Easily cleans leather, even with deeply embedded dirt
The Complete Leather Restoration Kit allows you to properly clean your leather, removing all surface dirt, grease and grime and then restore the colour to its former glory, before protecting and conditioning to keep it looking great. The kit comprises of:
A safe-to-use, gentle leather cleaner capable of removing even the toughest build-up of dirt and grime from leather. Cleaning with a sponge to create a foaming action gets into the grain and lifts out dirt easily.
The Leather Re-Colouring Balm renovates the colour and aspect of all leather items, both old and new. There are 16 colours formulated for use on leather from a dark to light shade. It works great at re-colouring areas that have been exposed to sunlight or direct heat and is ideal for colouring cat scratches and re-colouring dried out and faded areas. The Leather Re-Colouring Balm absorbs into your leather so will not rub off onto any clothes.
After cleaning the leather, it is necessary to condition it. This product not only feeds and conditions leather but will add a protective layer that repels stains and helps prevent wear and tear. Infused with a luxurious leather aroma the Protection Cream also reinstates the smell back into old and new leather.

Step 1. Clean the leather
The first step in caring for your leather should always be to clean it with the Leather Ultra Clean and the Cleaning Sponge provided, even if the leather is new.
Clean the leather
Pre-test on a hidden area first. Wet a sponge with water and squeeze the excess out. Pour the cleaner into the sponge and squeeze several times to create a foam. Use this to rub into the leather in a circular motion. This will lift the dirt from the surface. Wipe away any excess cleaner from the leather with a clean cloth. Repeat this process if required.
NOTE: When cleaning absorbent leather such as Aniline and Pull-up, the leather will soak up the cleaner and darken; this is normal and will revert to what it was once dry. You should work swiftly across one full panel at a time to ensure the leather darkens evenly throughout.
Rub the balm into the leather in a circular motion to ensure absorption. This is enough to completely restore the colour. Take a clean cloth and then buff the surface of the leather. Make sure there is no excess balm left on the leather.
After buffing, the leather becomes 100% colourfast.
Step 3. Apply Protection Cream
Wait several days after the leather is coated with balm, then apply the Leather Protection Cream using the Applicator Sponge and rub into the leather in a circular motion. Leave this to dry for 10-15 minutes and then buff the area with a clean cloth. Apply two coats initially and then top up every three months.
Protect the Leather
Applying the protection cream in this manner will ensure your leather has complete protection from dirt and staining.
NOTE: Now your leather is fully protected, it is recommended to wipe down your item once a month with a damp cloth to remove any surface dust. Doing so will stop future build ups of dirt.
Step 4. Leather Care Maintenance
Four Seasons Leather Care Plan
You should clean and protect your leather every three months to ensure thorough protection from dirt and staining all year long. The beauty of doing this is that your leather will never be difficult to clean again, simply needing to be wiped down with a damp cloth every now and then to remove settled dust.
This is definitely worth doing if you have children, pets or you have an absorbent type of leather like aniline or pull-up. Our system will make your leather last longer, greatly prolonging its lifespan.
Please view the videos provided below for easy to follow, visual instruction on how to use this product effectively, demonstrating how easy it is to use on real life examples.
• Cleans – Safely cleans all leather back to a ‘new’ condition. Not only that but after applying the Protection Cream, all future dirt will be held on the barrier it creates and will easily wipe off. It helps stop leather absorbing dirt!
• Conditions – Feeds the leather with natural oils and waxes preventing it from drying out and cracking.
• Repels Stains – Effectively holds dirt, oil, and water-based stains on the surface to simply be wiped away.
• Protects – The Protection Cream adds an invisible barrier to the leather that protects the leather from the elements as well as stains. When you sit on leather you cause friction. Continuous friction will wear away the leather’s coating, causing your leather to become rough and faded. The colour may even start to peel and wear off! The Protection Cream absorbs all friction and so helps prevent these problems.
• Aromatic – This product will temporarily infuse the smell back into all items of leather.
• Reduces Fading – With added UV inhibitors the Protection Cream also helps prevent the sun from fading the leather when it is in direct sunlight.
Added barrier protection technology in the Leather Protection Cream allows the leather to repel oil and water-based stains, retaining them on the surface so that the leather can be easily wiped clean. Am effective barrier is created in repelling water and oil-based spills.
It also makes the leather easier to clean in the future.
How? Because it stops dirt from being absorbed or becoming ingrained in the leather, allowing you to wipe the dirt away easily.
Modern Leather – Why this product is ideal for it! – Most leather sold in shops and in all car interiors has a pigmented finish on it. This means that the leather is painted and then sealed with a lacquer. It is impossible to feed the leather because you cannot breach the surface and so the oils and waxes can’t soak in. In these cases, it is not the leather that is drying out and cracking but the pigment on the surface.
Using a leather conditioner on such leathers will have no benefit, instead, you need a product that protects the finish. The Leather Protection Cream adds a protective layer to the leather that will protect the finish from all wear, tear and heat.
Complete Leather Restoration Kit – FAQ
Q. Do I need to buy the kit, or can I just use the Leather Re-Colouring Balm?
A. The Balm will work fine on its own. However, if you don’t clean the leather first you will be applying Balm on top of dirt, which can stop it from soaking in as well. Also, if some areas of the leather are dirty, this can cause it to look slightly odd compared to the new fresh colour applied with Balm.
Q. What is the difference between the Easy Restoration Kit and the Complete Restoration Kit?
A. The Easy Restoration Kit contains:
500ml Leather Ultra Clean
250ml Leather Re-Colouring Balm
1 x Cleaning Sponge
1 x Applicator Sponge
Whereas the Complete Kit also comes with 500ml Leather Protection Cream too. You use this afterwards to protect and nourish the leather. It will help stop stains and spills, and help prevent future fading. The Protection Cream nourishes the leather too, helping to keep it soft and supple.
