So, I got this AMAZING grandmother’s vintage leather trench coat,
and we had an accident: the coat was in our storage and last winter and the water
got in there and now the trench is in terrible mold!

Please, do you have any advises for me, cause I really need this coat to be clean, soon!

Thanks already,
Ida

You should check out the dry cleaners in your area and maybe they would be able to give you advice on how you could repair the coat.

Agreed, dry cleaners can work wonders. I wouldn’t try to do anything to it on your own. Also, if you know of any leather-workers you could consult them, or if you have any “clothing doctors” in your area as i do, they also might know what to do…

I used Saddle Soap to remove water damage from a handbag that got water and salt (the stuff people put out to melt ice and snow) all over it… it worked like a charm, I don’t know about mold though, agreed consult a professional.
