Description

Our Leather Degreaser Removes All Oil and Grease Stains

If your leather is dull, dark, or maybe even a little sticky – you may have a stubborn grease stain on your hands (or rather, on your furniture or car interior). At Furniture Clinic, we work with a variety of leather applications – including cars – so handling grease stains are right up our alley.

Our Leather Degreaser is a thick paste, designed to gently draw out all oil, sweat, and grease stains from your leather. Here are a few uses that may be useful for you:

  • Greasy collars on leather jackets

  • Oil or air freshener spills

  • Food spills (e.g. pizza or fries

  • Greasy steering wheels from hand contact

  • Head and arm grease patches on furniture

Ready for a fun fact about the Leather Degreaser? Despite its “grease”-geared name, the Leather Degreaser is also equipped to remove ink and other types of stains that have absorbed and soaked into leather – making it a product that can be pulled out of your supply cabinet for more than one purpose . This is most common on absorbent types of leather such as Aniline & Pull Up style leathers.

A Leather Degreaser that Goes a Long Way

 

As long as this product is sealed properly in a cool space, it will never expire. 8.5 oz. of our Leather Degreaser is enough to degrease a large head area stain (approximately 2 square ft. in size) about five times. 34 fl oz? Well, you can do the math – but that’s a lot of grease coverage!

 

At Furniture Clinic, we believe that value is not only derived by our high standard of quality, but also by the ability to apply our products to your custom needs. If you have questions regarding this product’s ability to work for your needs, we encourage you to give us a call and speak with our team at any time – we’re always happy to help!

Coverage & Shelf Life

Using 8.5 fl.oz. / 250ml of our Leather Degreaser is enough to degrease a large head area stain about five times. A large head area stain would be about 15" x 15" in size. It would also be more than enough to degrease one-off grease stains like those occuring when oil is dropped onto leather for example.

The product will not go off but it can dry out if the cap isn’t sealed properly. Make sure to store it in a cool location with the cap tightly sealed.

Step 1. Clean the leather

Clean the leather first using our Leather Cleaner. Spray the Leather Cleaner onto a sponge and give the grease-stained area a thorough clean. If the grease stain has built up over years of use (where you rest your head or hands) you should soak the leather in the Leather Cleaner and squeeze the leather through the Terry Towel. This will absorb a larger amount of grease into the towel saving the amount of Degreaser used.

Step 2. Apply the Leather Degreaser

Using a paintbrush, spread the Degreaser onto the stained area and allow it to dry (drying times will differ depending on how greasy the leather is). As the product dries it will slowly absorb the grease - you will see this happening as the Degreaser will dry to a brown/yellow colour where it absorbs the grease, everywhere else will dry to a white colour.

Step 3. Allow to dry and remove powder

Once the Degreaser has thoroughly dried out it turns to a powder on the surface of the leather. This powder should then be vacuumed off.

Step 4. Clean the leather again

Clean the leather as before using the Leather Cleaner.

Step 5. Repeat process if required

If the leather still has any grease left in it, keep repeating the above processes again until it has gone.

Once the grease has been removed the leather may need re-colouring. To do this use a Leather Re-Colouring Balm or Leather Colourant Kit. To stop grease being absorbed again, use the Leather Protection Cream once every three months for thorough grease stain protection.


Note: Bi-cast (a very shiny and plastic like leather) can react with the degreaser and cause it to stick to the surface. This product is not suitable for bi-cast leathers. Please contact us if you are unsure of your leather type.
