Well, bloom or spew is a, a chalky-looking, has a chalky-looking appearance on top of the leather, and in a lot of cases, you can, just by rubbing, you know, alleviate the bloom. It's, it's something that is cause from kind of an imbalance of the tanning process and it appears on the leather. Sometimes you can have good luck with a antibacterial wipe and simply, you know, wipe off every inch of the leather garment and you'll see it's a, it's coming off fairly well. There is although a chance that it's going to reappear. And so, you may have to repeat these steps and, and do it over and over again.

But, this is a, a good point to start and generally, you know, if the leather remains warm, it won't, it won't come back. But, the antibacterial wipe helps in the process, not just the dampness from the wipe, but the antibacterial helps to stabilize the bloom. So, that's how to remove bloom from leather.
