With these tips, you will have a lot of fun with your jacket:

Impregnate

To make your jacket more resistant to water, you should first impregnate it – a silicone polymer spray or an acrylic copolymer spray protect the appearance of the leather and let it shine. Greasy or wax-based products, on the other hand, protect them better, but are less suitable for jackets as they have a potential impact on the color, shine and smell of the jacket. So that your jacket always remains in top form, you should repeat the impregnation every few weeks until every few months. It is also important to know that impregnation does not make the products completely water-repellent – many products claim it, but you should be careful.

Then take a sponge or other soft cloth and rub a little of the leather cleaner.

Conditioning

Natural animal oils are particularly gentle as conditoners, but these can color the jacket somewhat darker – products, in which wax or silicone contain are cheaper and do not discolor strongly, but can dry the leather. Also, never use any care products containing petroleum or petroleum, which can damage the leather. Be careful with suede or nubuck jackets – here you should be careful, if your leather care product is generally suitable.

Dry

Many do not have much thought when their leather jacket gets wet from rain or snow. Finally, our skin and also of cows tolerates quite well, so what is going wrong? The problem is not the water – the natural oils of the leather come to the surface and if they are evaporated or washed away, the leather can become dry, stiff and brittle. If your jacket gets wet, let it dry in the air, use conditioner and apply it every few hours so it does not stiffen. Do not pack the jacket in the closet as long as it is not completely dry – leather is prone to mold.
