Cleaning Instructions For Finished Leathers

Test a hidden area first, please see instructions for un-finished leathers if there is any darkening.

Mix the cleaning solution as follows, approximately one ounce (two caps of the 200ml bottle of Lexol cleaner) into a spray bottle (about 750ml) add water.

Label and keep on hand, will do many cleaning.

Every month or two, do the following:

  1. Spray cleaner mixture onto leather, usually one seating area at a time and wipe off with dry cloth. Never spot clean or scrub. You can remove colour.
  2. To rinse, wipe leather with damp cloth (water only) and wipe with dry cloth.
  3. Shake Lexol leather conditioner well and pour a loonie size spot on cushion and spread over leather with a cloth or your hands, Let soak in 5- 15 minutes and then lightly buff dry. If the leather is too sticky to buff add a little conditioner to your cloth and buff dry.

To remove dust you can wipe a finished leather with a damp cloth anytime.

To clean stubborn stains or ink, clean lightly but more often. Sometimes soaking the stain with Lexol conditioner for 10-15 minutes before cleaning will lift some stains. For oily stains try rubbing dry cornstarch into the stain, leaving overnight and wiping off. Repeat if needed.

To help protect and soften leathers you can do additional conditioning between cleanings.
