Manage dye transfer
If you have white or light coloured furnishings or car seats, Transferred Dye Remover (No.15) can be a lifesaver, helping to manage those annoying blue-black shadowy tinge that come from navy and black clothing, scatter cushions and throw rugs.
Easy to use
Spray onto the leather or pour onto a just damp microfibre cloth. Use a brush to agitate into the grain. Wipe with a clean dry cloth and repeat if needed. Avoid vigorous rubbing as this action can cause damage to the coatings.
Keep this cleaner on hand
Some leather coatings absorb stains faster than others. When it comes to transferred dyes, time is of the essence. The sooner the problem is treated, the better; that is, before the stain has set in. Keep Dye Remover (No.15) on hand so that you can manage these types of stains as they happen.
When stains have set in, clean with Transferred Dye Remover (No.15) 2-3 times over 1 week. Any staining that is on the surface will be removed. Any staining that remains, has penetrated the coatings. Refinishing with new colour can help to conceal and refresh the look of the leather.
This product is ideal for use on pigmented (painted/coated) leathers and may be used on other types.
1) Treat one area at a time. Spray onto the leather. Agitate with a scrubbing brush then wipe with a white microfibre cloth to remove residue. Allow drying
2) Repeat as needed

Prompt cleaning produces best results
Use a white microfibre cloth so that you can see any removed dye residue
Leather protector, Protect (No.3) can help minimise transferred dye tinge
Never rub vigorously as this action can remove coatings (no matter what product (even water) you are using)
Note: leather finishes vary; some are more porous and absorbent than others. If the transferred dye has penetrated into the leather coatings, recolouring with leather paint (see Repair & Recolour Kit) can be helpful. In some instances, the dye may resurface or stain the new coatings in time. Where coatings are less porous and absorbent, prompt treatment with Dye Remover (No.15) can completely remove the unwanted dye
Test before use: Always test products in an inconspicuous area first. There are many makers of leather and leather coatings and whilst most are to standard, there may be some that are not. Do not use if coatings disturbance occurs. If you intend to recolour the leather, continue with use.
Storage: Lid on tight and away from direct UV light and heat (in a cool dark cupboard).
