How to use
Saphir Médaille d'Or Leather Cleaner is perfect for removing dirt and old shoe polish. For example, if you want to remove a synthetic layer of shoe wax from your shoes, you can do this well with this Cleaner. After that, you can provide your shoes with a fresh natural wax layer.
Tip: To ensure that the leather of your shoe reacts correctly to the Leather Cleaner, we recommend that you first apply a small test amount to an inconspicuous area of the shoe.
To optimally treat your shoes you need:
• Saphir Leather Cleaner
• Cotton cloth (eg old t-shirt) or applicator cloth
1. Hold the cloth over the opening of the Cleaner bottle and turn the cloth and bottle in one movement so that the cloth absorbs the Cleaner. (Tip! Not much cleaner is needed to clean the entire shoe, so start with a small amount).
2. Clean the shoe with Cleaner by rubbing it over the leather with small circular movements. In most cases, two turns over one spot are enough to remove the old shoe polish. The cloth will get dirty/dark from the old layers of shoe polish quite quickly. Don't be alarmed by this, because this is normal and also the intention.
3. Wipe the shoes dry briefly after the treatment. Let the shoes dry for 5 minutes before continuing with, for example, a shoe cream or shoe wax.
