Leather Barrier is designed to protect light coloured leather and vinyl from dye and print transfer. Nothing can provide 100% protection against dye transfer, but Leather Barrier will prevent the vast majority of transfer stains and make any that do occur easier to remove. Leather Barrier provides some protection against water, oil and alcohol-based stains, but for added protection we recommend applying Leather Protection Cream before applying Leather Barrier. Why does leather need protection?

We recommend that you apply Leather Barrier to your furniture before you use it. Always make sure your furniture is free of dirt and dust before applying Leather Barrier. If the furniture has been used, we recommend cleaning it with Leather Soft Cleaner before applying Leather Barrier.
Leather Barrier will need to be re-applied every 3-6 months. Before re-applying Leather Barrier, thoroughly clean your furniture with Leather Soft Cleaner
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 aniline and 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. Allow the area to dry for 30 minutes, and check if there are any changes to the colour of the leather. To shorten the drying time, the area can be dried using a hair dryer. Hold the hair dryer at least 30 cm from the leather and dry the area using a slow sweeping motion. Take care not to over-heat or burn the leather. If you notice colour transfer or any visible changes to the leather, do use the product on that piece of furniture. Contact us for more information.
