  1. Remove dirt and debris. The first thing to do when cleaning dark/restoring leather is to wipe away any loose dirt or debris. Use a soft, lint-free cloth to do this.

  2. Spot test. Before you actually start cleaning your dark leather, you should do a spot test to make sure the leather cleaner is appropriate for the leather. Apply a small amount of Leather Honey Leather Cleaner to a discreet location on the jacket. There should be no issues, but always test first just in case. 

  3. Apply the cleaner. Now that your dark leather is ready to clean, begin applying Leather Honey Leather Cleaner. Apply the cleaner to a lint-free cloth and gently wipe down the entire area.

  4. Allow to dry. Once you have cleaned your dark leather, give it time to completely dry. Wait at least 24 hours if you can. 

  5. Condition the leather. Leather requires regular conditioning to maintain their appearance and extend their longevity. Once your dark leather is cleaned, apply Leather Honey Leather Conditioner as the final step.
