Stinky leathers

So I was sittin in front of the computer yesterday and I suddenly realized that I hadnt hung up my leathers from 2 weeks ago and let them air out. So I pulled them out of the bag and !! They stunk.

I threw them over the trunk of the '64 in the garage. Anything I can put in them to defunk them a little bit?

i usually rub down the inside with some bounce sheets...then store some sheets in there too..although I'm sure febreeze works the same.

or get some leathers with a removable liner...i think i may look into that myself

I clean my own leathers, it's very easy if you have a large tub (can be purchased from any feed store)- or heck, I guess a bathtub may work too. I use a galvanized tub.

During the summer, I soak the leathers in the tub with some leather conditioner after every 2 or 3 track days to "de-salt" them. After soaking about 4 or 5 hours, I hang them and rinse them off with a hose, spray leather conditioner on them, and let them dry.

Once per year I send my leathers off to Spyder Leatherworks for all repairs and thorough cleaning.

If you don't have the means to soak and hang your leathers now, the Fabreeze anti-microbial formula works like a charm
