Clean Your Lederhosen

The first step to restoring your German Lederhosen is to clean it. Lederhosen often gather dust while in storage and if last year’s beer and food stains have not been removed than they pose a problem as well.

Brush off the Dust

The first thing to do is to gently brush off the dust from your Lederhosen by using a special soft fiber brush. Since authentic Lederhosen are made from genuine leather so they need to be treated carefully and brushing the dust off by using special fibers is sure to clean the Lederhosen without damaging the fabric.

Rinse in Lukewarm Water

Even though most people hold the perception that Lederhosen cannot be cleaned, that is untrue. You can lightly rinse the Lederhosen in lukewarm water to remove any stubborn stains and give the Lederhosen a cleaner look. It is essential to use lukewarm water so that it does not damage the leather.

Dry Slowly at Room Temperature

In order to maintain the integrity and shape of the Lederhosen, it must be dried at room temperature.  Drying Lederhosen in temperature above or below room temperature can leave it wrinkly and may even leave some water droplets in it. This might damage the leather and make the Lederhosen unusable. However, once you are done with this step, it will make your Lederhosen look good as new.

Restore Lederhosen Embroidery

The best Lederhosen are those that have a perfect blend of fabric and embroidery. In fact, beautifully embroidered Lederhosen for sale are available online at the Lederhosen Store for reasonable prices. However, if you have Lederhosen that are old then chances are the embroidery may be coming off or getting faded.

You do not want to turn up to Oktoberfest with faded and worn out embroidery since it can leave a bad impression on the locals and ruin your Oktoberfest experience. Besides, the aspects that make the Lederhosen unique are its genuine leather, style and embroidery. So if the embroidery o your Lederhosen is starting to wear, you can take it to a nearby tailor (or one that you trust) and simply ask them to restore the embroidery. It is essential to use the same kind of thread and color as the one used originally otherwise the look of Lederhosen can be ruined.

Once the tailor has restored the embroidery, you can wear your authentic Lederhosen to Oktoberfest 2020 with pride. The locals of Bavaria in fact take pride in the fact that Lederhosen are old, since the older the Lederhosen, the more authentic it is considered.
