Leather types A - P
Leather Soft Cleaner can be used on many different articles of leather, from sofas, chairs and car interior to clothes, shoes & handbags. It works on all colours of leather and all different grain types.
Type A - Aniline Leather Also called Natural, Pure, Naked or Unprotected
Very delicate leather, it will absorb stains very easily so should always be protected.
These leathers are coloured with transparent dye stuff. This means that you are able to see the actual surface grain and markings.
Type P - Pigmented Leather - Also called Finished, Semi-aniline, Everyday, Pigmented or Painted
The leather may be buffed (corrected) to reduce heavy natural scarring and blemishes in the hides. It is then coloured with a coating opaque pigments and embossed with grain pattern. Pigmented Leather displays good light fastness, good resistance to stains and is therefore the easiest to maintain.
These leathers have combined the best aspects of a natural product (leather) and have utilized tannery technology to create a product that is more uniform in appearance and colour (due to the application of pigments to the surface). It then has a finish applied to the surface that makes the leather more resistant to the effects of heavy use.
What's different about Leather Master Soft Cleaner?
Most other leather cleaners contain solvents like alcohol or mineral spirits. These types of cleaners will definitely clean, but also will attack either the finish or dry the Leather out.
Leather Master Leather Soft Cleaner is solvent free and works without removing finish or harming the Leather.
The only time that Leather Soft Cleaner could remove colour or change the Leather is under the following circumstances:
1. If the Leather is not colourfast to any type of liquid. You can test this by wetting a soft, white cloth with distilled or purified water and wiping the Leather. If colour comes off on the cloth from only purified water, the Leather Soft Cleaner or anything else will also remove colour.
2. If the Leather Soft Cleaner appears to have darkened the Leather, it is extremely absorbent.
The Leather has shrunk. The Leather has not gotten darker, but each dot of colour has gotten closer together, thus giving the appearance of becoming dark.
All you need to do is to stretch the Leather by pulling it in all directions. You will see the colour lighten.
