How to remove creases from PU leather

So what is PU leather?

PU leather, also known as synthetic leather or faux leather, is a type of material made from a split leather backing covered with a layer of polyurethane (PU) that is applied to the surface and then embossed to give it the appearance of natural leather.

It is a popular alternative to genuine leather due to its affordability, durability, and easy maintenance. Often seen used as a substitute for genuine leather in furniture, clothing, handbags. However, just like genuine leather, PU leather can develop creases over time, especially if it has been folded or stored in a tight space for a long period.

Now we know what PU leather is, try the following steps and tips at home to remove creases from PU leather products:

1. Use a steamer.
Using a steamer is an easy alternative to remove creases from the PU leather.

2. Turn inside out to steam
Steaming the lining instead of directly putting the heat on the PU leather will help prevent any damage to the outer layer of the Pu leather. Hold the item over the steam and use your fingers to massage out the creases.

3. Never iron directly onto PU leather
It is essential to note that you should never iron directly onto PU leather as the heat can cause it to bubble or melt. Instead, you can use a muslin cloth to overlay the leather and iron over the cloth to remove the creases. Be sure to use a low heat setting and avoid applying too much pressure.

Remember to always be gentle with PU leather, and avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials that may damage the surface.
