  1. Roger, understand please that I'm not directly...

    Roger, understand please that I'm not directly blaming you. I am very upset with the results. The leather is in bad condition. I don't know what else to say. These are the facts in front of me.

  2. Sorry, I meant to say that I had just coated the...

    Sorry, I meant to say that I had just coated the side (that read 13%) with Hydrator to clean the Fatliquor (this was the final step in the process according to your instructions) so I'm guessing that...
  3. The meter I purchased only starts at 7% and most...

    The meter I purchased only starts at 7% and most cushions and frame aren't even being read. I got 13% reading on the one side of the frame but I did coat it with Hydrator so it's probably not a good...
  4. I don't know the Fatliquor content. I'm not a...

    I don't know the Fatliquor content. I'm not a sofa repair person, I don't own a leather moisture reader (wouldn't even know where to get one). This is my personal sofa.
  5. I barely put pressure on the leather and it...

    I barely put pressure on the leather and it ripped like paper. The left arm is so dry and brittle that I'm afraid to touch it. Hydrator is like 97% water. What happens when you soak dry leather in...

    As I was removing the cushion insert (gently) from the arm cushion, the leather ripped a gigantic tear 5 inches long. This was after smothering the cushion is oozing Hydrator, and multiple layers of...

    Cleaning was done with provided Degreaser and Acidifier. Before pictures are on this thread already. I'm out of Fatliquor and I can't imagine spending more money at this point. I bought over $500 of...

    Well, after letting dry overnight I am shocked with the results. The sofa is in far worse condition than when I started. Deep black spots around areas damaged by the cat, horrible tone throughout,...

    Thanks Roger,

    Unfortunately the cushions were pretty dry this morning. I went ahead with Fatliquor anyhow. It took all day but I just wrapped up the Fatliquor process and will let it dry...

    Hi Roger,

    You did include a brush. I will paint it on to keep from making a mess. Thank you.

    I completed the cushions a day sooner than the frame and have unwrapped them for preparation of...

    Good to know that it will lighten back up a bit. The overall tone is already much more pleasing now though as it's more uniform.

    I made quite a mess when I was spraying on the Hydrator since it...
  12. Hi Roger, I've done the cushion inserts...

    Hi Roger,

    I've done the cushion inserts already as you have suggested. They are completed wrapped in plastic wrap and reinserted in order to give structure to the cushion while I work on it.

  13. Also, one other quick question - the sofa and...

    Also, one other quick question - the sofa and cushions darkened significantly. While the overall tone is more appealing since it's more even, I'm curious if everything will lighten back up a bit once...

    Hi Roger,

    Just checking in with a mid-way status. I've completed the cleaning, acidifying and hydrating steps. I have the sofa completely wrapped in plastic wrap with the cushions separate to lock...

    Ok, just placed the order. I threw in some towels as well. Looking forward to getting this sofa new and alive again. I'll keep this thread update with progress.
  16. I've added a 250ml Fill-up of Acidifier-2.0 now...

    I've added a 250ml Fill-up of Acidifier-2.0 now too. I suppose with all the above I no longer need to order kit V6 as I have everything I'll need for the moment. I'll put the payment in now.
  17. Hi Roger, Thanks again for all of the...

    Hi Roger,

    Thanks again for all of the fantastic information. Based on everything we have discussed, here is my final cart. Let me know if this is good and I'll process the order.

    1 250ml...
  18. Hi Roger, Another question here. As it turns...

    Hi Roger,

    Another question here. As it turns out, the leather on the cushions is decently supple but the frame leather is extremely dry and brittle. Our cat got her claws into the leather in a few...
  19. Yeah, I definitely don't want to remove the...

    Yeah, I definitely don't want to remove the patina. I wont use the Vachetta-2.8. Just the Degreaser as step 1 and Acidifier as the rinse. Any stains left after that can simply stay, I don't mind....
  20. Perfect Roger. I've changed them all to fill-up...

    Perfect Roger. I've changed them all to fill-up versions. What about spray nozzles or do they come with the fill-up versions?

    Also, last question remaining regarding the cleaning process. I'll go...

    Also, here is my cart so far if I a understanding everything correctly:

    1x Quart RTU Hydrator-3.3
    5x Quart Fill-up Hydrator-3.3

    1x Quart RTU Fatliquor-5.0
    2x Quart Fill-up Fatliquor-5.0
    ...

    Thanks Roger. I see in the chart that Acidifier is typically step 2 depending on the situation. With which step should I start?
  23. Hi Roger, I've attached some pictures. The...

    Hi Roger,

    I've attached some pictures. The first one is the mark that my wet hand left. It is indeed darker. I meant that my hand had some brown coloring on it after. I did as you said as spot...
  24. Hi Roger, I finally received the sofa...

    Hi Roger,

    I finally received the sofa yesterday. It definitely needs some love however it's more supple than I expected which is a good thing. One thing that concerns me is that I accidentally...
  25. Thank you Rogger. So, if I took the reduced...

    Thank you Rogger. So, if I took the reduced shipping weight option of the 250ML at a 1:5 ration then I'll need two bottles (so 500ml concentrate) in order to complete the job, correct?
