Removing Gum from Leather Bombers and Other Useful Tips!
When you have an investment, you take every step necessary to protect your investment. When you have leathers of any type and style, you have made an investment in time, money, and effort. To protect what you hold dear, learning great ways to keep your investment in tip top shape will be useful as well as interesting. Leather bombers are a popular type of jacket on the market today that will be made better with the advice and tips below.
First, you have to understand that cleaning leathers in general can be a risky proposition. Treated leathers can loose color or fade if attacked with the nearest household solvents guaranteeing to clean that jacket for you. It is also important to remember that you cannot always use the same tips for cleaning your leather bombers as you would for your favorite couch of similar material. Finally, if you are still not sure about how to clean your bomber, consider seeking the advice or services of a professional cleaner. These are easily found in the yellow pages of a local phone directory.
Oh no, your favorite jacket is smelling funky. After closer inspection, you notice unsightly mildew. What can you do?
The answer is so simply you will be amazed! Use one part water mixed with one part rubbing alcohol. Get yourself a white, clean cloth. Now use the cloth to gently rub the vinegar water solution onto the mildew. Allow to dry, and polish if necessary. You can also add some lavender scent to kill that awful vinegar odor if you desire.
So you have a 3-year old that went crazy with an ink pen. After realizing he was a little too quiet, you investigate the silence only to discover he has found your favorite bomber. Now you have not so artistic ink blots all over your favorite jacket. There is help!
Believe it or not, you can usually take care of this with simple hairspray. Simply spray the area with hairspray. You choose which brand or type – it doesn’t matter. Let it sit for a few moments, and then wipe off with a clean, white cloth. Sometimes, ink stains require professional help. Having a local cleaner’s number on hand is always a great idea.
Many people like to chew gum, but gum on your leather bombers is no cakewalk. So what can you do if you get gum lodged firmly on your jacket, pants, or shirts? There is help!
Believe it or not, the best trick with gum is to get it cold so that it is solid and brittle. Ice cubes in a bag will generally do the trick. Run the ice bag over the gum, and the simple peel the gum away. Nothing could be easier. If the gum trick isn’t doing it, try using a blow dryer on low heat to get it moist and wipe with a clean, white cloth.
When it comes to caring for your leather bombers, you will find you get more out of your jacket with everyday household items. Of course, having a cleaner’s number close by is a good idea as well.
