Leather can be ironed using a very low setting. When ironing leather, a cloth should be placed on top of the leather to prevent burn marks.

When ironing leather, users should try the lowest setting possible first. If this does not work, the iron should be turned to the next higher setting. It is also vital to keep the iron moving across the cotton cloth as leaving the iron in one place for too long can damage the leather by leaving scorch marks, causing discoloration or burning holes. Users should also avoid using steam when ironing leather to prevent discoloration of the garment.
