There are certain techniques that will help you ironing or pressing your leather jacket without causing damage to the same.

For that, we need to buy a good quality press, which helps in automation of heat and has automatic constraints. Leather jackets need to be ironed at low steam or low heat.
Step 2: Don’t put the iron directly – Leathers are more prone to burning or getting cramped through iron or press. So don’t directly put the iron to the surface of the leather jacket rather first put a cotton cloth and move the press or iron over it. This will help in adjusting or absorbing the extra heat by the cloth and give the jacket a soothing effect and easy ironing.
Step 3: Always flatten the jacket while ironing or pressing – Do flatten the surface of the jacket and unbutton it. Buttoning the jackets creates a hindrance while ironing. As iron gets stacked to the buttons & there is a chance of buttons falling apart.
Step 4: Use heavy lifts to flatten the jackets – Here heavy lifts don’t mean the literal heavy objects but the articles like heavy books. It flattens the leather jacket and helps in moving the iron over the surface of the leather in an easy manner.
Step 5: Make sure the collars are not wrinkled – Collars are the main part of any clothing. But it doesn’t remain the way it should remain even after ironing or pressing it. Make sure you don’t miss the collars.
