Mold on leathers

My leather jacket got drenched last Friday and now it has mold growing on and possibly IN it. Any suggestions on how to take care of this problem? Or should I just take it to a leather professional (references anyone?) and have them clean/disinfect it?

I had this problem too on my brand new never used alpinstar leather pants because the dorms rooms on base where damp and humid as . I used Lysol wipes to wipe them down and then stored them in my truck. Makes sure what ever u use to test spot it first so it doesnt ruin ur leather...

cycle gear has leather cleaner

Motorcycling in itself is not inherently dangerous. But to an even greater degree than the sea, it is terribly unforgiving of any carelessness, incapacity or neglect.

If it has a mesh liner I would take that out and hand wash it then use some type of lysol wipes on the inside and leather cleaner on the outside!

Washing machine, cold water, 1/4 the amount of normal detergent.
On heavy hanger to air dry for a couple days. Good as new...

should not have let it set up wet for so long,

put it in the sun to dry ASAP when it gets wet, but since its raining that may be a while, so put the jacket over the back of a chair as opened up as possible then put a fan to blow on it over night, turn it inside out and do it again if need be.
