Waterproof leather can be created. Make sure you check the labels carefully before purchasing “leather protectors” or “waterproof leathers”. Read the product label to figure out how long the water-proofing will last. A few weeks or months are usually enough for reapplication of the product.

Although this treatment will make the leather jacket more resistant to water damage, it will not be completely waterproof, even if the treatment claims it is. Keep the Vlone jacket or scar face jacket out of water and out of the washing machine.

You may want to condition leather from time to time. By restoring the skin’s oils, leather conditioners prevent excessive dryness and cracking, but too much can clog pores, resulting in a less durable, more discolored coat.

A leather conditioner should only be applied when the jacket starts feeling hard or dry.

Rarely, Polish leather jackets can be found. You can polish your leather jacket to make it shine, but the polish may discolor it, dry it out, or clog it up. Test new products first in a hidden area, and only use it on special occasions. With a cloth, buff the surface until it is lustrous.

What To Do When Cleaning Leather Jackets

For specific instructions, read the label. Most store-bought coats come with a cleaning instructions label. If you can, follow label directions since there are many types of leather and not all of them can be distinguished easily.  These steps are generally safe to follow if carefully followed, but not every method can be guaranteed to work on all types of leather and on Cactus Jack.

Remove the dust from the jacket with a soft cloth or brush. Depending on how long the leather jacket has been stuffed away, it may need to be dusted. A camel hair brush, a dry cotton cloth, or nubuck cloth will not scratch or damage leather.

Wet the leather to clean it. Put a drop of water on your jacket to test it first. A slightly damp cloth can be used to remove dust from leather if water remains on the surface.  Avoid adding water if the water is absorbed and the leather darkens.

Use a specialized brush or dry sponge to clean the suede. Suede brushes can remove light dirt from suede, but they might scratch other types of leather. If you want to save money, you can try using a dry sponge. This method should not be used on leather that is not suede or that you have not been able to identify.

The chamois might work better if they are hung in a steam room first. A kettle or iron should not be directly used for steaming because of the heat.
