The first step in maintaining rich, sumptuous leather!
The first step in caring for your lovely leather interior (and keeping it that way) is removing all traces of dirt, grease and grime that inevitably gravitate to the leather, no matter how meticulously it is kept. Who better to rely on for gentle deep-cleaning in a quality leather product but legendary English Connolly Leather. What makes their products superior to the dozens of high end products available? Well, they’ve been around longer than any of us— over 125 years! Connolly Leather consistently produces the world’s finest leathers for the most exquisite uses with a time-honored tradition of tanning. On their list of customers you’ll find Ferrari, Bentley, Jaguar, Rolls Royce, the Concorde, elite luxury liners, and the British House of Commons and House of Lords just to name a few. I would be willing to wager that the folks at Connolly Leather know what they’re doing!
Connolly Leather has determined the appropriate process of caring for leather— Two simple steps: Clean and Condition. Leather, though no longer living, still functions like our own skin. Preventing the negative effects of aging and over-exposure to the sun is as simple as establishing a regular leather care routine (experts suggest monthly). Concentrated Connolly Leather Cleaner is the choice of cultivated luxury vehicle owners for its time-tested performance and effectiveness on even the world’s best leather. The last thing you want to do is sacrifice the vitality of your leather with a product that hasn’t proven to be trustworthy and gentle to your leather interior. You can bet your bottom dollar that Connolly Leather wouldn’t still be in business if their products weren’t the best for your leather!
Regardless of how careful you may be with your leather, you can’t prevent airborne dust and oil from your skin from marring the finish. Cleaning: First vacuum the area to be cleaned to remove any loose particles and lift dirt that has settled into the minute pores of the hide. Wrap up the cleaning process with Connolly Leather Cleaner. Super-concentrated for value and effectiveness, just one part cleaner to 12 parts water yields a perfectly balanced solution for achieving pristine leather. Immerse a soft cloth into the solution, wring it out well (you don’t want to over-wet your leather) and gently rub the Leather Cleaner in to the hide. (Always test an inconspicuous spot when using a new leather cleaner.) Remember that you can’t see all traces of dirt with the naked eye, so the best, or most thorough, method is treating the entire surface. Change the surface of the cloth frequently as it will pick up residue, just as it’s intended to. Repeat with a fresh, damp cloth to remove any remaining cleanser or dirt from the surface. Dry and polish with a soft cloth. Once the leather is completely dry, it’s ready for conditioning. I can’t stress enough how essential this is for healthy leather. Even if the leather has been neglected for too long, these steps will revive and refresh it. It’s never too late to start!
The Connolly Leather Care Kit comes with Connolly Leather Cleaner, Connolly Hide Care Leather Conditioner, an applicator pad and a microfiber detailing towel for finishing the job with a final buffing or wipe down.
Connolly leather products are, and always have been, packaged with the green label with the Connolly Brothers logo. If you do not see Connolly on the label, it’s not genuine Connolly in the jar!
Connolly Leather Care Cleaner should be diluted as follows: 1 part cleaner to 12 parts water. Mixing the cleaning solution is easy with the 36 ounce Detail Bottle (available below). Measurements are marked on the side of the bottle for precise dilution.
