    Default Aniline Wax Pull-Up Leather Chair with head oil stain and coffee cup ring mark – like to clean, restore and seal it.

    I have read all the info, and I find my self still confused.
    Let me explained what I have.
    I have a leather chair that has oily mark from my husband’s head, stains from his hands and he sat his coffee cup on the arm of his chair now there is a ring on it.
    So, I would like is to clean and restore the color and seal if possible.
    So please let me know which products I need and how much it will cost.

    The first step to cleaning and restoration is leather identification – and from pictures it is identified as “Aniline Wax Pull-Up”.

    Aniline Wax Pull-Up Leathers:
    Wax pull-up leathers derive its color from dyestuff and effect wax that gives the leather a lively distressed look. When this leather is pulled, stretched or scratched, the waxes dissipate characteristically and become lighter in those areas. Sunlight and stretching through high wear areas are two main indications that the infused wax needs replenishing. As this, effect wax behaves just like the primary fatliquor they do diminish through ageing and will need periodic replenishing. Besides contributing to the color intensity, it improves in water shedding effect. Effect wax when applied to the leather penetrates while some coagulates as fine crystal and remains on the surface. The dried surface white powdery deposits are then heat activated and when they melt, they coat the surface with a glossy sheen.

    The second step is to use a reference guide that matches up the leather types and here we have this Leather Problems Solving Guide for Aniline Wax Pull-up, where we can match up the problems at hand and the sequences of process to clean or restore them.

    Removing the oily marks from the headrest would fall under Penetrated Oil, Grease and Sweat under Stain Type in this sequence.

    1st Phase Degreasing:
    Degreaser-2.2 > Acidifier-2.0

    2nd Phase Leather Rejuvenating
    Hydrator-3.3

    3rd Redyeing (Optional)
    Aniline-21

    4th Softening and Strengthening
    Fatliquor-5.0

    5rd Phase Wax Effect Rejuvenating
    Wax Effect-8.6

    6th Sealer Coating (Optional)
    Adhesor-73

    7th Top coating (Optional)
    AnilineTop-21G (gloss)

    8th Non-stick, Rub-Resistant Protection
    Protector-B+ or B


    The above process will take care of the coffee cup ring mark as well especially when activated with Wax Effect-8.6

    Leather Doctor Kit Aw7.cl – Aniline Wax Pull-up Leather Dye Refinishing Kit

    Leather Doctor® Kit Aw7.cl, aniline wax pull-up leather dye refinishing kit is designed for dyestuff and topcoat refinishing after degreasing in a holistic approach. Most severely penetrated, prolonged and neglected stains from the bare head and hands that show a darkening effect with a sticky feel have its topcoat and dyestuff probably deteriorated by the oil, grease and sweat. When the stain feels sticky, it is a sign of leather denaturing and reverting to rawhide from breaking of bonds with the tanning agent. When sign of color is transfer to a white towel, it indicates that the dyestuff has also break bonds with the protein fiber. When leather is stiff or show signs of whitish residue migrating, it shows that the fatliquor is breaking bonds as well with the protein fiber. The main component of the leather protein fiber is amphoteric while the other constituents are not; shifting of the pH mainly caused from sweat to alkalinity affects the pH imbalance. To revert from denaturing into rawhide prior to topcoat refinishing, contaminated alkaline soiling is removed with Degreaser-2.2, a waterbased (pH 2.2) multifunctional degreaser that emulsifies greasy contamination besides controlling dye bleeding and charging the protein fiber ionic positive for strengthening the attraction between the ionic negative tanning agent, dyestuff and fatliquor. Deflocculated and suspended soiling is towel extracted, thereafter rinse and pH balanced with Acidifier-2.0 to prevent the leather from reverting to rawhide. When leather feels sticky or slimy it is a sign of leather denaturing, a squeaky feel when wet is a sign of healthy leather. Hydrator-3.3 relaxes stiff leathers and removes surface tension free from surface blotchiness prior to fat and oil replenishing. Fat and oil is replenished with Fatliquor-5.0 to rejuvenate the leather for the desired suppleness when dry. Wax Effect-8.6 rejuvenates the structural wax pull-up effect and coagulates a cloudy waxy coating on the surface to be heat activated into the characteristic glossy sheen. Protector-D+ enhances a non-stick draggy-feel to shield against sticky soiling, besides healing and concealing lightening scuff and abrasion marks. Note that the mentioned product suffix number denotes its pH value in this holistic leather-safe aniline wax pull-up leathers topcoat and dyestuff refinishing system.

    Default Failed attempt

    Hello, I have the exact chair as in this thread as seen in picture. I have completed entire routine, starting with degreaser, I did not have the eraser so I will order that. Any suggestions? I’m unsure where I went wrong other than missing tools. I should have taken a before picture, I believe there is some improvement. This is a very lightly used piece. I went on and finished the whole process to see if it would lighten and to not leave unprotected. What should I de next besides start all over and how long should I wait?
    Thank you,
    Kelley

    Default Update after water test

    The area is not as “squeaky” as the remainder of the set. The picture shows what happens when the area is wet.
