When liquids, especially those containing oils and fats, sink into leather surfaces they can leave visible stains. Because these substances have actually got into the leather, normal surface cleaning will not remove the stains. It could actually make the damage worse.

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS

  • Darkened areas on leather armrests, headrests and seats caused by contact with hair and skin.
  • Where skin has been in contact with leather bags, particularly the handles.
  • Greasy collars on leather clothing.
  • Fresh oil or grease stains on porous leather.


Successful stain removal depends on a number of factors:

  • The fresher the stain, the easier it is to treat. Larger stains that have developed over several years are unlikely to be removed completely.
  • The more the oils and fats are absorbed into the leather, the lower the chance of a successful cleaning treatment. A few sprinkled drops are easier to remove than a complete spilled bottle.
  • Oils are less viscous than fats and are therefore more easily absorbed by the spray.
  • Coloured or impure oils or fats (coloured lamp oil, waste oil, and grease from hinges or bicycle chains) or mixtures of various substances (sauces, ketchup, chocolate, cream, etc.) are more difficult to remove than pure oils or fats.
  • Unsuccessful and incorrect cleaning can make the damage worse.


If the Absorber Spray fails to solve the problem, please consult professional leather cleaning or repair companies.

APPLICATION


COLOURLOCK Grease Absorber Spray is a solvent-based spray mixed with an absorbent powder. The solvent dissolves oils and fats and the powder absorbs it. The spray can be used on all types of leather. But always test on a hidden area first.

Apply the Absorber Spray on and around the stain and let dry completely. Remove the powder residue with a vacuum cleaner, brush or cloth. Repeat the process until the stain is eradicated or at least partially removed. Sometimes, after a few days, the spots can reappear because the oil was drawn deep into the leather and moved back to the surface. If this occurs, repeat the process.

If any darkened areas remain, wait a few hours then stretch the surface to separate and open the leather fibres. Lightened areas can be darkened carefully by applying small amounts of care products. Always test first on a hidden area. Ask a specialist for advice if you are unsure.

Dark spots can be lightened by stretching and lightenend areas can be darkened by applying sparingly dosed care products.
