Leather Revive is a water-based, oil emulsion that forms a rich cream-like product that revives older leathers that have become hard, brittle and dried out.When applied to leather, the product penetrates the surface, coating each individual fibre with a balanced application of natural oil, making the leather much softer.
One application of Leather Revive is enough to soften the majority of leathers. If your leather is particularly stiff or brittle you can apply more product to further soften the leather.
This product can be used independently or it can be used during the restoration process to soften the leather before making any repairs or applying colour or finish.
If you attempt to restore old, hard or brittle leather without softening it first, the leather will likely crack with use; this will then cause any coatings to crack.
It doesn’t matter how flexible the coating is, if the leather beneath it cracks, the coating will too. Leather Revive will prevent this from happening.
Leather Revive can be used on all different articles of leather, from furniture and car interior to clothes, shoes, handbags and even equestrian leathers. It works on all colours of leather and all different grain types.

Apply a generous coating of Leather Revive to the leather and massage it in using your hands. It is important to very thoroughly flex and scrunch the leather in order to work the Leather Revive through all the fibres. Manipulating the leather like this works the Leather Revive right the way through the leather, providing equal coverage to all fibres.
After doing this, apply another generous coating of Leather Revive to the leather with a cloth and cover in cling film (this stops the Revive from evaporating). Allow to dry for several hours or overnight for best results. This coat will slowly penetrate the leather, softening it further.
Dampen a cloth with Alcohol Cleaner and thoroughly wash any excess revive off the surface of the leather. Buff with a dry cloth to further remove any residues.
If the leather stills feel hard at this stage, keep repeating the above procedure but put more effort into massaging the Revive into the leather as this helps it coat the fibres more effectively.
