How do you clean leather? I have some older leather jackets and chaps that have mold on them. Is there any way to get them clean?
April from North Henderson, Illinois
My son got blood on a new suede jacket, the dry cleaners here sent it to the city and it came back stained. A native aquaintance said wash it and hang it on the line on a windy day. All the stains came out and it looked great.
Editor's Note: This suggestion should be used with caution. The suede may have been a synthetic (which could be washed). Any washing of leather can change the texture. If you want to try it use only cold water.
Hi April, you might also try, first hang it out in the sun to dry out the mold as much as possible. Then take a soft brush and brush as much of the mold off as you can, and repeat this a few times, until clean.Susan
