Leather Master Leather Degreaser
This product is for the removal of oil (usually from hair and skin) out of leather.
Leather Master Leather Degreaser is applied through a spray. It dissolves the oils and transforms them into a powder that is more absorbent than the leather. This powder is what is wiped off, cleaning and degreasing the leather.
A grease or oil stain that has built up gradually over several years cannot be removed in a few minutes. Your patience is necessary to complete the job. Also, stains left untreated for a long time may have caused additional challenges like loss of color, cracks in the finish, or peeling of the leather. These issues can also be resolved with products like dye colorant and aniline dye. Please read all instructions before starting your application.
*This is an aerosol product containing solvents. Use this with proper ventilation only. Please read and follow all safety precautions regarding this product.
1. If the stain is confined to a small area, cover any leather that doesn't need to be treated. To do this, cut a hole approximately the size and shape of the stain in a sheet of paper and lay the paper on the leather.
2. Shake the can well.
3. Hold the can at an angle and approximately 25-30cm from the leather. Spray towards the center of the stain, feathering the product to the outside. Make sure that droplets do not fall off the tip of the nozzle onto the leather as they may cause a ring.
4. Allow the product to dry, this may take several hours. If possible, leave to dry overnight. The degreaser goes onto the leather as a liquid and turns into a powder as it reacts with the oil in the leather. If the powder is drying to a yellow color, it means that there is still a lot of oils in the leather.
5. Vacuum the area to remove the powder. Check that all the oil has been removed. Heavily saturated areas may require several applications. The powder can only absorb a fixed amount of oil per application.
6. Remove any residual powder using Leather Soft Cleaner (for nubuck, use the Nubuck Cleaning Cloth).
7. Dry the area with a hair dryer, then massage and knead the leather to prevent any rings from forming.
8. Re-protect the leather using the appropriate protection product. For type A or P leathers, apply Protection Cream. For nubuck leather, use the Nubuck Cleaner and then a Nubuck Cleaning Cloth followed by the Nubuck Protection Spray or the Nubuck Eco-Protector.
Degreaser is an aerosol based product containing solvents. Read the safety instructions and only use the product in properly ventilated areas.
Suitable for pigmented, aniline and nubuck leather.
When possible, you will achieve better results by spraying the backside of the leather to increase the drawing out of the grease. The backside is more absorbent than the grain side.

Leather Master Leather Degreaser
Excellent! Recently used this on the handles of a 45 yr old vintage Coach bag. The filth and grease stains from handling over the years were so bad they appeared black and eaten through some of the leather. I conditioned the bag with Leather Vital prior, because it was also incredibly dry and I didn't want to crack it further. Then I used this product and it turned the handles a much lighter shade, almost back to the original color. I proceeded with Strong Cleaner and the handles are ready for recolor in the near future! I just wish it was a paste rather than aerosol as the prior is easier to use imo and goes further for the large projects I'm working on.
Removed gasoline/oil from suede
This degreaser worked great for removing old gas and oil dumped on a suede boot. I wrote these guys a letter explaining my situation and they wrote me out a process of what to do, and which products to use. It obviously took several steps, but they even suggested a product to neutralize the gasoline odor.
While there was a lightening of the suede color in the areas that we cleaned, it was easy to condition those areas back and match the rest of the boot.
This company, their products, and their knowledge are the go-to folks in the industry. Avoid shopping on amazon for what you think you might need, just write these folks here and they will explain to you what you really need.
New Favorite Product!!!
Had severe oil stains in my taupe colored leather from years of fun by my son and dogs. Reached out to Leather World and they were eager to help! This stuff is amazing... almost uncanny how it erase those oil stains. Small but worth not having to buy another couch. I used one can in a day and ordered 2 more that night. Thanks!
This is an excellent product. Keep in mind it takes several applications and will need to be followed up with soft cleaner and conditioner. It may not get all of the oils out but will make it look significantly better on most pieces.
Candle wax on leather, oh no!
After blowing out a candle and having it spray allover our leather chair, this Leather Degreaser worked like a charm! Sprayed it on, waited a few hours and brushed it off with a soft bristled wire brush!
Leather sofa saved
We had a large oil stain on headrest of our expensive 6 month old aniline leather sofa . Took nearly a full can over several weeks but the stain is barely noticeable. Great product.
My leather furniture was very body oil stained. Your product did an amazing job removing almost all stains
I purchased the leather restoration kit, spew cleaner & degreaser for a sofa i’m restoring. Unfortunately, I ran into more problems than I expected. I found the web site & Sandy in customer service very helpful. As a noice in anything leather, let alone a sofa, I was apprehensive about the process. I definitely got an education in leather types & care. Almost finished & getting many compliments on the sofa. I definitely recommend Leather World products.
