The correct application
Take the cleaner on a cotton cloth and rub it with light pressure over the soiled area or, if necessary, over the entire surface of the leather product. The gentle rubbing only removes the dirt. As soon as you rub with more pressure, you will dissolve the old creams and waxes. You will notice that once the leather is clean, it no longer looks shiny but dull. Therefore, after cleaning, let the leather product dry and then apply the care cream and wax and polish it with a horsehair brush.

Our recommendation for the ideal smooth leather care
Always proceed according to the same sequence and please check the compatibility of each care product, in a non-visible or concealed place. 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 as well as 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 cream into the surface with light circular movements and without pressure.
- A darker shade will darken the leather
- With a lighter shade, the colour tone is preserved
After a rest period of approx. 10 minutes, polish the leather with the 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.
