The safe, easy to use cleaner for all waterproof leather clothing, equipment and accessories.

Cleans safely, revitalizes breathability and water repellency.


Why leather needs water repellency...

Leather clothing, equipment and accessories will absorb water and ‘wet out’ when used in damp or wet conditions if their Durable Water Repellency (DWR) has been compromised.

When leather absorbs water, tanning agents and lubricants are lost, which causes the leather to become dry, stiff and prone to splitting. Over time this will cause the structure of leather to degrade.

Additionally, when leather is wet its breathability is reduced. This causes leather clothing to become sweaty and wet inside from condensation.

Therefore, the DWR of your leather gear must be maintained to ensure comfort and performance. Through use, the outer surface of leather gear will pick up contaminants, such as dirt, which attract water, masking the effect of any DWR coating.

Nikwax Leather Cleaner will remove contaminants and revitalize DWR, enabling your leather gear to perform better and for longer.

How Nikwax Leather Cleaner™ maintains your waterproof leather gear...

Spray onApply Nikwax Leather Cleaner by hand…

Shake well before use. Follow care label instructions. Use gloves.

  1. Wipe surface with damp cloth or rinse under running water to remove surface dirt. Use soft nylon brush if necessary.
  2. Lay wet item flat on suitable surface.
  3. Hold bottle 6 inches (15cm) away from item.
  4. Apply evenly to outside of item. Rub in well, paying attention to particularly dirty areas using a soft brush to remove soiled marks.
  5. Wipe surface with clean damp cloth.

Note:For light/coloured leathers and soft nubuck/suede, test on a hidden area first

Always allow leather to dry naturally…
  • Leave leather clothing, equipment or accessories to dry at room temperature.
  • Keep away from fires and radiators, drying too quickly can crack leather.
