Your furs are not a material that can be washed in a washer. You will need to take it to your local leather and fur store for proper cleaning once to twice per year. This will get all of the dirt and debris embedded within the fur out. Scents that will also be removed. Once your fur coat has been cleaned, glazing will help bring back its life. Glazing will add in the necessary oils that help your furs keep their gorgeous luster.

Prepping for Storage

As you wind down your winter furs for the warmer weather, it is important to store them properly. This will help keep it healthy and safe. First, make sure you keep it in a cool room with low humidity. Air circulation is key. When there is heat and high humidity in a room or closet you are storing your furs, it will make the fibers expand and contract. This can cause damage over time. Also, having some humidity in the room will help your furs from drying out. Last, the storage space should also be dark as the sun’s UV rays can damage it, too. Be sure to learn more about how to care for natural fur coats to ensure their safety during the summer.

Leather Jackets for Spring

Leather is a breathable material, which will keep you warm outdoors, but not stuffy while indoors. It’s also trendy to find the perfect accessories for your Denver leather jacket, such as oversized bags, clutches, sunglasses, or shoes. Make sure to keep your new leather jacket in a healthy environment for its vitality. Keep it away from sunlight and in a cool environment. It is also helpful to add conditioner once a season to keep it from drying out. For spills and stains, use the lowest amount of water possible. Too much water on a jacket will ruin it. Take a damp washcloth and wipe the spot. Anything major should be taken care of by leather professionals.
