When it comes to conditioners which contain oil, there is some controversy around the matter, because some of them can actually be harmful for the leather. However, many homemade recipes require olive oil or vinegar, due to the fact that this can help clean the jacket in an efficient way. If used in the wrong quantities, it could damage the jacket, but the good part is that some other types of oil, such as lemon oil or coconut oil, can turn out to be very good for the jacket. Lemons are good for your health in many areas of your life, while coconut oil is a hypoallergenic. It means that it won't cause you any allergic reaction and thus it certainly won't damage your leather jacket.
How do you create the paste made of lemons and olive? All you need are 3-4 spoons of juice, 1/4 cup of olive oil, tea tree oil and some paper tissues. First, dip the paper towel into the olive oil, then into the lemon juice and keep doing this until you have cleaned the whole leather jacket. You could add the tea tree oil to all this and it will add an extra touch of spark. Because leather looks amazing when it is luscious!
How do you apply it? First of all, you should gently massage your jacket with a cloth. Do not apply too much of it, as it might spoil the jacket, so be careful with it. When the oil is used in the right quantity, it will actually give the jacket a very nice and fresh look and scent.
Another type of olive oil homemade product is one made out of olive oil, castile soap, essential oil, grapefruit seed extract and water. After getting this mixture, it is best to shake this up and fill a spray bottle with it. The dense structure of oil should get softened by the castile soap, the essential oil, the grapefruit seed extract and the water. Spray on the jacket and watch it get getting shiny, new and freshly conditioned.
Leather jacket conditioning with oil is a DIY solution and it can actually work pretty well. You have to watch out at certain issues, such as staining your jacket by using too much oil, but, at the end of the day, it will be great for your wardrobe and you will have great results if you apply this DIY tip.
