A grease or oil stain that has built up gradually over several years cannot be removed in a few minutes. Your patience is necessary to complete the job. Also, stains left untreated for a long time may have caused additional challenges like loss of color, cracks in the finish, or peeling of the leather. These issues can also be resolved with products like base colour, glues and fillers.
The Leather Degreaser is applied through a spray. It dissolves the oils and transforms them into a powder that is more absorbent than the leather. This powder is what is wiped off, cleaning and degreasing the leather.
If the grease stain is concentrated in one area or spot, cover the unstained area that is not to be treated. To do this, cut a hole the size of the stain in a sheet of paper and lay it on the leather.
If possible, you will have better results by spraying the backside of the leather.
Spray the product at a distance of 30cm from the leather feathering from the center of the stain to the outside. Allow the white powder to dry fully. If the powder is drying to a yellow color, it means that there is still a lot of oils in the leather.
Vacuum the powder away to see if all the oil is removed. It may take several applications because the powder has limited absorption capabilities per application.
When you are satisfied with the removal and have vacuumed away the powder, clean with Trade Secret Soft Cleaner for Leather to remove any residual powders. For aniline or Nubuck leathers, dry the area with a blow dryer, then massage and knead the leather to prevent ringing effects.
Apply the Trade Secret Protection Cream for type A or P leathers. For Nubuck leather, use the Nubuck Cleaner and then a Nubuck Cleaning Cloth. As a final step, apply the Nubuck Eco-Protector.
