Hi, I'm Rachel Yatuzis, and I'm going to show you how to remove wrinkles from your leather jackets. The first thing you want to try; if your leather jacket has been stuffed in a closet with a bunch of clothes around it, and it's you know been misshapen, or the sleeve has been tucked like that, or maybe you're like my parents and you have motorcycle clothes that are thrown into a trunk somewhere. Leather does get wrinkled, and it's pretty easy to get wrinkles out of leather actually since it is a heavier material. If you just find an open doorway like this where there's air goin' through front to back, you know; where the jacket's not going to be touchin' any other clothes. If you can just hang it like that where it's not touching anything and let it stay there for a day, maybe two days, the wrinkles should just work their way out by the leather, the weight of itself on the, you know, the jacket it should work, the the wrinkles should work themselves out. If that doesn't work you can try to use an iron. This is a tricky procedure and I would test it first in a inconspicuous place before you try to remove wrinkles on the larger parts of the leather like here on these sleeves. But, if you're going to iron your leather jacket put your iron on the lowest setting possible, and put a rag, a white, clean, lint-free rag in between the iron and your leather. Just do it very, very, very, very, very lightly and then check it, and if you need to do it a little bit more don't let the iron touch the leather at all; only the rag, and don't let it sit on there for too long. I'm Rachel Yatuzis, and that is how you remove wrinkles from leather jackets.
