Perforated Leather Auto Seat Urine Odor Inhibitor - Kit-L5.uk by Leather Doctor is specially developed to decontaminate urine problems for perforated leathers. Aged urine is detectable with its characteristic ammonic odor. The presence of ammonic odor may indicate the shifting of pH value up to 10. The leather will most likely feel sticky or slimy when wet finger testing it. This sticky feeling is a sign of leather denaturing and reverting to rawhide. Stabilizing this sticky phenomenon is done with pre cleaning with LeatherUrineCleaner-1.5 follows with LeatherAcidifier-2.0. LeatherUrineOdorInhibitor-1.2 treatment to neutralize the urine turning ammonic begins and is let to soak in contact for chemical reaction to take place and is very noticeable with a strong sour odor. This odor diminishes as it slowly evaporates. At this stage, the leather should feel squeaky after returning to its chemistry integrity of pH 3 - 5. Stiff leather is relaxed and sticks together fiber separated by LeatherHydrator-3.3. The penetrated stain removing process continues with hydrating until complete satisfaction during a dry inspection prior to fat and oil replenishing with LeatherScentedFatliquor-5.5. In severe cases color refinishing is the last resort for a pleasing appearance. Note that the mentioned products suffix numbers denotes its pH value in this holistic approach for perforated-leather urine decontamination process.
Restoration Cleaning - 1. Surface contamination is towel extracted and remaining soiling is removed with LeatherUrineCleaner-1.5 (pH 1.5) in conjunction with detailing horsehair Brush-1 and terry towel extraction until towel shows clean. The remaining residue is further rinse off with LeatherAcidifier-2.0 (pH 2.0) in conjunction with Brush-1 and towel extraction until towel shows clean. Leather surface is detected for any tackiness and should return to a healthy squeaky feel once the leather is pH balanced.
Urine Treatment - 1 Apply LeatherUrineOdorInhibitor-2.1 and let it soak until natural dry. Sour odor will dissipate once it evaporates completely.
Hydrating - 1- LeatherHydrator-3.3 is applied to soak into the leather to relax stiff and stick together fibers and to wick out suspended foreign contamination. 2- Wrapping the leather with paper towel and wet it out with LeatherHydrator-3.3 is an advance technique to let the leather soak up the hydrator for slow ansorbent leathers. 3- The paper towel is left on the leather to dry naturally; this technique allows the wick soiling particulates to be trapped by the paper towel instead of remaining on the leather surface.

Fat and Oil Replenishing - 1- LeatherScentedFatliquor-5.5 is applied and distributed with a foam brush until the leather is saturated. 2- Continuous second or third application is repeated each round the water contents evaporates until saturation. 3- Leave the leather natural drying for extra softness.

Rub-Resistant Protection - 1- LeatherScentedProtector-B+ is applied by mist spray and spread with paper towel. 2- For routine application, a paper towel is recommended to extract soiling simultaneously.
Kit Content and Product Description:
Leather Doctor® LeatherAcidifier-2.0 (250ml)
This is a water-based pH 2.0 leather acidifier ten times stronger than LeatherRinse-3.0 developed for rinsing and neutralizing leather alkaline overexposure. The effect of neutralizing is to reduce tackiness or sliminess from alkalinity and returning the leather to a healthy squeaky-feel. The objective is to return the leather to its pH neutral of 3 – 5 for the leather-structure chemistry integrity sake.
Leather Doctor® LeatherUrineCleaner-1.5 (250ml)
LeatherUrineCleaner-1.5 (pH 1.5) is a water-based restorative cleaner with an extra protonating or pH balancing function. The amphoteric leather protein fiber ionic positive (+ve) attraction in most cases need to be charged up to attract the other ionic negative (-ve) leather constituents more effectively like the tanning agent from denaturing or reverting to rawhide, stabilizing migrating dyestuff from bleeding, and fatliquor (fat and oil) from breaking hydrogen bonds or leaching that result in stiffness that leads to cracks. In a system to rectify leather denaturing from turning sticky or slimy LeatherAcidifier-2.0 is used as rinse. LeatherHydrator-3.3 is used to redistribute the tanning agents back to the expose areas and Fatliquor-5.0 to supple up the leather when dry. The purpose of this low pH value of 1.5 (LeatherUrineCleaner-1.5) is to revert the leather from denaturing or reverting to rawhide, however other associated leather constituents need to be replenished accordingly.
Leather Doctor® LeatherCleaner-3.8 (250ml) https://www.leatherdoctor.com/clean-3-8/ - LeatherCleaner-3.8 formulated with a pH value of 3.8 is an all-purpose mild leather-safe anionic universal cleaner for all leather types without the potential side effects like rings and browning on sensitive leather or suede. It is particularly effective in emulsifying oily soils and in suspending particulates. It works by penetrating, lubricating and suspending soiling safely and effectively through gentle chemical reaction working in perfect harmony with all leather constituents that include the tanning agent, preservative, dyestuff and especially the fatliquor for a leather-safe cleaning experience. In a holistic cleaning system it is highly recommended to follow through with LeatherRinse-3.0 to a healthy squeak thus prevents or ceases potential remaining residue from overworking.
Leather Doctor® LeatherRinse-3.0 (250ml)
This is a leather-safe pH 3.0 rinse to neutralize alkalinity and remove all traces of cleaning residue to a healthy squeaky-feel.
Leather Doctor® LeatherUrineOdorInhibitor-2.1 (250ml)
This is a water based pH 2.1 leather urine neutralizer. It is for neutralizing the ammonia and alkaline phosphorus salt found in urine from “reverse-tanning” the leather into rawhide.
Leather Doctor® LeatherHydrator-3.3 (250ml)
This is a water-based pH 3.3 leather-safe hydrator with active surfactantcy for lowering the interfacial tension. It is for hydrating dried, stiffed or shrunk leathers to separates the crushed, stick together fibrils and relaxes them. It is for charging the leather protein fibers below its iso-electric point positive for long lasting hydrogen bond with the ionic negative charged LeatherFatliquor-5.0. It is for facilitating colloidal water movement within the leather structure during the wicking process to move soiling particulates to the surface.
Leather Doctor® LeatherScentedFatliquor-5.5 (250ml)
This is a pH 5.5 anionic charged micro emulsion fatliquor with infused leather-scent to rejuvenate leather with softness, suppleness and strength. 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® LeatherScentedProtector-B+ (120ml)
This is a leather scented, non-film forming, non-stick, rub-resistant protector that impart a natural buttery-feel. Its non-stick breathable barrier is essentially to shield the detrimental effects of sticky soiling. Its natural buttery-feel protection increases the leather resistance to wet and dry rubs, thus reduce stretch, scuff and abrasion. It reduces friction squeaks that wear the finishes when one slides in and out of auto seats.
