Clyde's Leather Prep and Protection Kit


Great question! Not everyone will need to prep their leather before applying our recoloring balm. There's a quick test you can perform to determine whether or not you will need to deglaze your leather:

Place a few small droplets of water onto the surface of the leather you want to recolor.

  1. If the water is absorbed by the leather, so will our recoloring balm. You don't need to deglaze your leather before application.
  2. If the water droplets sit on top of the leather, this means the surface already has a leather finish. You will need to remove this finish using our deglazer before applying our recoloring balm.



Whether you started with non-absorbent or absorbent leather, if you applied our recoloring balm you are going to need a new leather finish. While the recoloring balm improves the life of your leather, it won't protect it from the elements and waterproof it, preventing future damage.

We highly recommend applying our leather conditioning cream immediately following balm application (24 hours after curation). Our leather conditioning cream will protect your leather for the long haul. 




No, the balm doesn't color transfer when applied correcty and given the correct amount of time to cure. It's designed to chemically bond with the leather surface.

There are no solvents, flammable or corrosive materials present in any product except our leather prep and degalzer. For our deglazer, avoid conact with eyes and skin. Do not ingest any of our products.

Great question, your needs will vary depending on what you want to recolor! Don't hesitate to contact us for assistance!

Our 4-Step Leather Recoloring Process is our easy and highly effective method for leather recoloring and repair. Our process is backed by years of trial and error, thousands of customer reviews, and feedback from dozens of professional leather workers.

The process consists of cleaning, absorbency testing, recoloring, and conditioning your leather.

Colors can be mixed to achieve any desired color. Please submit a contact form here, and we will help you pick the right colors.

Any color balm can recolor any color leather. I.e. a black leather surface can be recolored to light brown or white.

Please note: if going from a darker color to a lighter color, more coats of the balm will need to be applied.

Upon contact, our balm will begin to chemically bond with the surface of your leather. However, you must wait 24 hours after application to begin using your leather again. Once cured, you will need to seal the balm with our leather conditioning cream.

Our leather balm works on vinyl and vegan leather.

Your leather must be absorbent before applying our leather recoloring balm. Here's how to check:

Place a few droplets of water on the surface of the leather, preferably somewhere that has no damage. If the water is absorbed into the leather, and the color of the leather surface darkens, this means your leather is absorbent. This means the manufacturer's original leather finish has worn off or was never applied.

If the water sits on top of the surface of the leather, this means your leather is non-absorbent. There’s nothing to worry; this is normal. This means that the manufacturer's leather finish is still coating your leather. You just need to strip the manufacturer's finish using Clyde's Leather Prep and Deglaze.

Decided to give it a go on my daughters saddle and bridle. Both look amazing. x

Excellent product that brought my tack back to life!

It works and doesn't leave any black marks on my jodhpurs once it is dry!

 I recently used this product and it did an amazing job! My saddle looks wonderful and there was no transfer onto my riding pants.
