Can you wash a bomber jacket in the washing machine?
Usually, a bomber jacket made with nylon or synthetic cotton blend can be washed in a washer, but as we said, it all depends on your care label. Avoid mixing with other fabrics when washing your jackets. Place mild detergent into the washer. Place the washer on a “delicate” cycle and remember to use cold water.

How do you wash a polyester bomber jacket?
Machine wash your polyester or polyester blend garments in warm water on the “permanent press” setting. Use a mild powdered laundry detergent (non-toxic, biodegradable types preferred) and line dry, or tumble dry on low heat. (Remove it from the dryer quickly to prevent wrinkling).
Do bomber jackets shrink?
All depends on the leather. If it’s horsehide, it’ll shrink after wet and dried in heat, but won’t shrink if dried naturally. If cowhide, heat won’t shrink it as much, won’t be noticeable.
