you own a fine leather jacket then you've probably drawn a few
looks here and there because of the style. Unfortunately over
time, even a great leather jacket can turn ugly on you if it isn't
Prevention is Your Best Option
When you first bring your leather jacket home, you want to condition
and waterproof it. After that, proper care will keep it looking
fabulous for years. In fact, did you know that with proper care,
leather out wears denim 20 to 1? I've heard stories where a good
quality, well maintained leather jacket can last as long as 50
Find out everything you can about your leather jacket, get the
right stuff and set aside time for mandatory cleaning. If you
don't do it yourself, then pay a pro to clean your leather jacket
for you. You can thank me later for that tip!
Leather Jacket Repair
How can you repair the sleeves on your leather jacket when the
edges are cracking, without making the leather weak or super soft?
If you have any loose edges, you can actually tack them up with
a small dab of rubber cement which is sold at most grocery or
retail stores. If the edges are not torn but just starting to
look rough, one of the best options is for you to use a combination
of mink oil and beeswax.
Typically this concoction is sold as paste, making it easy to
apply. While it helps to improve those rough spots, it does soften
but not too much. This combination will also help preserve the
leather and prevent stains.
Leather Jacket Maintainence and Restoration
One of the top products you can buy for your leather jacket is
called Lexol. This brand is excellent for restoring worn leather,
bringing it back to its natural state. Another professional cleaner/conditioner
is called Fiebing's All Purpose Leather Cleaner and Conditioner.
It too helps restore leather that is worn while also helping to
prevent water spots, stains, and even cracking.
Another great product that does it all, conditions, waterproofs,
preserves, softens, and restores leather is called Snow-Proof.
This product has no color or odor and is excellent on leather
jackets as well as boots and shoes. Best of all, it will not leave
a greasy feel.
Carnauba Cream will also help to restore and smooth out your
leather jacket. It helps to resist scratches and finger prints
and does a great job of restoration. One other product you should
investigate is called Leather Balm with Atom Wax. This particular
product was formulated specifically for leather to help with preserving
and restoring. It also helps produce a nice soft, natural finish.
I suggest doing some research on these products before settling
on one. Type the product name into a search engine and read up
on their different properties. Prices and results will vary depending
on the application.
