Washing and Wearing Leather Jackets

You can make your leather cleansing solution by mixing 16 fl oz (470 mL) of water with a few drops of dish soap. Apply a soft towel or cloth to the application and wipe down the leather jacket.
Then, dip a new cloth in the distilled water and wipe the leather jacket off again. Dry the leather jacket with a soft, dry towel or chamois.

Start washing in a gentle cycle using cold water. Remove the coat when you have finished washing, as the washing machine will not be able to drain all the excess water. Then, transfer it to a drying machine and use it over medium heat until dry. This should remove any wrinkles on the leather jacket.

If you have a pair of shoes or another leather jacket with a light wax mirror, you may need to purchase a particular product to remove the wax. Buy a leather bottle of wax remover at the shoe department store or online. Apply the product on a rag or soft cloth and wipe over the leather jacket. Continue to use and wipe the face until the mirror is completely gone.
- Mirror glaze can be challenging to remove. Press hard as you wipe down the Leather Jacket.

Pour a small amount of acetone nail polish remover into a cotton ball or soft cloth, and then rub a cotton ball or cloth on any spots you want to lighten. Focus on areas that may end naturally first, such as the lower corners of the pockets or the elbow crease jackets.
- This process will work differently depending on the quality and color of the dye. You may not be able to completely remove the color from the black leather jacket.
- Chemical methods of darkening your leather jacket may damage and change the color, so check it out first. Apply the remedy to the invisible area of the leather jacket before handling everything.

- Sandpaper can be rough on the leather jacket. Try starting with a hairdryer and work your way up to the sandpaper if you need it. You can go up even with solid sandpaper if you want to create deep scratches.
3) Use a phone brush if you want to create naturally worn spots. Apply a phone brush back and forth and apply a circular motion somewhere on the leather jacket you would like to age. Stroll and monitor the amount of stress it creates on the leather jacket. Do not rub the area too much, or you may pierce the leather jacket.
