When do you need to wash lederhosen?
In many minds, the firm belief continues to prevail to this day: you don’t wash lederhosen. Never! Of course that depends on your own pain threshold for stains.

Smaller stains can often be treated easily with stain remover. For more, check out the next section! A good pair of leather pants made from fine deerskin should have a certain patina, but if this later develops too strongly, it’s time for treatment. You know it’s high time for a wash when the leather begins to harden. That happens when the leather below the patina suffocates, i.e. it is practically sealed.
