How do I clean my Asphalt Addiction Leathers?
It is vital not to let dirt build up over time on items of leather clothing. Never use products containing solvents to clean them. Use a high quality leather cleaning kit that you can find at any automotive or furniture store. If you don’t have a kit, you can always use a sponge or a clean cloth and cold water with a little neutral soap as detergent. After cleaning the item, leave it to completely dry well away from any sources of heat (e.g. the sun, radiators, etc…) and, if possible, lay it on a flat surface or on a suitable hanger. The lining must be washed separately in water at 40°C max; we recommend that you use a neutral soap and not a detergent powder which might be abrasive.
Do you have advice on how to clean the leather garments?
- Do not rub down the garment with a brush or abrasive materials or creams.
- To remove both gnats and dust, simply wipe the area with a soft sponge soaked in neutral soap and water. It is best to promptly remove any organic spots left by insects (e.g. gnats, mosquitoes etc.), since the fluids they contain are quite aggressive on the leather.
- Any oil or grease should be washed immediately with a soft damp cloth, clean with gentle circular movements, avoiding to unduly rubbing the soiled area.
- Dry the garment away from heat sources and in a well-ventilated place, it is best to lay the garment flat or use a clothes hanger to prevent the garment from creasing or taking on shapes that are difficult to eliminate.
- When a garment is dried or after it is wet, the leather may appear dry or stiff. To restore its initial characteristics use a leather care Protection and Cleaning Kit, which can be found at any automotive or furniture dealer. Remember to take great care of your leather garments they are made of several different materials.
How do I wash the textile (Cyclone) garments?
As with leather, it is important that you do not allow dirt to build up on fabric garments, which over time may seep between the weave of the fabric and become very hard to remove. Asphalt Addiction textile garments in fabric or with waterproof and breathable membranes should be washed in luke warm water (max. 30°C) with softener free, neutral soap, instead of detergents containing solvents and abrasives. When washing make sure you treat the outer fabric very delicately, excess rubbing may damage the fibers. It is best to remove padding and protections, close zips and Velcro’s (this avoids their abrasive effect on the fabric or the internal netting). What’s more, it is important to remember to dry the garment in a dry place away from direct light and heat. Remember to take great care with garments made of several different materials. All technical fabrics, including elasticized versions, must always be given a very delicate cleaning treatment. In particular high-tech fibers with mechanical properties must be treated with softener free, neutral detergents. Softeners can significantly weaken the waterproof and oil-proof surface treatments and even damage the resin coatings and multi-purpose membranes in Polyurethane and based on Polytetrafluoroethylene (i.e. PTFE – Teflon) usually applied on the backing of the fabric.
