How to Repair and Restore a Sofa and Other Leather Furniture with Leather Repair Cream: Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Clean the upholstery of leather furniture from surface contaminants. We recommend using MAVI STEP Alexandra or MAVI STEP Reagan brush for cleaning. It is important to clean from dust and dried dirt as thoroughly as possible. After all, the effectiveness of the product at each subsequent stage and the result of sofa repair with leather repair cream depends on the quality of this stage.
  2. Matting of leather furniture upholstery. For matting, we recommend using MAVI STEP Abrasive Sponge. It prepares the leather for restoration, makes it matte, improves the adhesion of leather repair cream.
  3. Perform deep cleaning of the leather of the sofa or other furniture. For deep cleaning, we recommend using MAVI STEP Total Cleaner.

  4. Polish the leather upholstery of the furniture. As soon as the material dries after cleaning with MAVI STEP Total Cleaner, polish it with a brush.
  5. Restore the leather upholstery at the structural level. This step is important if your leather furniture has not been cared for at all or very rarely. Otherwise, you can skip this step and go to the next one.
    The best product for restoring genuine smooth leather at the structural level is MAVI STEP Cream Softener. This product effectively nourishes, moisturises and softens the leather. In addition, it has a unique property — to “stitch” damaged fibres of genuine smooth leather.
    We recommend treating the furniture with MAVI STEP Cream Softener 24 hours before repairing the leather sofa with leather repair cream. This is how much time is needed to restore the upholstery of leather furniture at the structural level.
    We recommend applying MAVI STEP Cream Softener not only on the damaged area of the sofa, but on its entire surface. This will protect the leather from further destruction under the influence of high mechanical loads. To apply the product use a sponge, a piece of cotton cloth or a MAVI STEP Chamoisine shoe cloth.How to Repair and Restore a Sofa and Other Leather Furniture with Leather Repair Cream: Step-by-Step Instructions
  6. Additionally, matting the leather upholstery of the furniture. Has 24 hours passed since the application of MAVI STEP Cream Softener? Perform additional matting of the furniture leather with the MAVI STEP Abrasive Sponge. However, unlike the second step, do it as gently as possible and for a short time.
  7. Restore the leather upholstery of the furniture. For restoration, use MAVI STEP Leather Repair Cream, the palette of which includes 48 colours.
    Take a small amount of this restoration agent with a sponge or cotton cloth and slowly treat the damaged area of leather with it. If the leather upholstery has shallow cracks or scratches, apply some more leather repair cream to the damage.
  8. Polish the leather upholstery. Leather repair cream dries quickly enough — in just 20–40 minutes. But we still recommend leaving the furniture restored with this product to dry for 24 hours. This time will be enough to ensure maximum adhesion of leather repair cream to the fibres of leather upholstery.
    After the leather repair cream is completely dry, carefully polish the leather surface of the furniture with a soft cloth.

Attention! Leather repair cream is not glue. Therefore, it is impossible to repair the sofa with leather repair cream if its upholstery has through damage. To repair holes in the leather upholstery of a sofa or other furniture, we recommend contacting a leather repair shop.
