STEP 1 - Clean the Leather:
Apply Leather Cleaner to one of the enclosed sponges. Work Leather Cleaner into a foam as much as possible. Apply to all areas that will be re-colored using a swift circular motion. Blot away any residue and allow the Leather Cleaner to dry. Depending on how dry the leather has become, the cleaner may dry almost immediately. This is a sign of dehydration from the leather. If your leather cleaner is drying fast, you can then mist the leather with distilled water or apply leather conditioner to get some moisture back into the leather. This product is designed as a general Leather Cleaner and will help with most water based staining. If you have stains in the leather from Body Oils, this product will not remove them. You will need the Leather Master Degreaser product to remove any protein based stains.
STEP 2 - Condition the Leather:
Start by applying 1-2 light coats of the Leather Hydrating Cream. Allowing each coat to absorb in and dry. This will get some moisture and natural oils back into the leather to help it hold the color and regain the soft and supple feel of natural leather. This step is necessary in leathers that have reached a severe fade level from the original color or has become dry.
STEP 3 - Recolor the Leather:
Using the other enclosed sponge or a lint free cloth, wipe on 2-4 light coats of the Aniline Leather Dye. The dye will absorb into the leather and mix and react with what is currently there. You will want to allow the leather to dry in between each coat of Aniline Dye which is approximately 1 hour. Once you get the final coat of dye on then allow 24 hours of dry time before use. Then apply protection cream or hydrating cream to the finished leather.
STEP 4 - Protecting the Leather (Recommended):
With a Leather Protection Cream, apply 1-2 light coats of protection cream to the leathers surface. This will absorb into the leather allowing some stain resistance to most water based soiling. This will also add so richness to the final color coat. For general maintenance Aniline leather should be cleaned and protected 2-6 times per year. This will be determined by the use of the leather.
STEP 5 - Buffing the Leather
Using the buffing cloths, just simply buff the top surface of the re-colored leather. You will want to use light pressure when buffing the leather.
