The Leather Re-Colouring Balm renovates the colour and aspect of all absorbent leather items both old and new. There are 21 colours formulated for use on leather from a dark to light shade.
It works great for restoring colour to areas that have been exposed to sunlight or direct heat. It 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 on to clothes.
Only one application is necessary. With use, the leather will fade again but this can be reduced by using the Leather Protection Cream. The Leather Re-Colouring Balm is generally re-applied once every three years. The applicator sponges make the whole process much easier.
NOTE: For scratches, the re-colouring balm will only work if the scratch has gone to a lighter colour than the leather, if the scratch is darker you will need a Complete Leather Repair Kit.
NOTE: For lighter patches, the Leather Re-Colouring Balm will only work if it is able to soak into your leather – to test this, put a tiny drop of water onto the damaged area and see if it soaks in. If the leather isn’t absorbent, you will need a Complete Leather Repair Kit (for small areas) or a Leather Colourant Kit (for larger areas).
A large area can be defined as anything larger than a tennis ball.
Clean the leather first before applying the balm, for best results use Leather Ultra Clean – This is because Ultra Clean deep cleans the leather to remove all dirt, but also opens up the pores of the leather so the Re-Colouring Balm will take to the leather in a better fashion.
Rub the Balm into the leather in a circular motion to ensure penetration. 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. For thorough protection and longevity of your leather, we recommend applying the Leather Protection Cream, this will help to reduce future fading.
