Your leather coat is a gorgeous addition to your wardrobe. However, these can often be expensive investments. That means that you need to take a great deal of care when it comes to maintaining and cleaning your leather jacket. At Reward Laundry, we understand how much you like your leather coat which is why we want to offer you tips on how to best maintain your prized leather jacket.
You are going to want to wear your leather coat out, which means that it’s important to waterproof it. This will prevent damage to your leather coat, especially if there is an unpredicted storm. As soon as you buy your leather jacket, you should get it to treat it with a waterproof sealant spray. Do this once a year, after it has been washed. This will add another layer of protection to stains as well.
You may notice a spot or maybe you spill something on it. For these minor, daily incidences you can spot clean your leather jacket. To do this, use a clean but damp cloth.
Use a Leather Conditioner
Leather conditioner is essential when it comes to keeping your leather jacket smooth and gorgeous. If you’re not sure about the right products to use for this, we can take care of this for you.
Polishing your coat is good because it helps it retain that nice shine that leather jackets have. This should only be done on a rare occasion, like for a special event.
Should your leather jacket get wet, hang it evenly on a hangar to air dry. Be sure to keep it away from direct heat sources, like radiators.
By hanging your jacket evenly, you can prevent and remove wrinkles. If this doesn’t work, we can help you remove those unappealing wrinkles on your coat.
Use a Brush
There are brushes that are made for cleaning leather, but make sure that you choose something that is made for the type of leather of your coat. This is great for removing dust or dirt, as well as some light stains.
It isn’t just important for you to ensure that you are hanging up your coat properly. You also need to store your coat in a cool and dry location, like your closet. For extra protection, you can use a garment bag.
The Right Hanger
Using the right type of hanger is crucial to properly storing and hanging your coat. Ideally, you will want to use a wide, padded hanger for optimal results.
