At this time of year (particularly here in the UK) it is always a nightmare for your leather interior. You would imagine that the summer sun is the biggest threat towards high-end upholstery, however it's actually the drop in temperatures that tends to cause the most damage, making them dry and prone to cracking. Geist is here to help keep that luxurious leather in tip top shape. 

Step 1.

Clean with Geist Rapid Leather & Vinyl Cleaner

Geist Rapid Leather and Vinyl Cleaner is a gentle powerful cleaner for absorbent leather and vinyl. The pH balanced new generation dirt lifter is 100% soap and solvent free. made from plant and algae based detergents that are readily biodegradable. It ensures flexible surfaces retain their new look optics and softness.

Spray the product onto a cloth and wipe the surface, or spray rapid cleaner onto a sponge to create a foam, and work onto the surface from seam to seam allowing it to lift the dirt from the pores for about 2-3 minutes. Wipe off with a lint free cloth. If needed, leave on difficult stains for longer.

Step 2.

Apply Geist Leather Conditioner 

Geist Leather Conditioner is designed for leather that is no longer new (3 yrs+). It is a micro oil-water emulsion that quickly penetrates into dry leather by overcoming the surface tension. It can reduce or even reverse shrinkage caused by moisture loss and raise the tear-strength of older leathers.

To use, simply Spray Geist Leather Conditioner onto a lint free cloth and spread evenly onto clean top coated leather surface and allow to penetrate slowly away from heat or sun. To maintain softness, apply after every cleaning treatment or once every 3 months. To restore old or hardened leather reapply more frequently and massage into the surface.
