Question Tips for cleaning leather suit - July 15, 2010, 10:46 PM

My 1 piece suit is pretty scuffed up and dirty, and I would like to try to get it as clean as possible again. I know I could send it to someone like Barnacle Bill, but what can I do just to get it clean inside and out again?

To get the deep soaked sweat salt out I go to a laundrymat where they have the big ass machines and use this stuff

You can also do it in the bathtub putting in as much elbow grease as you care to muster.

Hang dry inddors where the AC lowers humidity.

I use Honda polish and a soft bristled tooth brush for my leather jacket. But that's smaller spots, mostly.

I did mine after that second Summit supermoto day by just hanging the suit from a tree branch in the yard. Then I just hosed it down, gently wiped down the outside, and really hosed down for a while to remove salt from sweat. The trick then is to get the suit dry as fast as you can with ambient temp air. Put a fan or two on it and prop it open so the inside dries quickly. Then you have to recondition the leather once it's dry.

The single best thing to do for leather is take a shower before putting it on.
