    How do you stop your leather jacket going mouldy in the tropics?

    Hello everyone.
    I have just pulled my trusty leather-jacket out of storage from my mum and dad's place, and you guessed it (well, if you read the title of the thread, you would know what i am talking about - unless you were a complete moron of course) it's mouldy.The leather has also gone dry and stiff in some places. It was put away for over 4 years. My mum said i should put vasaline on it, so i did. that's it, at the top right of the photo. And that's me enjoying an after work beer in my pool after work , giving the thumbs up as usual ...



    Anyway teakdoorers. I have pulled my jacket out because it's a little chilly at night here rigt now, and i shall be using it. the thing is, it's going to get hot again soon, so my question is, how do i prevent this from happening again? is there a special way you can store leather jackets and such in the tropics that will stop them going mouldy?

    I wear my leathers every other weekend. So can't help you with your problem.
    Vaseline...good one.

    Just watched the Australian show 'Is my house killing me?" A lady had serious toxic mold problems. The expert recommended using a vinegar-based spray on mold spots. He said the mold eats it up then explodes. Don't know if this could help as vinegar can have an odor but who knows maybe it's useful to you in some way.

    Kangaroo spunk is excellent for softening tough leather.

    Put it in a plastic bag (like dry cleaner's bag), chuck in quite a few sachets of silica gel & seal as well as you can.

    I'd like to know how you have an "after work beer" when you don't fucking work.

    Ohhh, let me guess, shagging Japanese work-placement girls is now "work".

    *green with envy, yep*

    Neither William nor KW have clocked the fact that whilst the sunshade bears the XXXX legend, Wally himself is drinking a stubby of VB.

    Has anybody else noticed that Wally's clothes look American in size. I think I could get three of me in those t-shirts.

    You do know Wally that that big transmission tower you have next door to you will eventually cause your brain to explode, if it has already exploded, my apologies.

    Nice place WDR, wish I could be in OZ. VB is better tasting than the XXXX but hell, after the first 2, doesn't really matter anyway.
