Clyde's Clean Prep and Condition Kit

$84.99 $44.95 Sale



The leather balm will not come off on anything, so you don't have to worry about any mess. Just allow it to cure for 24-36 hours before usage.


The balm is made of incredibly high-quality materials. It doesn't contain toxic substances and is completely safe to use.


The leather balm contains conditioning agents that prolong the life of all types of leather, including leather furniture and upholstery, automobile and motorcycle seats, boots, purses, saddles, and more.


Use the balm not only to recolor your leather but repair scratch damage. The balm fills in scratches and dents, which smoothens the surface.

How much do I need?

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

When it comes to recoloring, better to have more than less. Once the balm cures, you shouldn't apply more. Doing so can lead to cracking and peeling.

If you have extra when you finish the job, we will pay for your return.

Clean leather surface using Clyde's Leather Cleaning Foam and a rag. This removes dirt and dust that has been burried in the leather pores.


If leather isn't absorbent, remove original finish using our Clyde's Leather Preparer and Deglazer. This will strip the leather of oils that make it non-absorbent.


Apply Clyde’s Leather Recoloring Balm in a conservative manner, messaging the balm into the leather using the sponge included. Allow 24-36 hours for balm to cure.


Apply Clyde's Natural Leather Conditioner following balm application. This will seal the balm and prevent color transfer, as well as extend the life of your leather.

Color Key

If your leather is not an exact color match, don't worry. Color shading is achieved by adjusting the amount of balm applied. 

  • Darker colors are achieved by applying more coats
  • Lighter colors are achieved by applying less coats

Color swatches are paired with HEX color codes for standardization.

What is Clyde's 4-Step Process?

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.

Can colors be mixed?

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

Can I change the color of my leather?

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.

How long does it take to cure?

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.

Does it work on vinyl or vegan leather?

Our leather balm works on vinyl and vegan leather. The application process is slightly different for vinyl, since vinyl is non-absorbent. You can simply skip the absorbency testing step for vinyl.

How to check my leather's absorbency?

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.

Here's what team Clyde's is saying!
