Merawat jaket kulit tidak sama seperti merawat jaket biasanya tentu saja perlakuannya berbeda karena jaket tersebut berbahan kulit, ibaratnya sama saja seperti kulit tangan kita bila terkena deterjen terus menerus maka kulit tangan kita akan sedikit demi sedikit terkelupas, berikut ini ada beberapa hal yang perlu diperhatikan dalam merawat jeket kulit:

1. Jangan cuci dengan deterjen. Deterjen dapat membuat kulit jaket kering, rapuh dan mudah terkelupas kulitnya. Pilihlah jaket kulit bukan berdasarkan kecocokan bukan karena merk, sebab jaket kulit itu tidak semua orang sesuai memakainya.

2. Jauhkan dari air termasuk air hujan, kalau terkena air, sebaiknya langsung dijemur, tetapi jangan langsung kena sinar matahari. Jangan semprotkan parfum atu spray kepermukaan jaket kulit.

3. Jangan lupa merawat kelenturan jaket kulit dengan lotion pelembab selama sebulan sekali. Biarkan selama 1jam, setelah dioleskan. Lalu, bersihkan dengan lap yang kering dan bertekstur yang lembut, sehingga tidak merusak jaket. Jaket kulit jangan terkena air,termasuk air hujan, apabila terkena air langsung di angin-anginkan.

4. Bersihkan noda yang menempel di jaket dengan minyak goreng atau cairan pembersih khusus. Jangan lupa menggunakan kapas jika harus menggosok noda yang menempel di jaket.

5. Jangan pernah semprotkan parfum ke permukaan jaket kulit.

6. Gantungkan jaket dengan hanger jika tidak dipakai, agar kulitnya tidak mudah kusut dan lecek. Jangan juga dilipat karena lipatan akan mengubah warna kulit jaket.

Demikian tipsnya semoga bermanfaat untuk anda dalam merawat jaket kulit yang baik.

KATHMANDU, Nepal — When the dense pillar of smoke from cremations by the Bagmati River was thinning late last week, the bodies were all coming from Gongabu, a common stopover for Nepali migrant workers headed overseas, and they were all of young men.

Hindu custom dictates that funeral pyres should be lighted by the oldest son of the deceased, but these men were too young to have sons, so they were burned by their brothers or fathers. Sukla Lal, a maize farmer, made a 14-hour journey by bus to retrieve the body of his 19-year-old son, who had been on his way to the Persian Gulf to work as a laborer.

“He wanted to live in the countryside, but he was compelled to leave by poverty,” Mr. Lal said, gazing ahead steadily as his son’s remains smoldered. “He told me, ‘You can live on your land, and I will come up with money, and we will have a happy family.’ ”

Weeks will pass before the authorities can give a complete accounting of who died in the April 25 earthquake, but it is already clear that Nepal cannot afford the losses. The countryside was largely stripped of its healthy young men even before the quake, as they migrated in great waves — 1,500 a day by some estimates — to work as laborers in India, Malaysia or one of the gulf nations, leaving many small communities populated only by elderly parents, women and children. Economists say that at some times of the year, one-quarter of Nepal’s population is working outside the country.
