I have a leather jacket. I was thinking about taking it to a dry cleaners that sends their leather cleaning off. Does anybody know about what price range I'm looking at? 30-40? 100-150?

Some cleaners offer leather cleaning. Call around and get a price for your jacket.

If it's mesh, then dump in the machine - gentle and hang to dry.

Leather has to be conditioned regularly - don't wait until you have to clean it. You may not ever be able to get white leather clean. My advice is don't wear it for actual riding - just posing.

I got a textile jacket with leather impact zones. I just stick it in a net bag thingamajig, put it in the washer and hang dry. Make sure to remove all armour from jacket first.

Washed it bout 3 or 4 times like this so far and it's holding up.

If you are unwilling to use the spray-paint, perhaps you could try white-out?

I have a leather jacket with white on it, and I used a paper-towel and dish-washing soap. Not sure if that is a proper method, however. So, do not blame me for any damages that might result from stated method.

I've never washed my leathers before but I did clean the surface area with proper chemicals I read great stuff about Nikwax and bought the cleaner and conditioner special order from CG for about $20. Works great and doesn't impact breathability!

Where to Wash your Jacket?

My white Dainese jacket hasn't been as white since the day I bought it. Even cleaning it every month.

I've jumped in squoddybodys pool in full leathers last year, rode up to conroe then back.

If my gear wants to be clean it better pray its chosen when I'm riding in rain. I don't complain when him gets on the bottom of my shoe, nor if the gear is dirty. Just means I don't need to walk sideways when I go out at night. Grown men are scared of bugs apparently.
