Perfectly calibrated for maintenance cleaning
This cleaner helps to remove dirt, grime, perspiration and body oils from the surface of your leather. It won't make your leather greasy, smelly or dry - just clean. Strong enough to get the job done yet gentle enough to use on a wide range of coated fashion, auto, and furniture leathers.
Contains a powerful antibacterial that is proven to kill:
- Escherichia coli (E coli)
- Proteus vulgaris
- Pseudomonas aeruginosa
- Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA or Golden Staph)
Spray, scrub and wipe
Apply by spray or pour onto a just damp white microfibre cloth. A brush can help to agitate dirt from the grain of your leather. For fine leathers, use a gentle approach with a soft bristle brush. For furniture and car leather, a medium bristle brush can usually be used. Avoid firm rubbing with a cloth as this can remove coatings.
3 monthly schedule
When it comes to leather care, a 'light and regular' approach is key. Use every 3 months or as needed to keep your leather free of deeply ingrained soiling that can eventually stain and damage leather coatings. Regular cleaning helps to prevent heavy grime build-up, and removes invisible contaminants such as perspiration and oils with less effort and better results than a once a year spring clean.
When accidents happen
Often, the difference between a mark and a stain is time. When spills and other marks have time to set in, they can become indelible; permanent. Having a pro-grade leather cleaner on hand to treat accidents when they happen can minimize the risk of nasty stains.

Maintenance is key
Leather is robust and durable, capable of lasting for many years. Like everything we touch and use regularly, it becomes soiled with grime from our skin, clothing and the atmosphere.
There are 2 main objectives when cleaning leather:
1) to improve the hygiene, look and feel
2) to remove that damaging grime and thereby extend the usable life of the leather
One is about aesthetics, the other is about preventing drying, cracking, delamination and tears.
Could your pigmented sofa use a good clean?
Car care starts here
Leathers that have opaque surface coatings are known as 'pigmented'. With few exceptions, car leathers are the pigmented type.
Cleanse (No.1) is calabrated for routine maintenance cleaning. Used regularly and in conjunction with Nourish (No.2) and Protect (No.3) it gives your leather the care it needs to keep its good looks and last for years.
If your leather is pigmented (painted/coated) this is the best cleaner for it whether its car seats, furniture, jacket, or apparel.
