Washing and dry cleaning leather

The cleaning of leather clothing can be done either by a specialized dry cleaning company or at home.

Soiling caused by sweat or normal dirt on specific areas can lead to customers seeking specialist help. "Grease and sweat marks on the collar" or soiled sleeve cuffs are typical on leather clothing. Occasionally, leather clothing may require localised cleaning to combat fading. In such cases, it is not a "cleaning" in the classical sense, but specialized leather cleaners can also be used to carry out colouring work.
