The correct use of the Passion shine brushes
You can use the horsehair brush either for removing fine dust or for polishing.
When polishing, the horsehair is hard enough to get excess care products off the leather after care, but soft enough to leave some wax on the leather for shine.
If you want to achieve a more beautiful shine on your shoes, you should use our shine brush made of goat hair, because the bristles of this brush are much thinner and softer than horsehair and can polish out the streaks, no matter how fine, that horsehair leaves behind. However, these hairs are too soft for the first polish, so use the goat hair brush only after polishing with horsehair.
Much helps much or less is more?
Our recommendation for ideal smooth leather care
Always proceed in the same order and please check the compatibility of each care product on a non-visible or concealed area. For handbags, the underside or the inside of straps and fasteners are ideal. For shoes, the area around the heel or even the tongue or flap is a good place to test the compatibility.
First clean the product to be cared for. Remove dust and light dirt with a horsehair brush or a soft cotton cloth. Deep-seated dirt and stains that have not completely disappeared in the first step should be treated with a suitable cleaning agent.
If you have used a cleaning agent, let it dry on the leather and then start the second step of leather care. Now apply a leather cream sparingly in the appropriate shade. Massage the leather cream into the surface using light circular movements and without applying pressure.
- A darker shade will darken the leather.
- With a lighter shade, the colour tone is retained.
After a resting period of about 10 minutes, polish the leather with a horsehair brush.
In the third and last step, apply the wax sparingly and gently in the same application mode. This protects the leather surface against the effects of weather and other influences. You can achieve a beautiful high gloss by polishing the leather with the horsehair brush for a longer time and with quick movements. (Alternatively, use a cotton cloth)
We wish you much success in caring for smooth leather and continue to enjoy looking at and preserving your leather product.
