How to remove pressure marks and creases in leather
Seat areas of cars and furniture can get deformed and creased. Also wrongly stored leather clothing can become wrinkled.
Deformations in seat areas cannot be removed. Even if there is an improvement, the deformations will return after a short period of use. By loading the leather it buckles always in same areas. Also the padding underneath gets softer. The fibres in the leather are overstretched over and over again and compressed at such areas and after a lot of repetitions, they cannot return to their original position. It’s comparable to a crumpled paper, which cannot be completely smoothed again by ironing. The creases will always be recognisable. Neither a product nor a simple trick can remove those wrinkles and deformations. To a certain extent this patina belongs to leather upholstery. But strong, striking folds do not embellish older leather.
Only saddlers and upholsterers might be able to remove such damages through upholstery work. Wrinkled leather clothing can be improved with stretching and heating with a hair dryer. If this doesn’t work, washing or dry cleaning may solve the problem.
