The alcohol cleaner is to be used to as a wipe down cleaner when recolouring leather. It removes grease, dirt, oils and waxes that may be on a leathers surface, that, unless removed, could cause lack of adhesion with colours.
Simply wet a cloth in the alcohol cleaner and rub it onto the damaged area of leather. The alcohol cleaner will remove dirt, grease and grime from the surface of the leather. If the finish is weak it will also remeove some colour. This process is required to prepare the leather for colouring.
After using the alcohol cleaner you would then proceed to make and repairs or re-colour the leather.
This product is excellent in removing biro pen from leather sofas and also other colours which may have "bled" from leather belts or brightly coloured clothes onto your light coloured leather sofa. It has "saved" my sofa on many occasions after my husband has left a pen behind his ear and then rested his head back. It also has a multitude of uses around the home, such as cleaning mirrors, cutting through grease and finger marks from melamine kitchen cupboard doors, removing biro pen from dry clean only clothes and cleaning marks from the front of appliances. I simply could not do without this product and have bought several bottles.
Yes, I recommend this product.
