How to Clean Leather
Step by step guide: Simple steps for cleaning leather
To clean leather you need to use Leather Cleaner. This is a very effective cleaner that deep cleans into the grain removing all dirt and grime from leather. Safe to use on all leather types except suede & nubuck, with outstanding results.
When cleaning leather, it is always best to clean leather with a foam, rather than a liquid. Cleaning leather with foam is safer as it reduces the chances of bleach type marks and streaks, more importantly though, foam cleaning leather is a lot more effective than using liquids.
Rub the sponge into the leather in a circular motion to loosen the dirt. As the dirt is removed, the foam will absorb it stopping it from being transferred around the leather. Simply wipe the foam away with a cloth.
Most leathers should clean very well with a sponge. However, if your leather is very dirty, light colored and has dirt in the grain, you will find it much easier cleaning the leather with a Tampico Brush.
