    >>> stained bad.

    First picture shows blue jean dyes and it removed with Prep-4.4 using a reverse transfer technique, thereafter sticky residue is removed with Clean-3.8 > Rinse-3.0 to a healthy squeak. Prep-4.4 is also use to removes such stains as: a) Blue Jean Dye, b) Leather Belt, c) Plastic Ink Print, d) Newsprint, e) Ballpoint Ink, f) Stamp Pad Ink, g) Sticky Label Residue, h) Crayon, i) Chewing Gum, j) Silicone Shine, k) Permanent Marker & l) Accumulated Soiling.

    Body oil, grease and sweat is degreased with Degreaser-2.2 follows with Rinse-3.0 or Acidifier-2.0 for dye bleeding control.

    >>> with some rough seats.

    The roughness is due leather dryness similar to mud cracking as the moisture content of fat and oil evaporates as volatile organic compound. The roughness is relaxed with the help of Hydrator-3.3, as it will swell back and reduces the roughness, thereafter its suppleness with softness and strength is restored by replenishing its original fatliquor with Fatliquor-5.0.

    >>> No rips but they are cracked.

    Improvement to the cracks is restore with AnilineTop-21

    Leather Doctor Kit – Aniline Leather Topcoat Refinishing Kit
    Leather Doctorฎ Kit, aniline leather topcoat refinishing kit is designed for topcoat repairs from friction wear, accidental scratch, scuff and abrasion to deteriorating greasy sweat stains. These topcoat damages are identified as white, dull or darkening stain from bare body contacts. Accidental whitish damages in most cases are free of soiling and direct AnilineTop-21G application with in between dry sanding rectifies most damages. Repairs to topcoat from daily wears that dulls will require a degreasing to remove penetrated rub-in soiling prior to topcoat application in a sequence process including Degreaser-2.2 follows with Rinse-3.0; Hydrator-3.3 follows with Fatliquor-5.0 prior to topcoat application. In a greasy and sweaty topcoat damaged areas especially to the headrest and armrest, a deep degreasing is essential follows with Acidifier-2.0 to stabilize the hydrogen bonding between the protein fibers with the other leather constituent like the tanning agent, dyestuff and fatliquor. This deep degreasing process is assisted by leather Eraser-4 in both the wet and dry cleaning process to remove soiling particulates off the leather surface. Hydrator-3.3 helps in the colloidal water movement bringing suspended soiling particulates to resurface through a dwelling and wicking process. Fat and oil is replenished by Fatliquor-5.0 in an emulsion form to penetrate into the leather structure. Once the fat and oil is hydrogen bond with the protein fiber, the water content breaks free leaving a breathing space for natural transpiration. The fat plumps the leather with fullness preventing the leather structure from collapsing during compressing and flexing while the oil lubricates the fiber from sliding smoothly over one another like millions of connecting hinges. Protector-B+ impart a non-stick, rub-resistant surface with a buttery feel helps reduce friction wear to the topcoat and extended a high level of appearance for a longer period of time. When the leather is contaminated with foreign soiling, it is essential to look at topcoat refinishing in a holistic approach. Note that the cleaning and rejuvenating products suffix denotes its pH value in this leather-safe aniline leathers topcoat refinishing system. This kit comes with reduced weight option to save on shipping thus the 250ml concentrate ratio such as Rinse-3.0, Acidifier-2.0, Hydrator-3.3 and Fatliquor-5.0 has to be cut or filled up with distilled water prior to use.
