If your jacket is covered in mold or gets stained, clean it by using diluted alcohol having water in equal proportions. You can easily do that by dampening a cotton cloth with this mixture and using it to wipe off the mold. If that doesn’t work, you may use a mild germicidal soap mixed with water, wiping off the excess liquid with dry cotton cloth.
