Jacket cleaning question?

so i had my wife take my Joe Rocket jackets to a local cleaners, its mesh and has leather as well. well they told her that since it has leather they would have to send it out to have the leather treated and cleaned or something like that. either way they said it would be a lil over a week till they would receive it back. is this done by most cleaners? does anyone know of a cleaner near katy that will take the jacket and not have to send it out of town to have it done? wanting my jacket back in a few days to ride the weekend. just a lil worried that my jacket will get lost or something.. any advise is great.

thanks

What the ? You can clean leather yourself. I'm with you, I'd rather pay a professional to do it, but being that I am technically capable of doing it on my dining room table, I'd be very skeptical of a cleaning place that couldn't do it.

I used to use saddle soap to clean my leathers. Water hose was used when the love bugs come out in droves. Then I would finish them up with saddle soap and conditioner.

You're cleaning your jacket??? Are you a girl?

Seriously, if it's leather, like others said, saddle soap and do it yourself. I buy mine at TSC, but you can get it most places.

Put it in the washer machine, use very light soap and use the lightest setting.

Hang dry

Nesto has a good lead and the OP is just being responsible with his investments. Nothing wrong with letting a professional do what they are skilled to do. And if they it up, they are totally responsible to replace it. Most cleaners are not equipped to clean leathers, you might want to call some upholstery cleaners next time too, or google them on your smart phone.
