Re: Getting leather jacket wet?
Don't dry the wet leather jacket in heat -- like, over a radiator.
I have a perforated white leather jacket, which shows dirt very well. So I researched cleaning and conditioning. The consensus seemed to be that, when you need to clean and condition motorcycle leathers, Lexol is the brand to use.
Lexol makes a couple of formulas for conditioning the kind of leather in a motorcycle jacket. The formula to use on light-colored leather (and, as far as I know, dark colored leather, too) is Lexol nf. The company makes cleaning wipes for leather, too -- they pop out of a plastic can, just like diaper wipes do.
I bought both last week. So far, I've used only the cleaning wipes and not the conditioner. The brand-new Dainese jacket doesn't seem to need it, and probably won't for a long time.
