Step 2: Prepare
There are two types of leather: absorbent and non-absorbent. Before using Clyde’s Leather Recoloring Balm, you need to test the absorbency of your leather. Our deglazer removes all types of factory-applied finishes and prepares for balm application.Shop Prep and Deglaze
How do I apply recoloring balm
Before you apply the balm to the entirety of your leather, it's important to test it on a non-visible patch to ensure you are happy with the color you chose. Use a pinch of the balm to test, then massage it into the absorbent leather.
If the color looks slightly off, you have a few options:
1. Exchange your current color for a new color, which we will send out to you.
2. Mix your current color with another for a more complex color profile.
3. Return your balm for a full refund.
If you are happy with the color, you can continue application! Here are the steps:
Make sure that your leather is completely dry before applying balm. Then, apply a very conservative amount of the balm to the leather using application sponge provided. Massage the balm into the leather by rubbing the sponge in circular motions. If leather is absorbent, balm should absorb almost instantly. Repeat this process until the leather has reached the desired color. You may need to do multiple coats of balm to reach the color you want, in this case you will want to allow the balm to cure for 5 minutes between each coat. Please note, the surface of the leather must be buffed before applying another coat. Failure to do this will result in streaking or flaking. If streaking or circles are still observed after application, immediately buff the leather surface with a moist towel. This will remove lines and streaks.Once you have applied the last coat, wait for the balm to cure for 24-36 hours before using the leather again.
What makes our recoloring balm unique?
Until Clyde's Leather Recoloring Balm, recoloring your leather meant using expensive dyes which contain toxic and harmful ingredients and often leave leather cracked and dry.
We changed that. Our high-tech recoloring balm recolors leather while improving its lifespan tenfold; restoring leather's natural color, filling in old scratches, and usable on any leather surface, including your car seats, sofas, boots, jackets, saddles, bags and more...
How do I condition my leather?
Following balm curation, apply Clyde's Leather Conditioning Cream using a rag or microfiber cloth.
Massage the conditioner into leather using circular motions. The remoisturizing cream doesn’t need to dry, but it may take a couple of hours to fully absorb.
After 5-6 hours of conditioner curation, you are ready to use your new leather!
Why should I protect my leather?
Much like when your leather was originally manufactured, using our leather recoloring balm requires you apply a leather finish after application. This will do a few things:
1. Seals balm, and prevents color transfer and staining.
2. Protects leather from the elements and waterproofs surface.
3. Prevents future damage from frequent use, like leather creasing or scratches.
4. Completely seals balm, improving lifespan of recoloring results.
5. Leaves leather soft, shinny, and supple.
6. Restores leather's original scent.
