Cleaning Smooth Leathers With Saphir Reno’Mat

Saphir Reno’Mat is one of the best all purpose smooth leather cleaners we stock here at Valentino Garemi. It gently removes all manner of soil and residue from your shoes, bags, accessories and can even be used on large items such as furniture and car interiors to excellent effect. If you have room for just one leather cleaner in your shoe shine kit Reno’Mat is a superlative choice.
Leathers Treated *
Any smooth leather benefits from a thorough cleaning with this French-made product. Specialty leathers and even delicate leathers like calf are cleared of soil, grease and various shoe care product buildups that dull the surface and prevent the shoe, boots or other leather items from breathing.
When To Use

If you have been using a different brand of shoe care products but are now upgrading to one of our premium shoe care lines using Reno’Mat to prepare the footwear for your new regimen is a great idea. This cleaner removes so much more than simple dirt.

● Silicone is an ingredients in many inexpensive shoe polishes and protectants. Reno’Mat completely releases this coating from your leather, opening pores as it deeply cleanses.
● Resins are also banished from your leathers after a cleaning with Reno’Mat.
● Polish mistakes and overzealous coverage can be corrected with an application of this fluid cleaner. Return your leather to its original color and condition before you start a new routine.
The Reno’Mat Routine
Once you have thoroughly cleaned your smooth leather with Reno’Mat use it only every few months to reduce residue and correct colors. Experts recommend using every three to four months for frequently worn items.
