Mesh Jackets....

How do I clean my mesh jacket. The tag says to hand wash "not machine wash". Another friend said that the washing machine is ok...just don't want to damage my jacket. Any info will be great.

+1, same with my A* textile.

I'll hang it over a chair to dry.

If you have parts of leather on your jacket you can still wash it, I would just be light on the soap and keep it on perm. Key is to put on leather oil while it is still wet. When it dries, it will be nice and soft. Use some more leather oil, let it soak in overnight and then use some conditioner if you like.

I tried to washed by hands but it is not as clean as the machine. The reason that they say no to machine wash is because the nylon could entangle and damage the jacket. Just don't put it in a dryer as this will make the nylon fuzzies.

I have washed bridles before and riding pants with leather inserts. The leather just gets supersoft.

Racing leathers, I probably wouldn't recommend washing them. Rumor has it that every time they get wet, they lose crashing/abrasion resistance. If you are planning on washing leathers, I'd probably recommend a professional cleaner or take saddlesoap and wash them with a rag by hand. :eh:
