Leather Jacket Care Guide

Ultimate Guide to Leather Jacket Care: Dos and Don'ts

Maintaining your leather jacket is essential to ensure it lasts a lifetime and remains as stunning as the day you bought it. Here's a simple, easy-to-read list of dos and don'ts for leather jacket care that will keep your investment piece in prime condition.


  1. Clean Regularly: Wipe your jacket with a soft cloth to remove surface dust. For deeper cleaning, especially for white leather, gently use leather cleaning wipes or alcohol-free wet wipes.

  2. Condition the Leather: Apply a leather conditioner every 6-12 months to prevent drying and cracking. This helps maintain the leather's flexibility and shine.

  3. Hang Properly: Always use a wide, padded hanger to keep your jacket's shape. Avoid folding it to prevent creases and distortions.

  4. Store in a Cool, Dry Place: Keep your leather jacket in a well-ventilated area away from direct sunlight and heat sources which can cause the leather to fade and deteriorate.

  5. Treat Stains Immediately: Blot spills and stains gently with a clean cloth. Avoid rubbing, which can embed the stain deeper into the leather.


  1. Don’t Wash in Water: Never throw your leather jacket in the washing machine. Water can strip the natural oils from the leather, causing it to become stiff and brittle.

  2. Avoid Excessive Heat: Never use a hairdryer or place your jacket near a radiator. High heat can dry out and crack the leather.

  3. Skip the Plastic Bag: Never store leather in a plastic bag which can cause mold and mildew. Opt for a breathable fabric cover instead.

  4. Limit Use of Harsh Chemicals: For white leather, particularly avoid harsh chemicals and moisture as they can cause discoloration and damage. Stick to products specifically designed for leather care.

  5. Ignore Humidity: Avoid storing your jacket in damp, humid areas as moisture can promote the growth of mold and mildew.
