Ideal for cleaning leather car and furniture upholstery, bags, suitcases or garments.The Leather Cleaner is provided in a foam dispenser bottle. Foams clean the leather more efficiently than liquid agents, the consumption is considerably smaller, and the leather does not become wet, which could otherwise become hard after drying.Firstly, clean the leather thoroughly before refreshing the colour or applying care products. Use COLOURLOCK Mild Leather Cleaner against normal soiling. Cleaning before treatment prevents the dirt sticking to the leather's surface. Our COLOURLOCK Leather Cleaning Brush effectively removes ingrained dirt (use circular motions and work from seam to seam). After cleaning, it is always best to apply a care product to protect it against general wear and future staining.Amount: 200 ml Mild Leather Cleaner. This is usually sufficient for the cleaning of a whole car interior or set of furniture.Amount: 1 litre Application of Leather CleanerAlways test any products first on a hidden area in case they affect the colour.Dispense some foam on a sponge or brush. Do not apply to the leather directly! Clean the leather from seam to seam using the foam; repeat several times, if necessary. Remove dirty foam residue with a slightly moistened piece of cloth, then allow to dry.On older leathers, stains might sink into the surface, or perceived dirt might actually be colour damage. Such stains cannot always be removed by cleaning, in which case, use COLOURLOCK Leather Fresh for refreshing the colour, or ask us for advice.These products are also suitable for "Cool Leather/SRT (SunReflective Technology) Leather"!

For the efficient and gentle cleaning of Alcantara, synthetics and natural fibres in upholstery and carpets. Also suitable for all types of synthetic fibre and natural fibre.Fabrics like Alcantara and Amaretta are ultra-microfibre materials (synthetic materials) which have a surface like suede.These fabrics should be vacuumed at regular intervals and occasionally wiped with a damp cloth. COLOURLOCK Alcantara &
Cleaner is ideal for removing dirt and stains from Alcantara car and furniture upholstery.Cleaning big surfaces: Wet the stained surface slightly with COLOURLOCK Alcantara &
Cleaner and immediately wipe gently with a terry cloth. Repeat as necessary.Removing stains: Wet a sponge or a soft brush with some cleaner. Press the foam out of the sponge. Clean the stained area in a circular motion. Then wipe with a damp cloth. Don`t rub too hard or make it too wet. If stains prove difficult to remove, you are advised to consult a professional upholstery cleaner to avoid damaging the material.Fresh stains should be absorbed immediately with an absorbent, clean cloth. Either dab or work from outside of the stain to the centre. Do not rub too hard. With larger stains, work from seam to seam.For greasy and waxy stains use COLOURLOCK Leather Cleaning Spirit. Work carefully. Test in a hidden area first.To reduce future soiling and stains, protect the surface with COLOURLOCK Waterproofing for Leather & Textiles. Keep heat away from Alcantara. For example cigarette burns can cause irreparable damage.Alcantara is prone to pilling. Abrasion causes the fibres to develop into small spherical nodules. If the surface is not too damaged, it can be restored with the COLOURLOCK Sanding Pad. But if the material is too badly damaged, it has to be replaced. ApplicationAlways test any products first on a hidden area in case they affect the colour.

Before washing please note: Heavily soiled garments or greasy collars, cuffs etc. should be pre-soaked in luke-warm water and the problem areas pre-treated with the Wash Concentrate and a soft brush. With leather garments of more than one color, or those made from a mixture of leather and textile, or with a light colored lining, some color-bleeding can occur. In such cases always soak in LEDER FEIN® Leather Fixative before washing. Never wash two different garments together. Always wash the two or three parts of a dress or trouser suit, together. Fading and scuff marks may be hidden by the soiling and can become visible after cleaning. On some leather types the dyes have not been fixed to the fibre. Others are coated with oils or waxes. Such garments will be clean after washing but will have a changed surface or appearance. Loose buttons or too loosely sewn decorative applications must be removed or secured before washing. Sheepskins with a white underside: Always cut off a small piece and use it for a test. If it becomes hard, it means the garment has been subject to a kind of tanning that is washed out in water. In which case, do not wash. Leather Fixative Pre-treatment LEDER FEIN® Leather Fixative is used to fix colors on leather garments during washing. It can also be used for the removal of water stains on natural and aniline leather. For leather-textile mixtures, multi-colored garments, single-colored garments in black, red, blue, bordeaux and green: Always pre-soak in a basin with Leather Fixative! Effect: Fixes tanning agents, colors, and lipids inside the leather. Prevents the colors from washing out. Use preferably prior to washing. Soak in a basin or bathtub, not in the washing machine. Add half a bottle to approx. 10 litres hand hot water, max. 30 °C until covered. Motorcycle suits: use a full bottle. Soak the garment thoroughly for approx. 60 minutes, moving occasionally. Put it into the washing machine, without rinsing. Careful: The product contains natural volatile acids. Avoid skin contact, use rubber gloves. Wash off skin or eyes with generous amounts of water. Keep away from children. Leather & Fur Washing Concentrate Hand Wash Instructions Suitable for hand-washing all suede and nappa leathers, including jackets, coats, shirts, trousers, motorcycle suits and gloves. Depending on the garment size use ⅓ – ½ bottle + approx. 12 litres of warm water. Cover the garment. Keep the temperature below 35°C (95°F). For a complete motorcycle suit or large coat, use 1 bottle and enough water to cover. Soak for about 30 minutes and wash by hand. Treat heavy soiling with a soft brush. When clean, remove and rinse once in clean warm water. Surface Cleaning: using a thin concentrate 1:50, wipe the surface or use a brush. Leather & Fur Washing Concentrate Machine Wash Only use the delicates or wool program and do not exceed 35°C (95°F). Suitable for all suede and grain leather, such as jackets, coats, shirts, trousers, folklore costumes, motorcycle clothing and gloves. Also ideal for leather/textile-combinations. Depending on garment size add ⅓ – ½ bottle to the machine. Motorcycle suits or large coats will need one whole bottle. Heavy soiling: soak for 1 hour and pre-treat with a soft brush dipped in concentrate. Wash with the delicates or wool program at no more than 35°C (95°F). At the end of the wash-cycle, only spin for about 30 seconds. Remove the wet garment, shake and stretch out the folds. Hang or lay the wet garment on a towel at room temperature away from sun or heat. This can sometimes take several days, depending on the leather…but it’s worth it. Important: Never dry in a drier or with heat! After drying, the leather fibres will be stuck together. Pull and stretch the garment into shape in all directions and, if needed, cold tumble dry (inside out), for about 15 - 30 minutes. Do not use heat. Nubuck and suede should be brushed with a soft brush. The Care of Leather Garments Coated Top-Grain Leather Many top-grain leathers (such as motorcycle leather) have pigmented protective coatings to make them waterproof and more resistant to fading and staining. These leathers are easy to recognize, as rubbed-on moisture will not sink in and darken the leather. Care instructions: Scuffs and wear can be easily repaired with COLOURLOCK Leather Fresh in the correct tone. Top-Grain leather clothing should be protected and nourished by wiping with LEDER FEIN® Leather Care & Waterproofing Oil at least twice a year. This prevents cracking, shrinkage and stains. Open Pored Top Grain Leather (napa, aniline) These are leathers which are dyed throughout but, in order to maintain their look and feel, their surfaces have not been coated. A little pressure or rubbing with moisture will darken these. Care instructions: Regular treatment with COLOURLOCK Aniline Cream (every 2-3 months) will prevent water or fat stains. Older aniline leathers can be revitalized by regular treatment with our COLOURLOCK Aniline Protector. This adds softening oils, anti-oxidants, UV-filters and intensifies the dyes. For heavy fading consult a leather professional. Suedes and Nubucks These are leathers with a velour (slightly furry) surface. Typical are pig, goat, cow-hide, nubuck or suede, deerskin, elk and lamb. Care instructions: treat at least 1-2 times per year with our COLOURLOCK Aniline Protector, an aerosol designed to protect against fading and dryness. It is also ideal for re-conditioning suedes and nubucks after washing. It restores the freshness of the color. Heavy fading of all kinds of leather can only be restored by a professional. Do not forget to waterproof the open surface of such leathers with LEDER FEIN® Leather Waterproofing Pump Spray. To remove light soiling, brush with our soft Leather Brush or use the Nubuck Eraser.

Removes ballpoint pen marks and similar discolouration from pigmented top-grain leather.Ballpoint pen marks are not easy to remove from furniture and car
leather. If the mark is fresh, there is a better chance of cleaning it
off but, if it has been there for more than three days, the area will
have to be coloured.
ApplicationBefore starting to remove pen marks, first identify the type of leather. Incorrect cleaning methods can increase the damage. We distinguish between the following types of leather when cleaning stains and marks:Pigmented leather: Pigmented smooth leather is leather with a protective layer of paint on the surface. A drop of water rubbed in does not sink into the leather but rolls off. Pigmented leathers generally have a satin finish and a grained surface.Aniline leather is porous, smooth leather. A drop of water rubbed in will penetrate and darken the surface.Suede is the reverse side of a smooth leather or both sides of split leather.Nubuck is the sanded grain side of a smooth leather to create a soft, velvety effect.PU-Leather / Bycast leather / Bicast leather is a split leather (suede) with a grained film of polyurethane applied to the surface. Such leather is usually shiny with a plastic-like appearance. STROKES FROM BALLPOINT PENS STROKES FROM BALLPOINT PENS ON PIGMENTED LEATHER Ballpoint pen lines on furniture and car leather occur quite often. Unfortunately, these are not always easily removable.Please note the following: The fresher a ballpoint pen mark is, the easier it is to remove. When the ballpoint pen mark is older than three days, it is rarely possible to just clean and remove the mark. In most cases, this will have to be coloured. Whole drawings by children are much more difficult to remove than short lines. Cleaning attempts with the wrong products often increase the damage. Procedure: Always test first on a hidden area. Ideally, draw a line on this hidden area and clean vigorously, to give you an idea how effective it would be on the visible area. If it’s easy to clean, there should be no cause for concern. Some pens lose a lot of ink. To avoid spreading the ink, absorb the excess using masking tape. Next apply the Ballpoint Pen Remover. Press and hold the tip until it gets wet. Remove the ink stains with light circular movements, across a small radius and with little pressure. The liquid softens the area and dissolves the ink. Always remove dissolved ink with a cloth to avoid the stain spreading and clean the tip if necessary. The tip of the pen is designed to work on both sides so you can turn it upside down and re-insert, as required. Repeat the process and, if necessary, slightly increase the pressure. Older stains cannot be removed without damaging the leather’s colour so you will need to re-colour the affected area. Old ink stains tend to penetrate back out even after the leather is re-coloured. It is therefore essential to clean as thoroughly as possible prior to re-colouring. Sanding Pad can be tested too, as the surface is a sanded surface. Rub gently and work with extreme care and precision. Always work from seam to seam. If there is a danger of damaging the leather, stop, even if a light shadow remains. A colour repair is not possible. STROKES FROM BALLPOINT PENS ON PU LEATHER Most PU leathers (bycast/bicast leather) are dark and strokes from ballpoint pens are not so visible. Cleaning off the strokes risks damaging the foil on the suede. Always test on a hidden area first and don’t press or rub too hard. If there is a danger of damaging the leather, stop, even if the mark is visible. A colour repair is only possible if the leather is monochrome. STROKES FROM FIBRE PENS OR OTHER PENS AND INK STAINS STROKES AND SPOTS ON PIGMENTED LEATHER Ballpoint Pen Remover for pen lines. Where the pen strokes have smeared, use GLD Solvent. Cover any remaining traces with Leather Fresh then apply Leather Shield protector. STROKES AND SPOTS ON ANILINE LEATHER Aniline leather is very sensitive due to the open pores. Strokes and spots usually cannot be removed without the help of an expert. The risk of increasing the damage is very high. STROKES AND SPOTS ON SUEDE OR NUBUCK Cleaning does not provide the desired result as the ink sinks into the fibres. You can attempt to remove the discolouration very carefully with the Sanding Pad. Intensive colourations can’t be removed. Ask an expert for advice. STROKES AND SPOTS ON PU LEATHER The procedure is the same as for pigmented leather. Work carefully and test on a hidden area first. INK STAINS Lighter ink stains on pigmented leather can be removed in the same way as ballpoint pen marks on pigmented leather. GLD Solvent is the first choice. Follow the instructions for discolouration.When ink stains sink into smooth leather, only experts can help. Sometimes the ink can be absorbed as much as possible and be blocked before a re-colouration.Most ink stains on suede and nubuck can't be treated even by experts.
The GLD GLD Solvent ND Pen 40 ml can be used to smooth down Fluid Leather or Filler repairs.ApplicationIf the damaged area is large, it may not be possible to achieve a smooth and even surface with a spatula. Post-processing is required but Liquid Leather should not be sanded dry, as it would damage the repair.Instead smooth the repaired area with the GLD Solvent ND Pen 40 ml. GLD Solvent dissolves the upper layer of the repair substance, so that the surface can be easily reshaped.Open the cap of the COLOURLOCK GLD Solvent ND Pen 40 ml and press down the felt tip several times, so that it soaks up the GLD Solvent. Dab off any excess with a piece of cloth. Carefully dissolve the dried Liquid Leather repair, smooth it down and let it dry again. Alternatively, the repair can be sanded with the COLOURLOCK Leather Sanding Pad after dissolution. Both methods serve for smoothing down a repair. Always work gently and with a small amount of GLD Solvent. Too much liquid causes the repair to "blur".This process can be repeated as many times as required, until you are satisfied with the result.The felt tip of the COLOURLOCK GLD Solvent ND Pen 40 ml can be taken out in case of soiling or wear and be replaced the other way round. This exchange should always be performed after a colour change.
Removes water stains on aniline leather
Can be used on aniline furniture, handbags, jackets and car seats.
Stains caused by other spillages (tea, coffee, wine etc) on aniline leather may not be removed completely but will show a significant improvement.
After treatment, we recommend applying a suitable care product from our range to make the leather waterproof and protect it from future stains.
Jackets and handbags will have to be treated completely. Please read detailed description below.
Application areas: Furniture Leather, Shoes, Bags & Accessories, Leather ClothingFor: Aniline leatherPenetrated stains on aniline (porous smooth leather) and suede or nubuck are not easy to remove. With water-based cleaners, the leather gets wet and in most cases the stains stay visible. Aniline Stain Remover is a special product formulated to remove water stains and other water-based stains from aniline leather. Stains caused by spillages other than water may not be removed completely but will show a significant improvement. It is important to treat these stains as soon as possible.Please note:This product will not remove grease, fat or oil stains.This product is not suitable for antique leather (older than 30 years) which is extremely hard and cracked leather. Water Marks On Aniline FurnitureFor sensitive aniline furniture, aniline bags and aniline shoes, use Aniline Stain Remover. Every piece of leather is different and can react differently to the same treatment. We therefore cannot guarantee the removal of water marks. However, we have achieved excellent results with this method.Application: Always test in a hidden area first. Wear gloves. Apply fixative with a soft cloth evenly from seam to seam (wet the area well). Don’t rub too hard! Otherwise you might damage the softened surface. To speed up drying, a hair dryer (cold air!) can be used. Repeat the process until no further improvement can be achieved.After drying, new leathers (visually like new and soft) should be protected intensively with COLOURLOCK Aniline Cream to avoid new stains. Older leather (visible patina) should be protected with COLOURLOCK Elephant Leather Preserver. Water Marks On Suede Or Nubuck FurniturePenetrated stains on suede and nubuck are not easy to remove. Rarely can the stains be completely removed. However, significant improvements can be achieved. Application: Always test in a hidden area. Wear gloves. Apply Aniline Stain Remover evenly with a soft cloth from seam to seam (wet well). Don’t rub too hard! Otherwise you might damage the softened surface. To speed up drying, a hair dryer (cold air!) can be used. Repeat the process until no further improvement can be achieved. After drying, sand the surface with COLOURLOCK Leather Sanding Pad and finish with COLOURLOCK Aniline Protector and COLOURLOCK Waterproofing. Water Marks On Garments (Aniline, Suede, Nubuck)Clothing leather has the advantage that it can be completely washed. This avoids more marks being caused by local cleaning attempts. Please order COLOURLOCK Wash Concentrate Kit and wash the garment as per instructions provided in the kit.Careful: The product contains natural volatile acids. Avoid skin contact, use rubber gloves. Wash off skin or eyes with generous amounts of water. Keep away from children.
Some smells can be eliminated easily with our Odour Remover, and some are impossible to neutralize, even with a specialized product. Usually, cigarette, animal and urine odours are simple to remove; urine only becomes a problem when it has seeped into the leather multiple times and over a longer time span. Mildew can be treated easily only if the padding under the leather is not affected. This is generally only the case when the leather has been stored inappropriately for just a short time. Please see our information on the treatment of mildew on leather. The smell of new leather is generally not removable.Amount: 250 ml; 1 litre Application Clean all affected surfaces thoroughly before use. Always test on a hidden area first. Spray evenly on the surface and spread with a cloth. Important: Be sure to treat all surfaces and folds of large cushions (including the reverse), as well as any spaces between cushions. If applicable, repeat treatment, then let the items air out for several days.
Dilute the washing agent with water 1:1. Apply the liquid with the Leather Cleaning Brush and brush off. Rinsing is not necessary. Let the shoes dry in a shoe tree. The washing agent has a disinfectant effect, regulates the pH value, and reduces smell.
Since Sneaker Cleaner is in a foam cleaner, the materials do not harden after use, unlike with the use of liquid cleaners. The COLOURLOCK Sneaker Cleaner is available in a practical foam dispenser bottle so it’s easy to use just the right amount and consumption remains low.
The Nubuck Eraser, along with the Leather Sanding Pad, will remove stains from suede and nubuck. The Sanding Pad should be applied to larger areas, while the Eraser is more appropriate for individual crusty stains. The Eraser can also be used to remove dirt on hard surfaces (such as shoes) and sleeve/collar edges of leather clothing. Application Localized soiling is often not easy to remove. Using a corner of the Eraser, rub the affected area in a circular motion. If a stain proves too resistant, you may have to stop to prevent damaging the leather surface.
Aniline and Nubuck Cleaner is suitable for
open-pored, fine-grained smooth leather, aniline leather, suede, velvety buffed
leather and nubuck leather, as well as oiled and greased leather. They must be
re-oiled or greased after cleaning.
In particular, nubuck and aniline leather
are very susceptible to stains and dirt and quickly become greasy. The leather
absorbs liquids very quickly, which often results in water marks. With this
product, which is a further development of the popular COLOURLOCK Aniline
Cleaner, water residues almost never form on the leather after cleaning, even
with a "wet" cleaning.
COLOURLOCK Aniline and Nubuck Cleaner is
used in the furniture and automotive sectors.
Aniline leathers and nubuck are open-pored
smooth leathers. Nubuck absorbs moisture and dirt more quickly due to its
extremely opened surface. These open-pored leathers are more sensitive to
soiling than surface-dyed leathers.
COLOURLOCK Aniline and Nubuck Cleaner frees
aniline and nubuck leather from dirt without leaving water residues on the
The cleaner does not contain any solvents.
It is made with plant-based active ingredients and does not contain synthetic
odors. COLOURLOCK Aniline and Nubuck Cleaner is gentle yet effective. It is
gentle on both colors and materials.
Because leather types are very sensitive,
test the product on a hidden area before first use.
If you are unsure, contact our customer
service by phone and send us photos to email@example.com. We will be glad to
As the product is easy to apply, both
private customers and commercial customers can use it comfortably.
Nevertheless, if you have very heavy soiling, contact a specialist company in
order to avoid even greater damage. Here, too, we will be happy to help you
Although the product is gentle, test it in
a non-visible area when using it for the first time. After testing, use
COLOURLOCK Aniline and Nubuck Cleaner as described below.
DO NOT apply the cleaner directly to the
soiled area. Instead, apply it onto a sponge or a leather cleaning brush
wrapped with a microfiber cloth, cotton cloth or terry cloth, lathering it up
slightly. Apply the product “wet” and work carefully in a circular motion from
seam to seam to avoid streaking. This process can be repeated if
CAUTION: When using a leather cleaning
brush, do not rub too hard in order to avoid damaging the sensitive leather and
to avoid rubbing off the color of open-pored leather. Check for color abrasion
After cleaning is complete, let it dry at
Due to a small addition of a neutral synthetic
resin, the product binds with the dirt in a fine crystalline form. As a result,
the cleaner acts as a drying aid as well as an anti-soiling agent and prevents
the formation of water spots.
Make sure that the leather is completely
dry before applying a care or re-greasing product. After it is dry, use the
appropriate care products to nurture it and protect it against new soiling.
With the correct products, the leather becomes less sensitive, and the next
cleaning will be easier.
The appropriate care product depends on the
type of leather. We carry a range of products such as Aniline and Nubuck
Protector, Aniline Cream, Gloss Cream, and Elephant Leather Preserver. Ask us
