    Inspection:
    Assess the severity of the penetrated grease or oil problem by checking if it’s through the reverse side.
    When oil or grease shows through, it is more effective to remove from the reverse suede side.
    Depending on depth of penetration; and thickness of the leather structure; several attempts may be necessary as each wicking process brings out the suspended soil particulates to the surface.
    It’s to be extracted with towel while damp and to be erased off when crispy dry.

    Note:
    There may be instances where the stain may not response as this product is design to limit damages to the leather finishes.
    To remove solvent based ink stains like Permanent Marker Degreaser-2.2 helps.
    The types of ink stain will determine whether it is easy or difficult to remove from leathers.
    The safety aspect of removal will depend on leather absorbency, as non-absorbent leathers are the safest to remove from.
    Because stains stay on non-absorbent leathers unlike semi-absorbent and absorbent leathers that absorb the stains.
    So it is more likely to remove the finishes along with the stains on these penetrated stains.
    Permanent markers are probably the most difficult to remove as it may contain the insoluble micro-pigment with sticky resin that adds to its permanency.
    It’s unlike the easier to remove ballpoint-ink with only soluble grease and ink.
    And it is easier to remove recent ink stains that are not completely dried out too.
    The method to remove these stubborn inks is to allow dwell-time for penetration, lubrication and suspension with gentle agitation.
    As finishes with poor wet rub fastness will suffer physical damages with too aggressive a rubbing.
    It is common to repeat several cycles of penetration, lubrication, suspension, agitation and extraction to remove those with carbon or micro-pigment component.
    However for stubborn ballpoint ink, it is wiser to let it dwell overnight to have the product works with a safer more effective satisfactory result.

    Note:
    There may be instances where the stain may seem not to response; not realizing that as it is suspended; it’s being reabsorbed by the porous leather structure.
    This phenomenal will require the work of Hydrator-3.3 to disperse or wick up during the drying process.
    To remove solvent based ink stains like Permanent Marker use Degreaser-2.2 as the first step.
    The types of ink stain will determine whether it is easy or difficult to remove from especially absorbent leathers.
    In most of these penetrated stain removal; the topcoat is removed in the process and need to be replaced; with matching topcoats.
    Except nubuck and suede which has no topcoat to deal with.
    Permanent markers are probably the most difficult to remove as it may contain the insoluble micro-pigment with sticky resin that adds to its permanency.
    It’s unlike the easier to remove ballpoint-ink with only soluble grease and ink.
    And it is easier to remove recent ink stains that are not completely dried out too.
