Interview in 2022
Step.1 Before care
Spray Mist Platinum for Leather Cure Mold on a cloth and remove the shoe stain by gently dabbing with the sprayed cloth. Always remove with a clean part of the cloth, as the cloth will wipe away the mold. When handling moldy shoes, do so in a well-ventilated area, such as with a window open. Do not brush the mold off. It can be transferred to others, and inhaling mold is hazardous to health. Masks may be used if necessary. Discard the cloth used to remove the mold in a sealed plastic bag.
Step.2 Spray mist
Once the mold has been removed from the surface of the boot, spray the entire boot with LeatherCure Mist Platinum Mildew Mist.
If there is a blackened area left on the surface, it is the root of black mold. Remove it with a cleaner (the sand eraser type of Two-Way Gum Cleaner).
Caution! It is not possible to completely remove mold roots. Also, it is not possible to remove blue mold, red mold, or other transference of mold.
Step.4 Apply cream
In the case of bi-color, moisturize with a cream specially designed for delicate leather (Boot Black Delicate Cream). If you want a glossy overall finish, use a colorless emulsifying cream.
Step.5 Brushing and finishing
Brush the entire surface with a hog-bristle brush to blend in.
Finally, polish with a cloth and carefully wipe dry. A brush and cloth alone is sufficient. It gives a beautiful finish.
