How to clean leather trousers

Leather trousers and other leather clothing must be cleaned in order to preserve the material. Chemicals, oils and other substances can cause any leather to rapidly deteriorate. Leather trousers in particular can be easily stained with salt during the winter in cold climates. Any salt stains should be removed as quickly as possible to avoid damage to the leather. In addition to cleaning, leather must be stored completely dry and in a well-ventilated area. Never seal or enclose leather clothing in plastic.

Things you need

Baby shampoo or other mild cleanerLeather conditioner

Instructions

Stain removal

1 Clean the stain with warm water. Usually salt stains can be removed with just water.

2 Wet the stained area with water and rub baby shampoo into the stain to clean stubborn stains.

3 Rinse the trousers thoroughly with clean water to remove all traces of the cleaner.

4 Gently remove excess water with a soft towel.

5 Air dry the leather trousers completely before storing. Keep the pant legs open to allow air to circulate inside and out to allow complete drying. Never use heat to speed the drying process. Heat can cause the leather to become brittle and crack.
