The main purpose of this website is to provide readers with the right techniques in order to clean and also repair their faux leather items, and today, I would like to talk about faux leather bomber jackets for men, they are the rage nowadays and most people who bought them think that they are fantastic and a true bargain because they are not very pricey and the style is always amazing.
However, what most people aren’t aware of is the fact that they need to clean their jackets using certain techniques that are very important to respect when dealing with faux leather fabrics.
And this is what I’m going to talk about today, how you can clean a fault leather bomber jacket and also how to keep it crack free, in other words, how to make it more durable and more resistant to elements surrounding you.
Let’s first talk about how to clean faux leather bomber jackets for men.
There are so many techniques you can use when dealing with faux leather fabrics, but personally, I’ve tried them all, and I know from fact that the following is the best one:
You some few drops of baby oil and a dry cleaning cloth, wipe very gently and you are done!
You can also substitute baby oil with warm water, although with some cheap faux leather fabrics, it can cause damages, but if you stick to good quality faux leather bomber jackets, you have nothing to be scared of.
How about putting your bomber jacket in the washing machine?
Unfortunately, although most manufacturers are going to say that their jackets are washing machine safe, I don’t believe this, because most machines are not suitable to cleaning faux leather fabrics, they may even use heat sometimes in the cleaning process which is very devastating and damaging to the fabric, that’s why I don’t recommend doing it, and if you would like to clean your faux leather bomber jacket the right way using a washing machine, I highly recommend that you take it to a professional.
Let’s talk now about how to make your jacket much more durable and resistant.
In my opinion, and from my experience, the best technique to use is to apply essential oils, most importantly, oils and greases that are suitable for faux leather fabrics, and the best one I’ve found so far is saddle soap.
Just apply some few teaspoons and wipe gently using a dry cleaning cloth, then, hang it near an open window for at least ten hours, on a dry day while keeping it away from sunshine and dust, this will dry it and make the saddle soap nourish the faux leather fabrics.
