Style For Style: Freeing Leather of Wrinkles

undefined

Before ordering my new favorite faux leather jacket, I had never thought of ways to get wrinkles out of leather. It was only when the box arrived, and I found my poor jacket wrinkled from being packed so tightly, that I felt the need.

With Fall upon us and leather items, like this Kenna-T Leather Mini Skirt ($264), being major must haves, it's important to know how to free them of the ugly wrinkles they get.


To learn how I freed my leather jacket of wrinkles,

.

Since you can't iron leather, I put my brain to use. A light bulb went off and I ran for the dryer. I turned the temperature to the lowest setting possible (I didn't want to start a fire) and threw my leather jacket in for a one-minute spin. When I took it out, it was considerably less wrinkly. Fabulous. I put it in for another 30 seconds to get the last of the creases out. Feel free to use this technique on any leather item that becomes wrinkly. Just make sure you don't leave it in for too long, as you don't want your leather to melt!

Also useful, if you're both careful and patient, is a hairdryer. Smooth the wrinkled item flat, and work a hairdryer on medium, about 2" from the surface, in circles. Every couple minutes, use your hands to smooth the area over. This works well on things that you don't want to risk the dryer with (vintage!), and it helps when you've got something smaller to smooth out. Also, if you go the dryer route, throw a towel or two in with it. It helps with the clanging, and it keeps whatever you're trying to smooth out from getting wedged into one little spot against the paddles on the tumbler. (PSST: both these tricks work on regular clothes, double-quick if you throw a damp washcloth in with any fabric you're trying to not-iron!)
