Great results start with a well prepared surface
This surface prep solution is used in conjunction with a medium bristle scrubbing brush and microfibre cloths to remove the dirt you can see; soiling, as well as the factors you can't see such as waxes, oils, silicones, and emollients. If not removed, these contaminants can compromise coatings adhesion and reduce the durability of your job.
Stubborn marks and spring cleaning
This powerful leather cleaner can be useful for stubborn spot cleaning and removing years of built-up grime. Use with caution and watch for coatings disturbance. If the coatings on your leather are not stable, this cleaner may be too strong for it. You can choose to stop using it or continue cleaning and then apply new colour coatings.
Oil in leather
Due to the porous and fibrous nature of leather, hair and body oils as well as greasy spills are absorbed deep into the structure. Spot & Prep (No.4) can help to remove oil from the surface but cannot draw it out completely.
Suitable for use on most types of leather when preparing the surface for recolouring.
It can also be used with caution to remove stubborn marks or for a deep spring clean.
CAUTION: When there is no plan to recolour, be sure to test in an inconspicuous place and watch for any unwanted changes during use. Coatings disturbance (balling of coatings or colour coming off onto the cloth) can occur with this strong cleaner when the coatings are inferior, extra light, old or in a compromised condition.
