Dodo Juice Pimp My Hide - Leather and Vinyl Cleaner 500ml
You can apply Pimp My Hide to vinyl, faux leather (vegan leather), leatherette, pleather, aniline leather and coated leather, but it is an intensive cleaner so you should be cautious if the material is sensitive, delicate, old, degraded, repaired or brightly coloured. Always test on an inconspicuous area first and never use a brush initially or a cleaning cloth that isn't colour-fast (white cloths may be the best). Should you be wary - perhaps because the leather may have been colour repaired in the past - use a dilute solution (50/50 mix with water) and then work up to a full strength solution.
Whilst you can spray Pimp My Hide on neat, overspray should be avoided and the strength of cleaning could lead to streaks of super-clean runs if you don't level it out quickly enough. So either spray and wipe immediately, or apply to a damp cloth and then spread it that way.
If the surface goes sticky, tacky or shows any colour/dye transfer, stop at once and assess the finish and your cleaning process - it may be too aggressive for the delicacy of the surface. Leather clear coats applied to vehicles just a few years old may be prone to tackiness, especially if unsuitable leather cleaners, feeds and sealants have been used in the past.
And remember, Pimp My Hide is for intensive cleaning. For regular cleaning of leather seats, a simple soapy water solution may be enough - or the Cabin Krug interior cleaner may suffice (it's about half as strong as Pimp My Hide in chemical terms).
Please note: for suede, faux suede and alcantara, we suggest using Fibre Reviver fabric cleaner as these materials are closer to a piled fabric than leather in many respects.
