How To Use:
Mix 1 – 4 ounces of leather cleaner concentrate to each gallon of luke warm water and wipe leather ( submerge loose leather ). Rub and/ or agitate until determined that the leather is clean. Wipe ( rinse loose leather ) in warm water and allow to dry ( slowly ).
Completely wet the leather by soaking it in a bath of luke warm water ( loose leather ) or wet the leather by sponging ( water temperature should never exceed 100 degrees F ).
Using a brush, apply a generous coating of detergent concentrate to the surface. Apply to both sides if the leather is loose.
Next place the treated leather in a plastic bag ( if loose ) for 1 hour, then rinse thoroughly with luke warm water ( again, do not exceed 100 degrees F ).
Allow leather to dry ( slowly ). In most cases no further conditioning is necessary except for leather that was extremely dry and stiff. If that is the case, repeat the steps above. The leather may take several days to dry.
Note: Always test a small area in the least conspicuous place before treating the whole leather article. Most antique leather has been tanned with extracts ( also known as bark tanning ) and holds up well to washing.
