Properly cleaning a white leather jacket normally requires a professional cleaner. However, there are ways you can keep your jacket clean at home. If you get a stain on your jacket, it’s a good idea to treat it as soon as possible. Not all stains can be removed, but you may be able to clean the leather with a few simple household products.
Items you will need
- White toothpaste
- Nail polish remover
- Aerosol hairspray
- Clean cloth
Gently squeeze a small strip of regular white toothpaste onto the stain. Rub it in lightly with a clean cloth. Gently rub it off. This method can work on all types of stains
Apply non-acetone nail polish remover to remove ink stains. Dab some onto a clean cloth and rub it gently onto the stained area of your jacket. Gently rub it off with the cloth.
Apply aerosol hairspray to a tough stain that isn’t responding to the other two methods. Spray hairspray onto the stained area of the jacket. Wipe off the hairspray with a clean cloth. Repeat several times as needed.
