Before we know it, Fall is here and the leather jacket season is upon us. But prior to the season sneaking up on us, we have to inspect that the stored leather jacket is free from mildew spots.
Should you find yours with mildew spots, do you know how to remove it?
First, you have to take the jacket outside and brush off those surface mildew. If your jacket is a natural color leather and it is smooth, you can mix equal parts of water and denatured alcohol and dip a cotton cloth to the solution then wring the cloth out well. You can then dab over the mildew spots and air-dry the jacket. Should you find that the mildew spot is stubborn, you can try a germicidal soap.
When leather jacket season is over, ensure that you spray the jacket with a mildew inhibitor (you can get this from shoe repair shops) and thoroughly dry the jacket before storing.
