>> How To Get Wrinkles Out of Leather
Removing Wrinkles From a Leather Garment
included a few different methods for you. Try which ever technique
you think will work best for your leather garment.
Always be extra careful and take great care when dealing with
a leather garment. Whenever doing something for the first time
at home, always test on a small inconspicuous area first.
The Steam Method
One solution is to hang the leather garment in the bathroom.
Turn the shower on hot to steam up the room. Let the steam work
out the wrinkles. Take the leather garment out of the bathroom
and lay it on a flat surface, such as the bed or an ironing board.
Smooth the leather garment with your hands to massage the wrinkles
Normally, hanging a leather garment from a thick hanger and gently
pulling the wrinkles would straighten them out. Most wrinkles
will hang out on their own, although it is perfectly safe to iron
leather, as long as it is done correctly.
Ironing a Leather Garment
Do NOT put an iron directly in contact with leather. Always AVOID
using steam while using your iron on your leather. Set the iron
on the rayon setting.
Use a 100% COTTON cloth in between the leather garment and the
iron, or use heavy brown wrapping paper as a pressing cloth and
a barrier between the item and the iron. Press with a light, quick
hand to avoid overheating and shine. Wrinkles should come right
out. As always, when doing something at home, test on a small,
inconspicuous area first.
Try one of these today if you have time and tomorrow we'll finish
up with the other methods for removing wrinkles from Leather.
Using A Blow Dryer
You can also try using a blow dryer but do not put it in direct
contact with a leather garment. If the leather is not too badly
wrinkled, then the blow dryer may work. Always use extreme caution
and patience, and test on a small area first.
Patience is key. If you want your leather garments looking their
best, then give them your best effort. Here are a few tips to
keep in mind.
**Cleaning and Storage Tip**
After you clean your leather garment with a damp cloth or a mild
soap, pat the surface with a clean soft cloth. Then give the leather
a fine dusting with baby powder to seal the pores. Finish with
a rubdown using a clean dry cloth to bring back the sheen.
Nice and fresh!
Store your leather garment in a well-ventilated area and cover
with a cloth to keep it dust free. Avoid storing your leather
garment in plastic. Leather is porous and it needs to "breathe."
