    Letter jacket care
    I have an old letter jacket that was stored away for years. When I found it the arms of the jacket felt greasy or slimly. I took it to the dry cleaners because itís in great shape. It came back OK but now itís been hanging around for about a year, and the sleeves or arms which are vinyl feel greasy, There must be some kind of deterioration going on with this vinyl. Does anyone know how to stop this deterioration process, or what may be happening with this jacket. Thanks The Wooddude

    Thanks for trying to help. I never said anything about it being leather. This is a high school LETTER jacket. I'm sure that the sleeves are vinyl. Sorry for the misspilling of slimy.
    Thanks The Wooddude

    OOPs, I assumed you just slipped up when you typed leather and wrote letter. Automotive vinyl cleaner should do the trick for you.
