How to clean and restore your leather jackets and garments

Leather is an extremely durable garment fabric. Our ancestors have been wearing leather since we all lived in caves. Many of the artifacts that have been salvaged from the Egyptian tombs are made of fine leather. When the Titanic was discovered a few years ago, even though all traces of humans had long since been lost to the sea, leather wallets and satchels remained intact, and protected many recovered artifacts belonging to the souls on that fateful journey.

Because leather is durable, it is a simple matter for the owner to keep it clean, conditioned, and gorgeous for generations. When you bring your leather items to the cleaners, they are put into large machines that clean them with harsh chemicals. Your leather comes back dryer, and with the color more faded than when you sent it. It just makes sense to trust your leather to a cleaner that will truly care for it, YOU!

Because apparel leather is not as thick as automotive leather, heat is not required, and the average temperature in your home is sufficient.

Keeping the hides nourish with the proteins and collagens in the Rejuvenator will also help keep the leather more impervious to rain, as plump leather will not absorb moisture. You should never use your leather coat as a rain coat, as it is not formulated for that, but all of us have been caught in downpours, and this should be no excuse for ruined leather.

Clean your leather apparel at the end of each season before you put it away. With a bit of care, your leather will last indefinitely

If color is faded, worn, or damaged, you can easily redye your jacket with Leatherique dye to help it look like new again.
