Tip of the Day : 27 June

Remove creases from leather

To remove creases from a leather jacket, one of the easiest ways is to hang the garment in the doorway through which flows a lot of air and let it there 24h or 48h.
If indeed the creases are still there, we can take an iron, put it not too hot and without water. We then took a white cloth, we put it on the garment and we iron the leather jacket through the cloth, making sure the temperature of the iron is not too high.
