How To Get Wrinkles Out Of Leather Jacket

If you have ever had a leather jacket in storage, you might be wondering how to get wrinkles out of a leather jacket. A good, high quality leather jacket can last a lifetime, but you don't want to wear it if it is all wrinkled and crumpled. There are ways to get the wrinkles out of a leather jacket which are quite easy to do and do not damage the jacket at all. In fact, you can do this process in a few easy steps.

  1. Hang up your jacket in the bathroom. Let the leather jacket hang while you take a long shower. If the wrinkles are not severe, this will effectively steam the wrinkles out of the jacket. Just make sure that you close the bathroom door so that the steam does not escape.
  2. Use an iron. Lay clean, brown paper over the leather jacket.
  3. Iron over the paper on a very low heat setting.
  4. Remove the paper from the leather jacket. Inspect the jacket to see if there are other areas where you will need to iron out wrinkles.

Most leather jackets attain wrinkles during storage. If you store your jacket correctly, you should not have a problem with wrinkles. Remember to store your leather jacket in a well ventilated environment. Never store a leather jacket in a plastic bag, since the jacket needs to be able to breathe. You should also cover your leather jacket with a cloth while it is in storage to keep it from getting dusty.

By following the steps above, you should easily be able to get wrinkles out of a leather jacket in no time.
