Leather Cleaning (Week 1)

w/e 03/07/17

This is the first week of a three week leather cleaning series, designed to highlight some problems that can occur with leather cleaning and what you may expect when cleaning a skin as opposed to a cloth.
We'll go through the things you should be aware of when considering buying leather or suede clothing. In the second we deal with what you can expect from the cleaner and the third with suites and furniture.
It's often the more fashionable items that cause problems. So, if you're out shopping and like the look of a leather or suede item, here's an idea of the warning signs you should look for that suggest the it might be a problem in either long term wear or cleaning.
Leather & Suede Shrinks & Distorts
This is true both in cleaning and in general wear - so be careful.
  • An item that is figure hugging but made of soft suede or snake skin is likely to develop a bulge where you sit down and stretch the garment over your bum. How might it look if this happens and you stand up?
  • Long sleeves will almost certainly develop a bend at the elbow.
  • Hangers may distort shoulders if too short or too long, especially on heavy or very soft leather.
Colour
Over time the colour of leather and especially suede can be affected by light and cleaning.
  • Vivid colour suede should be avoided if the colour of the garment is the reason you're buying it. In cleaning the colour should be expected to change.
Surface Treatment
Both suede and leather can have surface treatments applied during the tanning process that may not survive a cleaning process that affect the texture of a garment. If this feel or look is the reason for buying then consider that it may not survive a single clean.
  • Leather:- If the surface looks like it has a plastic coating then this is likely to be affected during wear, as it is rubbed away through abraision and during cleaning.
  • Suede:- Finishes that are almost velvet in their feel are likely to have been enhanced during the tanning process. This willnot only give a different feel but also may be hiding scars and tic marks that the skin picked up during the life of the animal. Some are likely to show after cleaning.
Adornments
B
elts, buckles, applied motifs and fringes can make a garment uncleanable. Buckles and chains may have to be expensively removed and then replaced after cleaning, motifs may slip or crack and fringes may distort or even tangle during processing.
Stains
Normal stains and spills that can be removed from fabric sometimes sink far into a leather or suede garment, making it far more difficult to remove. Certain stains can also have a biological reaction with the leather, irreversibly changing it's structure.

For example, if you're buying a light suede item and you want to wear it to work in a pub or bar, then it's likely to get beer and alcohol over it and the stains may not come out.

Cleaning Instructions
Lastly, check that the garment has clear cleaning instructions, if it doesn't there may be no safe way to clean the item - this is especially true when buying leather abroad.

Leather and suede garments should be enjoyed not worried about. Thinking about the few things above will help you assess if a garment is suitable for the purpose you're buying it for.
