Perfect Leather Products to Prep and Protect your Leather Goods

27 Feb 2023

We all have a leather handbag that we love, a leather sofa that has been in the family for many years or an expensive pair of designer leather shoes that have seen many dance floors!!

In a world with too much waste and new low-cost accessories available all around us, this may be the time to consider renovating and restoring those loved items.

At Vinny Byrne, we have all you need to do the job. Our Fenice range has a long-established tradition in the leather care industry. We have leather cleaners, stain, mould, ink and scratch removers, leather care kits (car textile care kit, wheel renovation kit, leather care kit with ink remover) and many more products.

Find below three of the most essential ones in the care of your leather items:

  • Leather Cleaner
  • Leather Renew 3 in 1
  • Leather Protector

The Leather Cleaner is a balanced, pH-neutral, water-based product that gently cleanses while thoroughly enhancing your leather’s natural beauty and feel. 

It is most effective for cleaning general soiling and protein or water-based stains. It is formulated for all-grained, top-coated and aniline leather (a type of leather dyed exclusively with soluble dyes). Remember to always test colour fastness prior to treatment. 


  • Vacuum-clean the leather with a soft-tipped brush. 
  • Shake the bottle well. 
  • Use gloves. Wet a sponge with the leather cleaner, squeeze the excess and dab until the stain is dissolved. 
  • Do not rub! 
  • Wipe away all residue with a clean, non-abrasive cloth. 
  • Pure leather with a wet sponge dampened in water. 
  • Allow to dry, then treat with our Leather Protector.


The Leather Renew 3 in 1 is perfect for the care of all leather, such as on sofas, jackets, footwear, handbags and car interiors. Its triple action ensures complete care and keeps your leather constantly hydrated and protected. 

It gently cleanses and perfumes leather; its nourishing conditioning enhances its natural softness. Finally, it creates an invisible barrier to facilitate cleansing and preserve the original appearance. 

  • Apply in light, circular motions. 
  • Do not rub aggressively, and leave to dry naturally. 

It can be used on any leather except suede or nubuck (a soft and durable luxury leather similar to suede).

The Leather Protector is a water-based protective cream that creates an invisible barrier on leather to prevent everyday dirt from penetrating. Its natural ingredients provide softness and shine to your leather. 

It is designed for use on all-grained, top-coated and aniline leather, and it enhances the feel and colour of this sensitive leather while always adding stain resistance. Unless the leather is new, clean it with Leather Cleaner. 

  • Shake the bottle well. 
  • Apply the Leather Protector to a cloth and rub it in
  • circular motions. 
  • Leave to dry naturally. 
  • Do not rub aggressively! It can be polished with light pressure.
  • Do not use it on suede/nubuck (we have other products in this range that look after those).

The products listed above are the basics of leather care but remember, we have so much more!
