Keep in mind:
In the case of very dirty and greasy leathers (collars, sleeves, folds) it is better to treat them first with detergent and with the help of a soft brush.
If there are different colors on the leather or there are combinations of leather with textile material, it is inevitable that the discoloration will not occur. That's why he always uses Leather Fixative.
Never wash two items of different colors. The exception is those of the same color. If there are color combinations on the same item, then wash all parts.
Some leathers are discolored or show signs of wear before they are washed. It is possible that these signs of wear become visible only after washing.
There are leathers whose paint is not fixed very well or they are covered with oils or fats. These leathers will clean, but they will change their appearance.
