Shake well. If leather is dirty, clean it first with Lexol-pH Leather Cleaner. Then apply Lexol onto leather and promptly spread with a cloth, towel or applicator sponge to cover entire area. After a few minutes, wipe off any excess and buff with a soft, dry cloth. For delicate leather, test Lexol on a hidden area. Lexol may slightly darken light colored leathers. Not recommended for suede.
