For Cuts or Minor Holes
1 Place a drop sheet or old towel around the couch to be repaired to protect floor coverings.
2 Make sure leather is free from contaminants like body oils etc by using our Deep Leather Cleaner.
3 Spray the CouchGuard® Leather Prep onto the leather to be repaired and wipe dry. The leather prep is not a leather cleaner and the leather must be recoloured after using.
4 Lightly sand the repair area with 400 grit sand paper and 600g on the leather around around the repair.
5 Wipe away loose particals thoroughly.
6 Cut the backing fabric larger then the cut or hole and place (glue side up) on the underside of the leather using the tweezers. Once in position, apply small beed of CouchGuard® Leather Glue to one side of the cut and press down firmly. Now repeat on the other side. You can use a hairdryer to heat the area, activating the glue and press down firmly. Clean ups any excess glue with water.
7 Using the spatula provided, slowly build the flexible leather filler over the cut or hole in layers. Allow to air dry. You may also cut a small leather patch from the swatch in the Complete Leather Repair Kit and glue this to the backing fabric in the hole to use less filler and make for a quicker and better looking repair.
8 If required, lightly sand with 600 grit sand paper followed by 800 grit sand paper.
9 Wipe area over with the damp biodegradable towel before appling CouchGuard Leather Colour.
10 Clean up with water (Spatula).
