Can I safely steam pleather?
« on: February 27, 2010, 11:56:50 AM »
Does anybody have any experience or opinions on whether or not it'd be safe to use my clothes steamer on an article made of pleather?

However it is not recommended that you use the Tobi travel steamer or the Tobi Steamer on any type of suede, leather or polyvinyl type material like "pleather." Certain polyesters do not take well to steam cleaning either as the plastic fibers in the material melt a bit. This can cause the fabric to look distorted or discolored over time.

Thanks, David, from my Tobi and me  :h0161

Dangit, though.  I'd love to get the wrinkles out of this before taking pics.  Wrinkles are like pounds - there always seem to be more of them in photos  ;)

No, Jeri...that was getting the smell out of leather...wasn't it?
I think Deborah and BTPS helped with that.

Never get pleather steamed. It holds a grudge.

And may I add, use extreme caution when googling:  steam pleather?

Thank goodness I didn't image google - I'd've needed eye bleach  :o :o :o

And yes, Jeri, I had stinky leather and wrinkly pleather - but I think I'm good now  :smarty
