Follow the label’s directions and read it carefully before washing your pants. If they say “Dry Clean Only” or something similar, then you should consider taking them to a professional cleaner for further Instructions

A machine wash will generally suffice if there is no specific instruction about how delicate/commercial washes need handled; however most labels contain information on both gentle measures as well as harsh ones so this shouldn’t be too much trouble!

( If your pants don’t have a label or you cut it off by accident or voluntarily and you know the manufacturer you can contact them for cleaning advice or contact customer support )

*One of the most important things to remember about leather pants is that they don’t like being wet. So before you put them in any cleaning process, it’s a good idea to test whether or not your favorite pair will tolerate water by applying some damp cloth on an less noticeable area and wait for any change – if there are none then proceed with confidence!

Turn your pants inside out, add a small amount of color-safe liquid detergent ( and nothing else ! ). Select “delicate” washing cycle and set the water temperature to cold. If you can choose the spin speed, select the slowest one.

( For some extra protection you can put your pants in a garment bag and then put it in the washing machine, this helps to minimize the wear on the leather )

*If you don’t like using the washing machine you can always take a damp microfiber cloth and run through your pants. Just remember to use warm, not hot, water and keep your movements light, don’t scrub.

Ever tried steaming your clothes ?

An especially good way to remove strong odors from your pants, such as smoke, is to steam them.

A simple way to steam your pants, and other clothing items, is to hang them up in your shower, then run the water to warm. The water should not touch the clothes directly, but the steam will.

*You can also buy a steamer for clothes if you prefer.

Post-washing or steaming your pants the best you can do is to lay them down on a dry towel or to place them on a drying rack and let them air dry.

Take care of your pants !
