For cleaning we use a water-based formula product , sympathetically yet effectively cleans coated leather, and leather cloth, antique ‘aniline’ leather and vinyl. The blend of soaps and mild solvents remove a wide range of dirt and contaminants, including blue dye from jeans (in most cases) and even biro. All without the need for abrasives, which could damage the finish.
The Sealant that we use it’s an abrasive-free high performance ‘dry’ sealant made to repel dirt and other deposits – not attract or encapsulate them. Being oleophobic as well as hydrophobic, it can resist dye from denim jeans and biro marks in addition to the usual spillages.
It also locks moisture into the leather and helps ‘elasticise’ the surface, conditioning the leather and increasing pliability. This results in fewer cracks and wrinkles in the mid to long term.
In terms of finish, this is not a glossy ‘wet look’ one, as these invariably contain the waxes and oils that should be avoided. Instead, it leaves behind a natural ‘satin’ finish.
