    This powder bleach becomes pH 9.9 when mixed with warm water to a creamy paste to bleach dyes stains without affecting the color pigment.

    Note: Not suppose to be used on leather without a non-absorbent pigmented finish as it will denature the leather structure - use at your own risk!
    This product is available in 7gm and 30gm bottles.
    Email info@leatherdoctor.com for prices.
    Mixing Instructions:
    The powder Bleach-9.9 has to be mixed into a creamy paste to be applied onto the dye stains so that it remains on top of the surface, otherwise penetrating onto the leather crust cause denaturing to the leather with a yellow stain. This is done by using non-metal tools to mix with added hot water. Advanced formula includes added Prep-7.7 for a longer more effective suspending and bleaching effect.
    1] Use non metal tools with hot water to mix powder to a creamy paste.
    2] The approximate powder to water ratio is 3 to 1(example weight 1gm of bleach into the plastic capsule, then add 10drops of hot water using the pipette and stir it up to a creamy paste).
    3] For advance longer bleaching action, add half the weight of the cream bleach or approximately 7.5gm with Prep-7.7 then stirs it up thick and it’s ready for direct application.
    4] Keep lid of the capsule closed tight and add Prep-7.7 when it becomes too dry for continuous successive application.

    Leather Doctor® Ink Remover-7.7 (a.k.a. Prep-7.7)
    It's for Pigmented and other non-absorbent leather types.
    This is a pH 7.7 aqueous thicker-than-honey leather ink stains remover for:
    Grease based ink stains like ballpoint ink.
    Water based ink stains like stamp pad ink.
    Dye transfer stains from blue jeans, ink prints and newsprints.
    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 use Degreaser-2.2 as the first step.
    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.
    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 take advantage of dwell time chemical reaction that will produce a safer more effective satisfactory result.
    Bleaching dyes of aged old ballpoint ink stain is an option after Ink Remover-7.7 and it’s only for non-absorbent pigmented leather types with leather Bleach-10.3.
    This product is available in 7gm and 30gm bottles.
    Email info@leatherdoctor.com for prices.
    Instruction:
    1] Let dwell 30 minutes or longer for stain suspension to occur.
    2] Extract suspended soil before it dries with dry absorbent towel.
    3] Let dwell overnight for those penetrated stains.
    3] Remove remaining sticky residue with Cleaner-3.8.
    4] Acidify rinse with Rinse-3.0 until squeaky clean.
