Because it’s no secret that the leather has some peculiarities, both because of the matter itself and the processing processes it has undergone. So let’s see how it is right to wash a leather jacket.

medium level to avoid unpleasant surprises. The jacket should be turned inside out while it is in the dryer and it is advisable to check it every 10 minutes to make sure it is still wet.

On air

Drying the leather jacket out of the fresh air is definitely a much better and recommended idea. You can hang it on the terrace or yard, but you must choose a place that is shady and no direct sunlight because the sun’s rays can damage it if it heats it too long.

Disadvantages

It is very possible, in such a procedure, that the jacket will lose some of its luster. For this reason, it is advisable to wash only if this is absolutely necessary.

Another risk is that the jacket will stretch and become damaged if it is not properly washed and dried. Most experts recommend using the services of dry cleaners because this is the safest alternative for the leather jacket.

Furnishing of student lodging with minimum funds

To make a student’s home comfortable and cozy, you do not have to spend hundreds of pounds. If you have them – well. If you do not have them – and without them you will get it. Here’s what we offer you – former students and current masters of all sorts of crap for the home.

Shelves – more shelves

Shelves

They are not expensive and you can mount them yourself on the wall. Even better, moving away from the lodgings you can remove them from one place and put them on the other. If the walls of your apartment are in neutral color buy your boards in different colors and different lengths. For example – yellow for books and textbooks; blue for dishes and glasses; green for souvenirs and small gifts; orange for packaged foods.

Do not have a kitchen? Take a corner for it, we’ll get back to the topic a little bit later. Do not worry that the shelves will get you a lot. Distribute them on the walls, they will definitely bring in the comfort of the room with their colors, and there will be places to arrange your belongings.

Improved kitchen

True, students do not cook much, but it is good to have somewhere to mix a soup, tea or stew. Click To TweetIf there is a large, high table in your room, push it into the corner of the kitchen. (It’s easier for you to have a coffee table.) Mount the shelves above it. From the market, you can get larger wicker basket to arrange at one end of the table. Keep them in fruits, vegetables, tea and coffee boxes. A jar will do a great job for the spoons, forks, knives.

From a tile store, buy a larger granite tile in whatever color you like. (If it is a sample, it will be cheaper.) Put it on the kitchen table and put the hotplate on it.

Stretch thin legs from foot to leg on the table. Buy a cheerful cloth for curtains – the best canvas. Sew hooks on pieces

of cloth and surround them with space under the table. This will give you a great jar storage space that will not irritate your eyes.

Look around. Do you need anything else? Think about how you can do it by handy means. We are sure you will get well. And if you move in new house you will need post tenancy cleaning services.
