    The steps to clean a riding jacket:

    The first step to maintain your riding jacket is to clean it regularly. Do not hesitate to shake your jacket regularly to remove the maximum of dust and hairs. Here are the steps to follow:

    • Remove dust: Use a soft brush to remove dust and dirt from your jacket. If your jacket has leather parts, use a brush specially designed to clean the leather parts.

    • Prepare the cleaner: Use a mild cleaner to clean your jacket. Avoid using abrasive cleaners or cleaners containing bleach, as this can damage the fabric or leather parts.

    • Apply the cleaner: Apply the cleaner to a soft cloth and gently rub your riding jacket. For small stains, clean directly on the surface by hand. Avoid rubbing too hard to avoid damaging the fabric or leather.

    • Rinse: Use a damp cloth to rinse the jacket and remove any remaining cleaner. Be sure to remove all of the cleaner to prevent damage to the fabric or leather.

    • Dry: Air dry your riding jacket and avoid machine drying it. Let it air dry.

    If you want to wash your jacket in the washing machine, close all the buttons / velcro / zips, use a delicate cycle at 30°C maximum on the reverse side, using a soft or organic detergent without softener, bleach or detergent.

    How to dry a riding jacket?
