The Leather Degreaser will remove all oil and grease stains from leather;
- Grease marks from arms & head/hair.
- Greasy spills from food
- Cooking oil spots or air freshener spots
- Plus any other grease or oil mark
The Leather Degreaser is a thick paste that draws out all oil and grease stains from leather. Common problems are head grease patches that make the leather turn dull, dark and sometimes sticky – the Leather Degreaser will draw the grease, oil and sweat out of the leather totally removing the stained area. Stains that it will remove are;
- Head & Arm grease patches on Furniture
- Dull greasy steering wheels from hand contact
- Dull greasy collars on leather jackets
- Cooking oil spill, air freshener spill or any other oily spill
- Food spills, e.g. pizza, chips, curry grease etc
NOTE: The Leather Degreaser will also draw out ink stains and all other staining that has soaked into the leather (i.e. where the stain is not sitting on the surface). This is most common on absorbent types of leather such as Aniline & Pull Up style leathers.
Leather Clean all types of leather
Leather Degreaser 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 except Suede/NuBuck & BiCast Leather.
- Aniline & Semi-Aniline Leather
- Pigmented / Top Coat Leather
- Oil & Wax Pull Up Leather
- Two Tone, Mottled & Antique Finished Leather
- Clean the leather first using the Leather Ultra Clean. Spray the Ultra Clean onto a Terry Towel and give the grease stained area a thorough clean. If the grease stain has built up over years of use (where you rest your head or hands) you should soak the leather in the Ultra Clean and squeeze the leather through the Terry Towel. This will absorb a larger amount of grease into the towel saving the amount of Degreaser used.
- Using a paint brush, spread the Degreaser onto the stained area and allow it to dry (drying will take up to 30 minutes). As the product dries it will slowly absorb the grease – you will see this happening as the Degreaser will dry to a brown/yellow colour where it absorbs the grease, everywhere else will dry to a white colour.
- Once the Degreaser has thoroughly dried out it turns to a powder on the surface of the leather. This powder should then be vacuumed off.
- Clean the leather as before using the Leather Ultra Clean.
- If the leather still has any grease left in it, keep repeating the above processes again until it has gone.
- Once the grease has been removed the leather may need re-colouring. To do this use a Leather Re-Colouring Balm.
- Then, to stop grease being absorbed again, use the Leather Protection Cream once every three months for thorough grease stain protection.
Note: BiCast (a very shiny and plastic like leather) can react with the degreaser and cause it to stick to the surface. BiCast leathers will always need to be restored afterwards using a Leather Colourant Kit. The Re-Colouring Balm will not work on BiCast leather.
Coverage & Shelf Life
250ml Leather Degreaser is enough to degrease a large head are stain about 5 times. A large head are stain would be about 40cm x 40cm in size. 250ml would be more than enough to degrease one of grease stains such as a spill or splat of oil onto leather.
The product will not go off but it can dry out if the lid isn’t sealed properly. Make sure to store it in a cool cupboard with the lid tightly sealed.
