Porking with leather

This is the funniest thread title I've ever seen...and it keeps changing!!

from "orking with leather" to "porking with leather," the comedy never ends...I'm dying up in this beee-yatch!!!

the next one should be "borking with leather"

borking=boinking...that's too much for me to handle

cause i know you all care oh so much *grumble*grumble*

well now i found some info (finally)

Ironing: Yes, leather can be ironed, INSIDE OUT at low to medium temperature, without steam! (Do not iron leather on the sheen side. DO iron on the suede side.) Do not press too hard with the iron as you could distort the structure and shape of the article. Higher temperature does not improve the effect of ironing and could possibly burn the article. If creases seem hard to remove, let the article cool then apply leather conditioner and try again. Hang pants/trousers full length to prevent creases

If the garment gets wet, let it air dry away from any heat sources.


i got impatient, tried ironing it (suede side luckily) but saw not much was going on

then i got angry and soaked it in warm-hot water. it got the creases out after a few good stretches and flatning

now i am drying it between an old tshirt and under the weight of some photoalbums, a couple text books, and a sculpture.

*crosses fingers*

lets hope for the best
