Recoloring Balm Kit
This is great if your are new to using the recoloring balm. It comes with everything you need to start. You will need to choose the right color for your leather rehab. Black or brown are great starter colors. Include the leather protectant cream. I have had really good results with this product.
Suede Eraser & Cleaner
I use the brush & eraser to clean suede but also to remove spots, dirt, and scuffs off of leathers too. Works great on leather shoes, nubuck, minimally finished leathers, and some scuffs on heavily finished leathers. Check out my content for the 'wet method' and 'dry method' for cleaning suedes. For the wet method, I like the Angelus easy suede cleaning solution. Can be purchased as a full kit here if you need the cleaner and a brush.
Recoloring Balm/ Kit
I use this as a scuff cover & recolor agent. You will need to choose the right color for your leather, but I have found the black to be a great investment. Restores faded and dry leathers but should be finished with a leather protectant to seal in the color. Great for restoring vintage Coach bags. If you have your own leather protectant cream and micro cloths, use this link to purchase just the recoloring balm. Comes with applicator sponges. Not for re-dying leather.
**If you are starting from scratch, the full kit is a good investment. Includes the protecting cream & a leather cleaner cream. Remember to choose your balm color at check out.
Blackrock Leather Conditioner
This conditioner is so nice on most leathers. Leaves it moisturized with a semi-gloss sheen. Great for conditioning leather Vintage Coach bags, leather shoes, straps, & trims. I recommend this as an alternative to Dr. Martens Wonder Balm, which isn't good for use on most leathers. Not for use on suede, nubuck, or patent leathers.
Weiman Leather Wipes
This is my first step in prepping bags for photos or rehab. Easily cleans any superficial stuff, shines, and conditions. A must have for any reseller dealing with leather bags, shoes, even leather clothing. If your bag has no major wear and just needs a quick condition, refresh them with a wipe down. If you are lazy at rehabbing your leathers, this is the perfect no fuss, convenient cleaning product you need. Not for use on suede.
I clean almost all metal hardware components with this product. Great for polishing hardware on vintage Coach bags. It does smell caustic, but it gets the job done and is widely available. Use a disposable q-tip or old tooth brush when applying. Polish and buff with a cotton rag after for best results.
If your leather is dirty or stained after being wiped down with a leather wipe, I like to use this product. Think of it as a 'mask' treatment for your leather. It cleans and moisturizes. Lay it on thick and wait a few mins before wiping off. Leave it longer on tougher stains. (Won't remove oil stains.) Condition after with Blackrock. Very versatile leather restoring product to have in your tool bag.
KRUD KUTTER KK32 Original Cleaner/Degreaser, 32-Ounce
I love using this to spot clean fabric linings inside bags, clothing, exterior stains on fabric bags... It works on a wide variety of stains safely! Scrub with a soft brush on tough stains. Then wipe & blot with a damp cloth or toss in the washing machine. Repeat as needed!
I have included this item because I use it regularly in my bag rehabs. Split fringe? Glue it. Strap splitting apart? Glue it. Loose seams, peeling footbeds, peeling edge paint, even tears can be stabilized by gluing at times. Most any brand will do. This is my favorite, which includes a precision nozzle and a brush applicator in one. Perfect for when you need broad strokes or when you need just a tiny dab. I restock it in my tool kit all the time!
This product is a cleaner a protectant for plastics, patent finished leathers, and vinyls. I use it to clean up the inside of Lesportsac bags; it gets rid of the stickiness!
