Leather Aniline Tarnish-Stain Remover - Kit-A5.hs by Leather Doctor is designed to remove practically most stains that derive from metal including the rusty stain after the protein component of the blood is removed. d’Tarnish-1.3 works by chemical reaction dwelling with a paper towel until it is naturally dry for the product to take effect. Basifier-8.8 neutralizes the low pH with the same dwelling technique and repeat to let dry naturally as well. Hydrator-3.3 relaxes stiff leather and reduces surface tension for an even appearance prior to fat and oil replenishing. Fatliquor-5.0 replenishing rejuvenates the leather structure for suppleness when dry. Protector-B+ enhances a non-stick rub-resistant protection with a buttery-feel that shield against sticky soiling. Note that the mentioned products suffix numbers denotes its pH value in this holistic approach to removing tarnish stains from aniline leathers.
1. Apply d’Tanish-1.3 onto the stain, agitate with horsehair Brush-1 and towel extract until it shows clean.
2. Soak the remaining stain with a saturated paper towel until natural dry for the product reaction.
3. When the stain vanished, neutralize with Basifier-8.8 by applying and letting it dwell until natural dry.
1. Hydrator-3.3 is applied to plumps the leather and prepares the surface for an even appearance prior to fat and oil replenishing.
Fat and Oil Replenishing
1. Spray Fatliquor-5.0 and redistribute evenly with foam brush until fully saturated.
2. Repeat reapplication when water content evaporates until fully saturated.
3. Let natural dry for extra softness and wick up soiling particulates is brushed when crispy dry.
1. Mist sprays Protector-B+, redistribute with a paper towel and ready for use when dry.

It penetrates and lubricates the leather fibers so that after drying they will be capable of sliding over one another smoothly. It softens the leather with stretchability, compressibility and flexibility, while enhancing its rip tensile strength greatly. It relaxes coarse breaks, creases and wrinkles enhance suppleness and prevent cracking. It helps to keep leather at its optimum physical performance and prevent premature ageing.
Leather Doctor® Protector-B+ (120ml)
This is a leather scented, non-film forming, non-stick, rub-resistant protector that impart a natural buttery-feel.
