Re: Cleaning leather racing suit
If it's as bad as you say it is you can machine wash the suit. Just remove all the padding and turn the suit inside out. Then wash the suit in the washing machine with color safe woolite and set the washing machine for delicate/gentle with cold water. When the wash is done remove the suit and turn it outside out again and let it air dry on a hanger in the shower. After a day the suit should be dry to the touch, when it is work some leather conditioner into it and then turn it inside out again. Let it hang dry for another day or two until dry. When it's dry on the inside, turn it back outside out and the work in some more leather conditioner and then your done.
It's a leap of faith to do this but it works and is exactly what I do. Be sure the suit is dry to the touch before you work in the conditioner if you have light and dark colors next to each other you have slight bleeding. You can towel dry the suit a little to help reduce this. This is the only way to totally clean a suit.
