Big Meanie Motorsports Leather wash

I know there have been threads before people asking about it. I decied to use it on my Icon Motorhead jacket. I have had this thing for 2 years now, sweating, riding in the rain, etc in it. i have never cleaned it. After many rides in the rain this winter it was starting to look gray, so i picked up this cleaner and figured i would give it a try.

outstanding. the jacket really looks new again. The process was really easy and it took about 3 days to 100% dry. I could have worn the jacket after the second day, but it just felt a little damp in some spots.

heres the product;

i didn't snap any pics before the wash, i wish i did, i didn't think it would look this good.

Stuff works great. The pics in link you posted are my leathers before and after. It was night and day difference. Good stuff and easy on the pocket book.

Nice. I've had my Dainese Talos IV for almost 4 years. I've been using Lexol leather cleaner but found this A&H stuff that works wonders. No pics, will try to get some tonight.



FYI - That A&H stuff works well on white/light car interiors.

I use the Big Meanie stuff as well and I was AMAZED at how well the stuff worked on my leathers.

Good stuff!

And your jacket looks NEW, Alex! Nice!

wow, really? I'm not sure how I feel about my heavy leather tumbling around in there, might be worth a trip to the laundry mat for that one.

When you rent who the fuck cares about the machine. I am with Cook, I am not putting my 40lb suit in my thousand dollar washing machine.

Quick question... did your leathers feel stiff at all after they dried out?

The 2nd part of the wash is a leather conditioner you add during the rinse cycle so no stiff leathers.

No stiff leathers.

Bad news.... it didn't fix the scrapes where leather has been worn down. Anyone got anything that will help the leather grow back?

According to the "leather guru" Barnacle Bill ,THE best method for cleaning leathers is machine wash with mild detergant let hang dry and rub hand lotion on them before there completely dry.

No shit.

Daryl,

So this is machine wash, and then lotion is the second phase, IN the machine. Want it perfect? When you get done doing it this way, put leather lotion on the seams and let it soak in when it comes out of the washer.

3 days to dry, make sure to flex it a few times to ensure it doesn't get stiff.
