Would you like to keep your faux leather shorts looking amazing and as new even after many years of use? Then, you’ve come to the right post, I’m going to share with you some of the best techniques I’ve found for keeping faux leather fabrics looking amazing and in perfect conditions, even after many years of use.
However, I need to warn you, if you are dealing with very cheap faux leather shorts, that are made with very low quality fabrics, then you have only yourself to blame!
I’m not saying this to “blame” you or to make you feel bad, I’m only saying this because most cheap faux leather shorts are very difficult to maintain because they have a very thin layer of fabric that’s not going to withstand wear and tear, even worse, it’s going to start peeling and cracking after just some few months of extensive use!
Nevertheless, these tips are going to increase your shorts lifespan, by at least some few months!
Now, without further ado, here are the most important tips to prevent cracks and peels in faux leather shorts:
The first one is to avoid exposing them to moisture a lot.
If you keep wearing your faux leather shorts every single day, then, they are not going to last you a long time.
It’s quite similar to when you are dealing with shoes; if you wear them every single day, they will deteriorate, lose their shine and texture, and even start showing signs of damages and tears!
The same thing is going to happen to your faux leather shorts, don’t wear them every single day, and especially if you use them for sports, they will absorb a lot of moisture and they will lose their strength and start peeling and cracking very quickly.
The second tip is to apply a good quality oil to them.
And here, I’m not talking about vegetable oil; I’m talking about synthetic oil, the one used for preserving and conditioning real leather.
From my experience, mink oil is one of the best products you can use for making your faux leather shorts stay good-looking and resistant to cracks and problems even after many years of use, just apply a small amount, wipe very gently, and then hang them and let them breathe and dry or at least five hours.
This will definitely increase their lifespan dramatically.
