Click on SG-25 picture to go to product page.

Intro

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 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 or conditioning task. 

One Step Conditioning and Protecting

This product's primary purpose is conditioning and protecting your leather.  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 absorb (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 reffered to as "full aniline" leather.  It is open-pored with no surface-sealer finish and will potentially darken with the applications 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 solutions to the underside of a cushion or such place where you can evaluate the affect, before you apply it to more visible leather panels. 

 

How often?

Depending on how dry your environment or how actively the furniture is used will determine frequency of application.  In a dry, high-use environment- apply every 4-6 weeks- while in a humid, low-impact environment perhaps, one application a year is sufficient.

To Use:

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 into the leather allowing time to install the moisturizing agents into the leather.  Repeat the process, turning the cloth frequently, using clean sections of the cloth until all leather surfaces have been covered.  Allow 1-2 hours to fully dry.
