Just as your own skin needs oils (lotions) to maintain its soft, smooth appearance so does your natural leather and suede garment. Over time your suedes and leathers dry and loose their natural oils. Part of the TLC professional cleaning process is to re-oil skins to revive the softness.
A second step to the revitalization process is the re-staining / re-dying of most suede and leather garments. Through regular wear and part of the cleaning process some of the original dye colour will be lost. TLC Cleaners hand mixes each dye to achieve the closest colour match possible. (always remember to clean coordinate pieces together to insure exact colour match).
The final procedure includes "shower proofing" of each garment. This coating will help prevent future stains (body oils, food, rain marks) from setting deep into the skin causing permanent damage.
With regular wear most suede and leathers need to be cleaned once every couple of years to remove soil build up and revive oils lost in wear. TLC's professional leather cleaning method ensures your suede and leathers will last you a lifetime.
It is important to note that stains on Suede and leathers, unlike on cloth, can re dye or chemically bind to the hide and therefore can not always be safely removed as readily as on cloth garments. Dying will not mask most stains that can not be removed, leathers hardened by age or fading due to oxidized colour loss. Returning your Suede and Leather garments to it's original colour therefore can not be guaranteed. What is guaranteed is that we will do our best but we can not turn back time!
