Pellé Leather Cleaner

Our tests found the Pellé Cleaner removed more soiling than a commercial detergent. We noted the Pellé Cleaner had deep cleaning ability, in that soiling was removed from the pores of the skin

The results also show that the Pellé Cleaner works even faster on leathers which had previously been treated with Pellé Conditioner / Protector

• Pellé Leather Cleaner returned sample semi-aniline leather to near original colour (4-5 using the grey scale standard) after 6,000 cycles using Martindale abrasion with soiling cloth – using Pellé Conditioner / Protector as well enhanced this result.

Pellé Leather Conditioner / Protector

 White aniline Deer skin was returned to near original colour (4-5 using the grey scale) when treated with Pellé Leather Cleaner and Conditioner / Protector. Using standard household detergent only achieved a 3-4 and will also have damaged the leather finish.

Pellé Leather Revitaliser

 Using a waxed and oiled pull-up type finished leather, after 1,500 Martindale abrasion cycles the leather finish was damaged to grey scale grade 2. When revitaliser was applied to the damaged area, the leather was restored to within grey scale grade 4 to 5 of its original colour. Near complete restoration occurred.
