Saphir Saddle Soap

Availability: In stock


Saphir Saddle Soap (Etalon Noir), 100ml.

Used to clean dirt and old layers of shoe polish. This product contains Glycerine and is ideally used for cleaning rough and oily leather types prior to polishing. Saddle Soap is best applied using the supplied applicator sponge or a polish applicator brush.

Renomat or Saddle soap?
The main difference between these two is that Renomat is great to strip your shoes from old and/or synthetic shoe polish. This cleaner contains just enough solvents to remove shoe polish without affecting the dye in the leather. Renomat is also a great stain remover and can be used on very specific points on the shoes. Saddle soap is a more gentle option compared to the Renomat, and is as the name already reveals a soap so you need to use this product with water. Saddle soap is great for when you want to scrub and wash an entire shoe that collected a lot of dirt.

How to use

The use of saddle soap is the first step when renovating shoes. After cleaning them with Saddle soap or Renomat you can then again start to nurture and polish the leather. To treat your shoes with Saddle soap you need:

 Saphir Saddle Soap
 (optional) Applicator brush

1. Slightly wet the applicator sponge or brush

2. Brush the saddle soap lightly to get it to stick to the sponge or brush. (We advise to start out with a small amount of saddle soap and applying it to a discrete spot on the shoe to test if the leather responds well to the soap)

3. Apply the Saddle Soap with small circular motions until every part of your shoe is covered in soap

4. Wipe your shoes with a cloth and afterwards let them dry completely overnight.

We advise anyone to polish his/her shoes using the popular and multi functional products made by Saphir. Products such as Saphir Renovateur. Saphir Pommadier, and Saphir Pate de Luxe. All part of the luxurious Saphir Medaille d'Or line of products. All of the product from Saphir Medaille d'Or are of the highest of qualities and will keep your shoes in pristine condition.
