Hi, my name is Bruce Gershon with Arrow Leathercare, and today we're going to talk about removing wrinkles from your leather jacket. First of all, there are different types of wrinkles. There are the wrinkles that come from poor packaging or maybe it was hanging wrong on the hanger for a period of time. There are natural wrinkles in a lot of leather that are in the skin that you may not be able to totally remove at all. There are other wrinkles that maybe if it's been in the trunk of your car for a period of time and the wrinkles are really hard and you may not be able to do anything with it. But let's talk about for the simple poor packaging wrinkles or it was hanging on the hanger bad, all you need is some, a piece of brown craft paper, you smooth the garment out on a flat surface, ironing board works great, an iron at a medium setting, take the area that you want to press, smooth it out nice, place the brown paper over that and the iron right on the brown paper, keep it moving, no steam. Steam will burn the leather and permanently damage it and we'll just see how we do here moving the iron, keeping everything nice and smooth and flat because you can actually iron a wrinkle in worse than what you started with and see how we did, oh not bad. So that's how to remove wrinkles from a leather jacket, just different areas, make sure you smooth them out, use your brown paper, medium setting, no steam and that's all for that today. I'm Bruce Gershon. Thanks for watching.
