    When beginning, make the surface wet with the help of a damp cloth. Make sure you don’t put too much water on the jacket. The idea is to moisturise the surface.

    Now apply a mild soap solution. Even a small portion of the jacket should not be ignored. After applying the soap on the entire jacket, quickly remove it with the help of a sponge dampened with clean water. Use the towel or any other dry piece of cloth to remove excess water.
