How to clean a leather jacket?

Aylo guys,

This is probably a really dumb question but I've always had textile jackets/pants and I would wash those regularly.


I recently bought a Joe Rocket leather jacket and on my ride in a few minutes ago from the boonies I must have ridden through a storm of bugs out there and I am now absolutely covered in bug . I'm even more furious about my bike that I just washed, she's also covered.

How do you guys wash your leather jackets? By hand? How about the inside? This is my first leather item ever so any thoughts would be appreciated.

Cheers

Any leather cleaner/ conditioner will work for the outside. If it has a liner you can remove to wash it, just follow the cleaning instructions.

I use saddle soap on my leather shoes and belts. Works great.

I've had to hand mine up and use a brush, water hose and soap before. But saddle soap works really well too.

My leather jacket has gotten wet enough times riding in the rain that I didn't hesitate to just throw it in the washer (inside out) with woolite and then hang-dry it and re-condition the leather once dry. Doesn't seem to have negatively affected the leather.
