It is useless to apply Renovating Balms on imitation leather or Leatherette, but Valmour recommends the following:
- A regular cleaning with Cleaning Regenerating Soap to eliminate dust and dirt without drying up the imitation leather. This soap is solvent-free and does not contain caustic soda (to the contrary of household soap).
- Afterwards, regularly use the Leather Care Wax Spray AVEL to keep it supple.
- It is also possible to repigment imitation leather. To repigment the complete surface of a sofa, a cushion or a seat, use Spray Dye Teinture TENAX. In this case the preparation with Stripper Saphir has to be carefully tested before, to make sure that it doesn't dissolve the imitation leather.
- For small surfaces like scratches you can use Renovating Cream Saphir, a fast-drying resin based on a concentrate of colour pigments.
