Help! Faux leather deteriorating
My nine year old son just purchased a vintage (1996) GI Joe which includes a faux leather bomber jacket. The fabric of this jacket has become sticky and is deteriorating. It is shiny black polyester (?) on the inside of the fabric, with a brown vinyl-ish coating to look like brown leather on the outside. Any help you could give us will be appreciated! Is there anything we can put on the fabric to halt the deterioration? Thank you in advance!
