When to use Suede & Nubuck cleaner
Use SUEDE NUBUCK CLEANER only when the shoes are really dirty
Remove laces from shoes.
First remove any surface marks or dirt using the MINI SUEDE & NUBUCK BRASS BRUSH with bubinga wood handle. Gently rub the suede, paying particular attention if there is any sticky residue on the surface. Don’t over brush the same spot in order to wear down the fragile surface of suede, particularly nubuck.
Suede and Nubuck cleaner
Pour the SUEDE & NUBUCK CLEANER into a small glass or cup.
Take some SUEDE & NUBUCK CLEANER with the brush (made of natural silk hair in order to avoid any damage) & start to scrub over a basin or a sink.
Rinse the brush and take out the dirt in the direction of the nap of the surface. Repeat this operation as necessary.
Let the dry away from the sun and direct heat.
Due to the efficiency of the cleaner and its ability to revive the shade of the leather, you should clean both shoes (or any leather goods)entirely, otherwise it may leave two different shades of colour.
GOMMADIN (not always necessary)
We recommend to do this step after using the SUEDE & NUBUCK CLEANER (Step 3) because in most of the cases the dirty spots are removed by this special cleaner.
If SUEDE & NUBUCK CLEANER has not been used or there are stubborn sticky stains on the surface, you may also use the eraser: GOMMADIN
Gently use the GOMMADIN eraser only on the dirty marks.
Natural Crepe Brush
After cleaning, you may want to use the NATURAL CREPE BRUSH.
Brush gently with the NATURAL CREPE BRUSH to help restore the skin’s natural feel. Always use a “back-and-forth” motion and the suede will be as good as new. The natural crepe has the unique characteristic of being naturally sticky, allowing small particles to be lifted from the suede while restoring the nap.
Recolouring and hydration
Spray the suede RENOVATEUR on all the shoes.
How should RENOVATEUR be applied?
Cover an outside area with newspaper and fill also your shoes with newspaper to protect the lining from being stained.
Hold at approximately 25 cm from the shoe and evenly spray the surface with RENOVATEUR. LEAVE TO DRY for 10 minutes.
WHY should Suede RENOVATEUR be used?
It cleans, refreshens the colour, nourishes with natural almond and waterproofs. The exclusive natural vegetable oil formula of RENOVATEUR will be able to restore the original softness of the suede and nubuck.
The new generation resin-based formulation prolongs lasting protection against water, grease and dirt.
You should apply the SUPER INVULNER to protect shoes from getting stained or damaged.
TEST OF EFFICIENCY:
To be convinced of the efficiency of SUPER INVULNER apply it to any leather goods. Allow to dry, then pour some water on the surface and you will see that the water cannot penetrate. Try the same test on goods that have not been treated. You will see that the leather becomes wet almost immediately.
SUPER INVULNER not only protects against water but also snow, dirt or stains. Always remember to protect your new leather goods.
