To get the most out of your light brown leather jacket, you’ll need to dedicate some attention to proper upkeep. This is key to preserving and extending the life of your jacket. Be sure to review our articles for details on how to care for wet or stained leather. You can also shop our leather care products for our premium, easy-to-use cleaner and conditioner. Check out these 5 basic steps to cleaning your light brown leather jacket:

*Always spot-check each step before proceeding with the full jacket!

1. Lightly dust. 

Gently wipe away any dust or oil buildup using a soft cloth in a light circular motion.

2. Prepare cleaning solution.

*If your jacket isn't excessively dirty, skip to step 4.

Mix two teaspoons of mild liquid detergent with warm water to create a gentle cleaning solution that can be used on your leather jacket without causing abrasions or other damage.

3. Gently clean.

Soak a soft sponge or cloth in your mild soap solution until it is saturated, then wring it out so it’s damp, but not soaking wet. The key to this cleaning approach is to use as little moisture as possible.  Lightly blot the leather to avoid leaving watermarks, and remember to feather your blots. Do not rub or scrub!

4. Wipe down.

Remove soap residue by wiping down with a clean cloth saturated with a small amount of clean water. (Remember to use the smallest amount of moisture needed.) Then, pat the leather with a soft, dry towel, and hang the jacket somewhere cool until it is completely dry. Do not use direct heat (like a hair dryer or direct sunlight) to try to speed up the drying time.

5. Remember the inside!

The soap solution used for cleaning the outside of your leather jacket can also be used to clean the inside. Remember that cleaning the inside of your jacket is as important as preserving the outside; sweat on the interior of the jacket can eventually break down the lining and compromise that gorgeous light brown leather. To clean the inside, turn the jacket inside-out, and use a soft sponge or cloth and the same mild soap solution. Pay close attention to the cuffs, collar, and underarms, and then hang the jacket to dry in a cool, dry area. (Do not use direct heat.)


How do you store leather jackets?

You probably won’t be storing your leather jacket a whole lot because you’ll be wearing it everywhere! But seasonally, it’s normal to store it for a while. (Storing it properly will help keep the leather healthy and the jacket in good shape.)

  1. Clean it first. (Simply follow the steps outlined above.)
  2. Stuff the insides of your leather jacket with acid-free paper. Stuffing the jacket helps to keep its shape, and the acid-free paper helps create a barrier for dust, dirt, and moisture.
  3. Wrap your jacket in a breathable fabric. Do not wrap a leather jacket in plastic, and avoid folding it when you wrap it.
  4. If you have the space, hang the jacket on a wide cedar or padded hanger. (These types of hangers can properly support the shoulders and weight of a leather jacket so that it doesn’t droop during storage. Do not use thin wired or plastic hangers.).  If you don’t have space to properly hang your jacket, you can place it in a wooden (preferably cedar) trunk or even a suitcase. Just like when you are wrapping the jacket, be sure to lay it flat without folds or creases. Additionally, make sure that air can pass in and out of the container. Do not store leather in a plastic container – plastic containers will not allow the leather to breathe.
  5. Protect your leather jacket by storing it in a dry, cool area away from direct sunlight. Exposing a light brown leather jacket to too much UV light or heat can cause the leather to discolor, expand, dry out, or crack. Moisture is also a major cause for concern as it can cause mildew and mold to grow. This means it is extremely important that the place where you store your jacket is not humid. Placing silica gel packets in the jacket pockets can help absorb moisture. And, if you need to store it for an extended period of time (say, longer than 6 months), be sure to air it out occasionally.
