You Know Those Leather Pants You Have? You Can Wash Them In The Machine

Here’s a PSA. You can wash your leather pants in the washing machine. Earlier this year when we got our J Brand skinny leather pants (now a classic! There we’ve called it) a friend said, “You can wash those in the machine, you know.” Naturally, we were shocked and suspicious. All those expensive years of leather dry cleaning were for nothing? Well, turns out yes, yes they were. We subsequently discovered several special detergents out there specifically for machine washing leather, but we just use regular old Gain and a cold-wash cycle. Take them out and air dry. Perfect. We’ve washed them so many times and they still look and feel super soft, and most of all they smell like fresh laundry and are CLEAN. Life-changing.
