If you think about it, life and leather draw many parallels. One of these parallels can be seen in the way time progresses, and the affect that time has on not only us, but also our possessions. Let’s face it – as much as we would love for our leather products to look brand new for decades of use, wear and tear happens. Although we can’t change this leather (or life!) reality check, we can only hope to find ways to erase the aged appearance of leather that’s lived a longer life.

At Furniture Clinic, we’ve found a way to turn that hope into a reality, and it’s in the form of a product that can arrive on your doorstep in just a few days!

Our Leather Re-Coloring Balm is all about restoring the color of your leather possessions – both old, and new. If the color in your leather is beginning to fade, or has fallen victim to damage like cat scratches or sun exposure, our Leather Re-Coloring Balm provides a quick and efficient solution.


Versatility is a key element of all of our products at Furniture Clinic, and our Leather Re-Coloring Balm is no different. Here are just a few of this product’s many advantages:

  • 21 Colors Available for Selection

  • Safe-To-Use Product that Absorbs Completely Into Leather; Preventing Stains on Clothing

  • Works on All Types of Leather, Including: Furniture, Car Interiors and Clothing

  • Only One Application Necessary: Guaranteed Results for Up To Three Years


We know you’re excited to test out our Leather Re-Coloring Balm, and we’re excited to see the great results that it will bring to your leather products! Before you buy, we recommend that you test your leather by applying a tiny drop of water onto an undamaged section of your leather, and see if the water soaks in. If the leather isn’t absorbent, you will need a Leather Touch Up Kit (for small areas) or a Leather Colorant Kit (for larger areas). For scratches, the Re-Coloring Balm will only work if the scratch has gone to a lighter color than the leather. If the scratch is darker, you will need our Leather Touch Up Kit.

Our Leather Re-Coloring Balm will transform the color of your leather items, and breathe life back into worn or faded leather. As one of the top-rated leather recoloring products available online, the Leather Re-Coloring Balm is your perfect solution for restoring the beautiful color of newly purchased leather.

Coverage & Shelf Life

250ml of Leather Re-Coloring Balm is enough to:

Completely restore color to a leather three piece suite!

The product is specially treated to resist bacterial growth and will safely last 3 years if stored in a cool cupboard with the lid fastened.

Step 1. 

Clean the leather first before applying the balm, for best results use our Leather Cleaner, which deep cleans the leather to remove all dirt, but also opens up the pores of the leather so the Leather Re-Coloring Balm will take to the leather in a better fashion.

Step 2.

Rub the Balm into the leather in a circular motion to ensure penetration. This is enough to completely restore the color. Take a clean cloth and then buff the surface of the leather. Make sure there is no excess balm left on the leather.

Step 3. 

After buffing, the leather becomes 100% colorfast. For thorough protection and longevity of your leather, we recommend applying the Leather Protection Cream, this will help to reduce future fading.

NOTE: Each color as you can see is split into three shades, this is to indicate that each color balm works on those different shades of the color, i.e. from a light to dark shade. So the more balm you apply, the darker the leather becomes, this is why you are able to achieve varying shades of a color.

Can the Re-Colouring Balm be used on any type of leather?

Yes, however, the leather must be absorbent for it to work, or scratched to a lighter colour. You can test the leathers absorbancy by dropping a small drop of water onto the surface of the leather and see if it soaks in or not. If it soaks in then this is the ideal product for you. If the water does not absorb we recommend using either our Complete Leather Repair Kit for small areas or our Leather Colourant Kit for larger areas.

The Re-Colouring Balm will work on non-absorbent leathers if the surface of the leather has been scuffed or scratched; showing a lighter colour beneath. Applying the Re-Colouring Balm will blend the damage in but will not repair it. For this, we recommend our Complete Leather Repair Kit.


Will the Balm come off onto my clothes?

No, the Balm is completely colour fast once dried and the leather has been buffed. You should buff the leather with a clean, dry cloth until there is no colour transfer showing on the cloth.

To add further protection, we recommend applying our Leather Protection Cream as this will help protect the leather and give further colour fastness. 


I cannot see a colour which matches my item perfectly on the colour chart, what should I do?

It is not crucial that the colour matches the colour chart. Our Re-Colouring Balm is designed to cover multiple shades of any colour, and so will blend in as it is applied. The more Balm you apply the darker the colour will get.

The nature of most absorbent leathers is that there is not one specific colour to your item, therefore you do not require an exact match in colour.


Do I need to clean my leather before applying the Re-Colouring Balm?

Yes, it is highly recommended to thoroughly clean your leather with our Leather Cleaner before applying the Re-Colouring Balm. Cleaning the leather first will remove any dirt and grime which may be blocking the pores of your leather; this will allow the Balm to soak in much easier bringing better results.

You can buy both the Re-Colouring Balm and Leather Cleaner in our Easy Leather Restoration Kit.


I've applied the Balm and then Leather Protection Cream and the colour has come off, is this normal?

Yes, it is normal to see some colour transfer when applying our Leather Protection Cream after applying the Balm. You should wait 24 hours before applying the Protection Cream to limit this. It is also recommended to apply the Protection Cream lightly; this again will limit the colour transfer.


Can the Balm be used to change the colour of leather, particularly from dark to light?

Unfortunately not. The Re-Colouring Balm is designed for restoring the colour back to worn and faded leather.

If you would like to change the colour of your item, we recommend using our Leather Colourant Kit.


Does the Balm condition the leather?

Yes, as it soaks into the leather, the Balms natural properties will keep the leather soft and supple, which in turn will condition the leather to a certain degree. 

The main purpose of the Balm is to restore the colour though, so if you are looking to condition your leather we recommend using our Leather Protection Cream, as this is one of its main purposes.


Can I use the Leather Protection Cream with the Re-Colouring Balm?

Yes, we recommend applying our Leather Protection Cream after using the Balm. We recommend waiting 24 hours before applying the Leather Protection Cream.


Can the Balm be used with filler when repairing cracks or rips?

No, for this you need our Complete Leather Repair Kit (for small areas) or our Leather Colourant Kit (for larger areas). A large area can be defined as anything larger than a tennis ball.

The Balm can be used in conjunction with either kit to restore the colour to the other areas of leather though.
