    Default Water stained aniline wax pull up

    This sofa was damaged by water. Is there a way to remove the water stains? Can it be redyed with aniline dyes and reproduce the wax pull up pateena? What products and procedures do I use?
    Thank you for your help.

    >>> This sofa was damaged by water.

    Are you aware of the “Categories of Water in Water Damages?
    Category 1 - Clean Water
    Category 2 - Gray Water
    Category 3 - Black Water

    >>> Is there a way to remove the water stains?

    Assuming it is from Cat-1 Clean Water - then the stains are pH related and can be restored by working with Hydrator-3.3 to re-balance its appearance. However, foreign soiling has to be removed accordingly. Example water may pick-up residues example from the wooden structure that need to be redox (reduction-oxidation) treatment with CleanTannin-3.5 or any metal treatment with CleanTarnish-1.3 > Basifier-8.8 system.

    Cat-2 & Cat-3 cleaning up would include microorganism treatments with KillBateria-3.7 and potential mold control with KillMold-3.6

    So here are the sequence of steps:

    1st - Restorative or Corrective Cleaning with CleanPro-1.5 > Rinse and pH balance with Acidifier-2.0 system.
    2nd - Antimicrobial treatment with KillBateria-3.7 and Mold control with KillMold-3.6 system
    3rd - Dyestuff redistribution with Hydrator-3.3 system.
    4th - Leather rejuvenating with Hydrator-3.3 > Fatliquor-5.0 system

    >>> Can it be redyed with aniline dyes

    There are options to revive appearance and reactivating the dormant dyestuff is one first option.
    Aniline-21 “staining” dyestuff is the second option follows by redistribution with Hydrator-3.3 system.
    Aniline-76 “coating” dyestuff is for surface coating and even out appearance with better control.
    AnilineTop-76G is the sealing or topcoat that locks in the dyestuff from bleeding or crocking.
    Protector-D or D+ is the rub-resistant protector that matches this aniline finishes.

    >>> and reproduce the wax pull up pateena?

    Wax pull-up effect is renewed or rejuvenated with EffectWax-8.6 (the secondary structure conditioner).

    Use this Aniline (A.w) Wax Pull-up Leather Problem Solving Matrix for reference.
