Has anyone sent their leathers off for cleaning? I've had my Dainese for a few years now and other than cleaning the outside (cleaning bugs off and treating), I've not done anything with em. Can local cleaners do anything, or should they be sent to someone who regularly cleans motorcycle gear? I've read that sweat can start to adversely affect the leather if it's not cleaned every once in a while. Thoughts?

Lexol cleaner first, then Lexol conditioner. You should be able to pick it up at a parts store (pep boys etc). I use it on my furniture, leathers, and when I had cage leather interior, on it too :smilebig:

I think he might be talking about the inside of the leathers :huh:

I work with a guy whose Dad owns a dry cleaning business. He said they can do dress leather (Ie: coats, jackets & pants) and he figures a leather suit would be easy. Not cheap, but easy.

I know that Barnacle Bill advertises in Roadracing world in the want ad section every month: "We clean most suits for $50."

I guess it varies depending on how uh, soiled the leathers are, exactly....

Anyone know what type of cleaning that is? And does the $50 include shipping it back to you?

Princess' brother owns a couple of dry cleaners (and is a leather specialist), and I was talking to him about cleaning leathers last week.

I send mine back to Zs every other season and they clean and return the suit (prepaid) for 75.00. They usually reset the internal velcro and padding and clean up all the sponsor patches that are getting ragged in the process.
