3)  Use leather cleaner:

After wiping the surface of a leather jacket with damp cloth apply a leather cleaner sparingly with a wet sponge. After cleaning all the stains, wipe it again with a clean cloth or sponger to remove any residue. Leave it to dry for some time.  Care must be taken while cleaning Nubuck or suede leather coats/ jackets as these fabrics are delicate and more prone to staining.  The best way to clean such fabrics is to rub gently using suede clothing brush or terry cloth.

4)   Do not forget conditioning:

After cleaning a leather coat, conditioning it is the important step.  There are various sorts of leather conditioner available.  Conditioning keeps the leather garment soft and also prevents it from cracking or drying.
