your skin (yes, leather is skin!), you have to be delicate to maintain the leather bomber jacket. Therefore, avoid all that is too aggressive, abrasive sponge, too rigid brush and generally all that dries, such as polishing.
If you are a fan of the “do it yourself”, it is recommended instead of milk for baby or make-up remover, a white egg beaten in snow and the juice of half a lemon that will make an effective mixture to clean your jacket .
Remember to clean the neck and wrists stained sweat, applying a cream against burns that you find in pharmacies:
For linings, the mens leather bomber jacket should be spread flat on a large towel. You sprinkle in a thick layer, on the whole lining, a mixture talc and bicarbonate of soda. Talc absorbs fat and bicarbonate removes odors of perspiration.
