    Default Which Products to use on Eames style lounge chair

    Hello - I have an Eames style (possibly Plycraft brand) lounge chair that I would like to clean and restore as much as possible. It has staining and sun fading. I am unsure of the exact material and therefore not sure which products to use. Any help would be appreciated. Attaching photos.

    The surface accumulated soiling is first removed with either Prep-7.7 for non-absorbent leathers and Prep-4.4 for absorbent leathers. There after the remaining residue is removed with Clean-3.8 > Rinse-3.0 system

    Part of the stain in most cases is also removed. Otherwise remaining dye related stains are removed with CleanDye-7.9 > Acidifier-2.0 to pH balance to the leather pH neutral.

    Sun fading restoration will need a color refinishing.

    Note:
    Test out with some water to see if it pools on its surface or absorbed and darkens.

    Hello Roger,

    Thank you for the advice. I did the water test and most pools on the surface, so I assume I should treat this as non-absorbent leather?

    I also noticed that some of the discoloration is where the body comes in contact with the chair, especially the head/neck area. Will the process you outlined take care of that type of staining? Is there a "kit" that can be purchased?

    Is there an outline of the color refinishing process if I decided to do that as well?

    Thanks so much.

    Accumulated soiling, stains and coloring can be removed - that is color intensity reduction can be achieve - but there is no way to increase a sun fading color intensity from cleaning and stain removing. A kit for dye stain removal is Kit-Sa7.di

    I will provide more tips depending on which direction you wish to go.
