How to Use Doc Bailey’s Leather Tonic
- Apply a small amount of Doc Bailey’s Leather Tonic to a clean, dry sponge and color test in a discrete area.
- If leather darkens or color changes, do not continue use.
- If you like the results, wipe Leather Tonic evenly over the entire area to be treated.
- The detergents will clean the leather, allowing the sponge to fully remove dirt.
- The lanolin oils soak in to nourish and soften the leather.
- As the lanolin soaks in, a thin layer of montan wax is left on the surface to protect the leather and help repel water.
- Rinse sponge with water and leave to dry.
- Doc Bailey’s Leather Tonic dries in less than one minute and leaves no sticky residue.
Leather Cleaning Tips
- Regular use and spot cleaning will give your leather a beautiful, high-gloss shine. No buffing is necessary. Allow Leather Tonic to dry for one minute before touching the surface of the leather.
- For a low-shine finish: after treating the area, go back over the surface before it dries with the clean side of the sponge to remove any excess Tonic. This will give the leather a nice, soft finish.
- Doc Bailey’s is color-neutral and can be used on all shades of leather. In the case of scuffing or fading, simply touch up with a matching felt tip pen and then apply Doc Bailey’s Leather Tonic on top to lock in the color.
