Leather Lingerie – Caring guide
You’ve bought some nice set Lingerie, so now how do you take it? Leather, being epidermis, needs to have good proper care just as your own epidermis does. By taking some simple steps, your Leather Lingerie should last for many years to come.
The first step in caring for your Leather Lingerie is proper handling and storage. Always shop set in a temperature stable environment, neither too hot nor cool, as this will impact the life of the set by dehydrating out the sebum in the hide. Prevent exposing your set apparel to warm or sunshine for a long period for the reasons just mentioned. Also, do not shop your set Leather Lingerie in moist, wet places or plastic bags, as the build-up of wetness can cause mold (mold) to form, which is difficult to fresh. Either hang set apparel on wooden or cushioned hangers or carefully fold them to prevent wrinkles and wrinkles. Fragrances or deodorants should be applied and permitted to dry before putting on your Leather Lingerie to decrease alcohol and other substances contact with the set and to aid in avoiding discoloration. Sweating or any perfume and/or deodorant should be wiped off as soon as possible with a wet cloth or sponge, and then the set should be permitted to dry naturally.
Unless your Leather Lingerie acquires serious stains, requiring professional washing, you can fresh your set apparel yourself. An excellent cleaner is “Murphy’s Oil Soap”, which performs wonderfully and is gentle on set, due to it being ph balanced. To fresh, work up a lather of the Murphy’s with a wet cloth or sponge and rub carefully into the set, paying more attention to heavier much dirty places. Then rinse the cloth or sponge well and clean the set fresh with the wet cloth or sponge. You may have to repeat in places that are more much dirty.
Try not to get the set too wet, as that may cause it to contract when it gets dry. One thing you may notice while washing is some lifting of the dye – this is normal and is simply unwanted dye. It should not impact the color of the clothing. Allow the set to air dry thoroughly, away from warm or sunshine for about 24 hrs. After that time, the set may feel a bit firm and will need a light covering of set refresher. One of the best set conditioners is “Passer Lederbalsam”. It’s easy to carry out (a finger performs best!) and is uniquely developed for fine set products – it also won’t rot the stitching.
Never use neat’s-foot, mink or other like sebum as they will make the set over-oily and weak, inviting mold to set in. Use a thin covering of the Lederbalsam to the set and let it sit for several hours to allow the absorption of the refresher. Wipe off any unwanted with a fresh, dry soft cloth and you’re done. It would be best to allow the set to sit until the next day before use to make sure the entire refresher has saturated in and the set is “dry”.
For washing of Leather Lingerie that has material incorporated into the design, you can fresh the clothing by carefully hand-washing it in cool normal water using “Pepede”. is uniquely developed for this purpose and is designed to not only fresh the material and set, but also not strip the set of its essential sebum. After carefully rinsing, lay the wet clothing on a fresh, dry terrycloth towel; roll it up, then media to squeeze the normal water out of the clothing. Never try to wring the normal water out of the leather!! You’ll probably need several towels to media as much of the wetness out of the set as possible. Since you’ve gotten the set saturated, the set will have a tendency to contract as it gets dry. The best way to prevent this is to wear the clothing as it gets dry (you don’t have to put it on while it’s still quite wet, just while it’s still damp). After dehydrating if the set feels firm, do as instructed previously given to condition the set. Never use a washing machine to fresh Leather Lingerie. Also, set shouldn’t be dry-cleaned as the substances used cause the set to dry out and crack.
These proper care guidelines carry out to all top feed (smooth surface) set products. Suede would be handled and stored the same way, but not washed and conditioned. Suede requires different washing methods not covered in this article. Certain set is cared for the same way as top feed set, but doesn’t need conditioning due to the lacquer used to seal it and give it the shiny look.
