Caring for your Leather Garments

Caring for your Leather Garments

3rd October 2018   /    blogs , specialist cleaning   /    no comments

Have you got a lovely leather jacket stored in the back of your wardrobe, damaged from a day out in the rain? Or perhaps it has a stain which you’re not sure how best to go about removing.

Unlike your standard items of clothing, caring for your leather garments can be slightly more difficult and special care must be taken to ensure that your garment remains in top condition and is not damaged long term by water, spills and/or stains.

The Benefits of Leather Cleaning Brown Leather Material

Cleaning is an important part of taking care of your leather goods, especially if you want them to stay looking their best for years to come. Leather garments normally come with a premium cost meaning no one wants to have to run out to the shops and buy a new leather garment if items become damaged!

The good news is you don’t have to, providing you know what to do if your leather garment becomes stained or is in need of cleaning.

There are numerous benefits to caring for your leather properly:

  • Keep your garment looking its best for years to come. Over time leather can start to look aged, however with proper care and treatment, your leather items can withstand the test of time ensuring minimal colour fading if your leather items are well maintained. black-leather-coat-jacket
  • Prevent permanent damage from stains. A small stain that you may not have thought anything of at the time can lead to big consequences for leather items. Leaving stains can cause them to set leading to permanent damage to the garment. Professional cleaning of your leather garments can help to remove stains and prevent any lasting damage.
  • Prevent the need for expensive repairs. If leather items are not cleaned and treated in a timely manner extra costs may be incurred as the damage increases. Caring for your leather will decrease the need for expensive repairs.

Dry Cleaning Winter Clothes

Cold, wet weather means that you will be wearing warm, thick clothes, which can be difficult to wash in an ordinary washing machine. It also isn’t easy to dry clothes during the winter months.

The tumble dryer can also shrink clothes.

Let’s take a look at why dry cleaning can help alleviate the issues associated with cleaning your winter clothes and even your winter duvet.
