Nubuck Cleaner

Leather Nubuck Cleaner

Nubuck Cleaner is a gentle, water-based cleaner and stain remover for nubuck leather. Nubuck cleaner is designed to gently remove stains and heavy soiling from nubuck and other sensitive leathers.  Because it is a sensitive leather, liquid cleaners should only be used on nubuck when absolutely necessary. For general cleaning, we recommend the Nubuck Cloth.

  1. Dampen a colour fast sponge with water. Squeeze the sponge to remove excess water.
  2. Apply Nubuck Cleaner to the sponge. To prevent over wetting the leather, make sure you apply Nubuck Cleaner as a foam, not a liquid. To create foam, apply the cleaner to the damp sponge and squeeze until the product foams. Alternatively, you can use a foaming bottle to apply the product to the sponge (strongly recommended when cleaning nubuck).
  3. Apply the foam to the surface to be cleaned, using gentle, circular movements. DO NOT RUB OR SCRUB! Clean one small area at a time, removing any excess liquid with a clean, white cloth before moving on to the next area.
  4. Leave to dry, this will take approximately 1 hour.
  5. Once the leather is completely dry, apply Eco Protector or Nubuck Aerosol Protector.

ALWAYS CLEAN SEAM-TO-SEAM! When any liquid, even water, is applied to nubuck it will darken the leather, the leather will remain noticeably darker even after it dries. To prevent dark patches, it is necessary to clean the entire piece of furniture every time you clean nubuck with a liquid cleaner. To spot clean nubuck, you can use a Nubuck Cloth.

We strongly recommend that you check you leather for colour fastness before applying any product for the first time. This is particularly important when applying products to sensitive leathers, such as nubuck. To do this apply a small amount of the product to a clean, white cloth. Rub the cloth gently on a hidden area of the furniture, check the cloth to see if any colour has transferred. Most nubuck leathers are not colour fast, so you may notice some colour transfer, this is normal, but if the transfer is sever, do use the product on that piece of furniture.
