Cleaning should be carried out using the “SOFT CLEANER” soap included in the ROCHE-BOBOIS soft leather care kit, or using a cleaning solution of glycerin soap dissolved in warm water. Avoid using harsh soaps or detergents.
Pour a small amount of “SOFT CLEANER” or another recommended cleaning solution onto the sponge included in the kit or on a soft, non-abrasivesponge. Squeeze the sponge until it lathers, then clean the leather with small circular motions, allowing enough time for the product to seep into the pores of the leather. The cleaning effect occurs through a chemical reaction that takes place over the course of a few minutes. Take care not to rub too harshly or over-dampen and soak the leather. Rinse the sponge regularly to eliminate accumulated soil. After cleaning, wipe with a clean, damp sponge that has been rinsed of all soap residue, and allow the leather to dry.
Conditioning should be carried out with the “CRÈME DE PROTECTION” product included in your ROCHE-BOBOIS leather care kit and the cloth designated for that purpose. The ROCHE-BOBOIS kit is designed for leather that is sensitive to ultraviolet rays. Using “CRÈME DE PROTECTION” in combination with protective measures will help limit the damage caused by ultraviolet rays. If you don’t have this product, substitute a leather conditioner that is equivalent in its ability to moisturize and protect. Avoid aerosol sprays containing solvents as well as oil-based products.
Pour the conditioning product onto the cloth designated for that purpose and gently spread so that it coats the surface of the leather. Take special care to cover the seat, the arms, and the back. Let dry, then rub with a soft wool or cottoncloth if you wish a lustrous finish.
