ADV Leather Cleaner

To protect and preserve the long-term beauty of your leather it’s important that you take a few moments to review these simple care and maintenance steps. While these general cleaning instructions will apply to all finished leathers, it is not always evident that the leather has a finish on it. Therefore always test in an obscure area before doing a cleaning task.

Application: Dusting - Regularly wipe the piece with a lightly dampened white cotton cloth to take off topical dust.

One Step Cleaning - It is intended for use on “finished” grade leather. However, it is applicable to most unfinished leathers as well. As a note of caution . . . Some unfinished leather is very absorbent (porous). An example is calf skin. This type of leather is spectacularly soft and supple however, it is also vulnerable aesthetically. Most unfinished leather is referred to as “full aniline” leather. It is open-pored with no surface-sealer finish and will potentially darken with the application of any cleaner or conditioner. Additionally the darkening affect may be uneven and blotchy. This darkening and unevenness typically dissipates with 15 – 30 minutes. In some cases it may not dissipate completely. As a result, it is always important to do a test. Apply some solution to the underside of a cushion or such place where you can evaluate the affect, before you apply it to more visible leather panels.

Place a tablespoon size dollop on a clean, moist, cloth. A micro-fiber or terry-cloth towel works great. Massage it into the cloth, and apply via rubbing across one section of the leather at a time. Rub on to the leather surface. Repeat this process, turning the cloth frequently, using clean sections of the cloth until all leather surfaces have been cleaned. Rinse the soiled cloth with warm water to remove accumulated soiling from the cloth, wring dry and the cloth can be reused. Allow time (1 – 2 hours) to fully dry.
