I have a alpine star leather. The only way to clean it as far as the label is just to wipe it down with a soapy wash rag. My jacket says to not wash it, dry clean it, or any other way of washing it.

You can throw it in the washing machine as long as it's on a very gentle cycle. It won't hurt it all at. Hang to dry.

Gentle cycle in a washer. Front loader is the most gentle. Do not put it in the dryer. Be sure and remove any armor.

Leather, textile, mesh, in the washer sans armor, woolite, spin cycle twice to get the water all out, drier no heat for a hour, lie flat with a hanger propping the bottow and sleeves open with a fan blowing in it, once dry apply conditioner of your choice. Mesh and textile I dry on low heat.

Absolutely NEVER had any problems. I did the same with my race leathers for
15+ years. Use a conditioner with the leather and don't be stingy. Slather it up good and let the jacket sit for a day with the conditioner before wiping it down.

be SURE to remove all the padded armor before washing.

and use a front loading washer on gentle cycle.

bath tub, with a little baby shampoo in the water, no hot water

just fill it up, throw it in, let it sit for 20 min, mix it around a little till, drail & dry.

at least for textile or mesh this works great, I do my lid like this too, gloves, knee pads...

My jacket says to Wash in cool water.

Anyone tried OxiClean on their Textile / Mesh Jackets.

Its funny, i was telling myself yesterday to wash both jackets this weekend. I'm in the same boat with Kalanie, i need something for my white jacket.

I have a white mesh Rocket UFO jacket I have washed it two or three times in the washer like Bevo says and not had a problem. I remove all the armor and use the regular detergent just not very much and put it on the delicate/ hand wash setting with a second spin cycle. Then hang to dry.
