Here is how to clean a red faux leather jacket properly.
As mentioned in some of my previous posts, cleaning and maintaining red faux leather fabrics can be very difficult compared to cleaning and maintaining a white or even a black one!
I know that this is going to sound strange to most of you, but this is the truth, when dealing with red faux leather fabrics, you have to be very careful because the red dye is very sensitive to UV rays and certain chemicals as well.
Now, without further ado, let me present to you the best way to clean your red faux leather jacket: use a good faux leather conditioner!
Don’t try to go cheap on this one, if you start using vinegar, alcohol or other chemicals found in your home, you will just damage your red faux leather jacket permanently!
My advice is to invest some few dollars in a good faux leather conditioner, and to respect the second advice I will give you.
Always act quickly!
I still remember how lazy I was when dealing with stains and other dirt on my clothes, I would wait till I come back at home and then put my clothes away and ask my wife to deal with them, needless to tell you that I’ve lost so many dear items!
Don’t be like me and whenever you are dealing with stains on your red faux leather jacket, the first thing you should do is get a clean piece of cloth, then, apply some warm water and wipe until everything is clean.
However, don’t stop at this, because water contains chlorine and other minerals such as calcium and magnesium, your red faux leather jacket may absorb some and soon, it may start showing white patches all over its surface!
To avoid this, when you come home, immediately use a dry cloth with your faux leather conditioner and wipe the affected area, this way, you will simply get rid of the excess minerals absorbed by the faux leather fabric.
And yes, this is how easy it’s to clean a red faux leather jacket, let me now tell you about how to maintain it in perfect condition.
It’s very easy as well; you just need to apply some saddle soap at least once every six months.
It will keep your red faux leather jacket as new and you will never have to worry about its elasticity and texture being damaged.
One more very important advice is to never fold your faux leather jacket and store it in a humid area, always hang it, and remember, faux leather is like plastic, if you fold it and put it away for long period of time, it will stay this way and will give you so many headaches to get rid of the wrinkles.
