Just a quick question. What do you guys and gals use to clean your leathers inside? I mean, after a sweltering summer of racing, they kinda have an odor to them. Is there anything that I can do? Do I need to take them to a dry cleaners?

Thanks,
Brian

I would gather you need to invest in some leather cleaner and clean your suit on a regular basis.

First, I start by wearing Under Armor Heat Gear (long sleeve shirt, long compression shorts under my leather jacket and jeans to help with the sweat issue.

Clean/Condition leather with just that.

Last ditch effort, hang the jacket up with a bunch of Febreze brand dryer sheets stuffed in the sleeves and pockets.

it's prolly the liner of the suit, more so than the actual leather surface that is the cause of these oders ....

A little Lysol to kiil the bacteria causing the oders...then Febreze to freshen it up.

After it gets where you want it...just try the various racer website to see what works.....
underarmor is good but I think it wicks water away from your body...then it would leave it against your suit...the same this you already have going on...but I haven't used it, so... I dunno for sure.

Yeah I think it is the liner. I wish the liner would come out, then I could wash it. But I guess I will try the Lysol in water and use a washcloth to clean em with. I will see if that works!
