Clothing made of such a fabric is very popular among leather lovers. Jackets, skirts, dresses and more. However, the methods of caring for clothes made of this material are somewhat different from the methods for caring for products made of genuine leather.
Bruises that occur on eco-leather items more often than on genuine leather items can become a frequent problem. They are formed due to the structure of the material itself and due to improper storage. Such various creases and bruises can be corrected by proper ironing. In this case, neither dry cleaning nor special methods will be required requiring special physical and material costs.
How to iron eco-leather
An important factor when ironing clothes and products made of this material is compliance with all its features. However, if you do not forget about these features, smoothing clothes will not bring any difficulties. The process is not much different from smoothing other types of tissue.
Temperature mode, steam off
Turn inside out lined products
Perhaps the most important aspect is ironing things from eco-leather on the wrong side. The material consists of several synthetic layers, the upper of which is not very resistant to temperature. Therefore, the smoothing process is performed from the wrong side.
Important! Also on the wrong side you need to test. After passing through it with an iron, you need to make sure that the fabric is not deformed. Only if everything is in order can you continue ironing.
Smoothing a piece of product through double chintz fabric
To further secure the fabric, you can take additional opportunities. On the wrong side, ironing should be done through a layer of double chintz fabric. Thus, you are sure to protect eco-leather from deformation and excessive heat.
In the end turn out, add volume and leave to cool
As has been repeatedly said above, high temperatures are dangerous for products made of eco-leather. Therefore, after the smoothing process, it is required to turn the thing on the front side, manually smooth out all the bumps and leave for a while, so that the thing cools down. At the same time, it is advisable to give the necessary volume so that the tissue remembers it and no longer wrinkles.
How to smooth out eco-leather
The structural features of the fabric allow you to do a lot of manipulations with it, which lead to leveling the surface of the material.
Warm water is perhaps the easiest way. All that is required is to apply warm water to eco-leather things. You can do this with a sponge, or spray it with a spray gun. After wetting, the clothes need to be smoothed and hung to give volume and drying.
You can also use the steam bath. To do this, you need to hang your item in the bathroom out of reach of water and open the faucet with hot water. Thanks to the rising pair, eco-leather clothing will begin to smooth itself. After some time, the clothes must be placed on a hanger and left to dry for a long period of time.
Clothes should be put either on a flat surface or hung on a hanger, while turning inside out. A hair dryer is sent to the rumpled area, so the fabric heats up. After heating, let eco-leather cool. If the crease is not smoothed out, then the procedure should be repeated.
