Yes, there are cleaners that specialise in leather and suede. Look it up in the internet. I have taken my leather jackets to the one in Lake Jackson but I usually pack them up for the summer with a Febreze towell until its time to take them out. More power to you guys wearing leathers in 110 heat with 105% humidity. I will not do it and Kevlar jeans and mesh jacket are my riding cloths pretty much year round here. I had to give up my Harley boots, they fell apart after a few months of riding. things were made in China, go figure.

It will shorten the life of the garment if you do that. It will also cause the leather to rot in some instances where you do not get all of the detergent out. Again, its just my opinion but there are cleaners that can make em look like new and will stain them if needed.

Here you go if you are determined to wash it yourself

If you want to give a simple touch-up to your leather jacket, make use of a light cloth and a light spray cleaner. It will help get the dust off the shell of the jacket.
Mix 3-1/3 cups olive oil, 1/3 cup castile soap, 40-60 drops essential oil and 8-12 drops grapefruit seed extract in a gallon jug and add 1/2 gallon. Mix well and store the mixture in a spray bottle. Use the solution, along with a cloth, to clean the stains on your leather jacket.
Using a damp sponge or towel, along with a bit of saddle soap, wipe your jacket. Polish the jacket with a clean, dry towel for giving it a soft, clean and smooth feel.
To prevent stains and cracking on your jacket, use an all-purpose leather cleaner. Apply on to a towel or rag, to clean your jacket.
Take some leather conditioner on a cloth and wipe the jacket with it, to prevent cracks.
Use white vinegar, along with a tad of water, to clean stains on suede jackets. Air-dry the jacket a day before using, it to remove the vinegar smell.
While cleaning suede jackets, always use a suede brush or a terry cloth towel. This will keep the jacket clean and raise the nap.
Another effective way to remove stains on your jacket is by using a white pencil eraser.
In case you have any salt deposits on your leather jacket, the best way to clean the same is by sponging the jacket with clean water.
Some jackets are made of brushed leather. In such a case, brushing with mohair brush or even an old-fashioned shoe brush will get you the desired result.
If your jacket is made of processed leather, like the one in motorcycle and aviation jackets, plain soap and water will work just fine.
In case you end up dripping something on your leather jacket, remove the spill immediately, with a gentle brush. After that, use warm water and a mild soap to sponge the area gently.
Tips
Never ever use waxes, silicone formulas or other leather preparations on your leather jacket.
Do not clean your leather jacket with something that contains alcohol, turpentine or mineral spirits.
If case of major stains or cleaning, it is better to go to a professional cleaner.

Yea, or you can just use saddle soap (follow the directions) on the exterior.

1. Do you know what a logo is?
2. How many gay colleges have you applied to?
3. I can't help that Texas is your daddy
4. If you ride better than that weak sauce smack you just posted maybe you'd like to join a select few of us for a ride Saturday morning.

I would love to ride with you but I am waiting for a rubber exhaust mount from Triumph. It should be here soon but I cannot commit until it does. Its the one that goes under the frame in the center, it did not get returned when JetHot sent my pipes back. On the other issue, I finished college the first time over 25 years ago. The only gay colleges back then were.....Oh yeah, UT. LOL Nothing much changes.

Don't you think it's about time you and your "university" came out of the closet? I can understand your shame and abiding by "don't ask, don't tell" and keeping your school and sexual preferences a secret. FYI, I've had season football tickets for 20 years and a degree for a little longer

Oh, the first time was Brazosport and the second time was U of H, here in Houston. No gays but lots of hot women. I was in my early 30s after going thru a divorce. Single with a good job and owned my own house. I was riding a Katana back then and drove a 93 Mazda Rx7 for a box. near rubbed my belly button off having hetero for those single years. Hope you get to try that sometimes. Not going to school,.........having hetero (as I slink away and go to bed)

BTW, you sound like we are the same age. 49 this December.
