How to wash the inside of a fake leather jacket

Whether you choose fake leather instead of natural leather, you’ll be pleasantly pleased to find it’s usually easy to clean. Even garments that are lining up can be clean at home.

You can often hand-wash the garment at home if you are unsure about machine washing, so take time to read the care label before starting to wash.

The right way to wash the fake jacket is to use the correct water temperature, detergent, and gentle, brisk stirring. Leather jackets, leggings, or leather skirts can be hand-washed or machine-washed.

1. Remove stains before washing

To remove the stain first, use a gentle, mild, smooth, soft cloth or cotton swab, blot the area with a bit of isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) and start work from the outside edge of the stain toward the centre to prevent it from becoming large. When the stain is removed, wipe the area with a cloth dipped in plain water.

2. Tip to hand wash

Now start washing the garment by hand. It is recommended to use cool to warm water with some washing-up liquid. Wring the cloth out, so it does not flutter wet and wipe over. Follow up by drying off with a soft cloth such as a microfiber cloth; start by rubbing off any dirt with a dry cloth. Then, moisten the cloth with water and washing detergent; a mild detergent is best for fake leather, then squeeze out any excess moisture. IT stops general wear and tear and everyday marks from building up and making the surface look grubby.
Another way to hand wash is to add the detergent to the water and swish your hand around, so it distributes evenly.

3. Reduce wrinkling while Machine Wash

If machine-wash, place the garment in a mesh bag for extra care and turn the garment inside out so that the washing liquid or detergent and water solution can reach the interior surface easily as the inside of the garment due to body oils of the fake leather is the most soiled. And reduce the speed for the final spin cycle to reduce wrinkling.

4. Wash in a Sink

Fill the sink with cool to warm water. Never use hot water, which can cause the fake leather to become misshapen or even melt.

5. Coldwater used to Rinse

Always use a cold water rinse in the washer until no suds remain. Excessive detergent left on the faux leather can cause it to stiffen and crack. Do not add any fabric softener.

6. Use a hanger to dry

Always hang jackets, Skirts, and pants inside out on a sturdy hanger to allow them to drip-dry or dry flat on absorbent towels. It can take up to 24 hours. To speed drying time, frequently turn items that are dried flat.

7. Tip to prevent the wrinkles

To prevent cracking and peeling and help remove wrinkles. When the garment is dry, use a tiny amount of coconut, baby, or olive oil on a soft cloth to condition the fake leather. This will keep the fake leather limber.

8. Avoid steam

You’ll need to put extra care while working with it. Don’t steam the fake leather, as it is a type of artificial leather. Otherwise, the direct heat will cause damage. And press it on a low heat setting. Always give it some time to cool down before you wear it.
