Leather Doctor® Kit-S5.hs, suede tarnish stain removal kit is designed to remove practically most stains that derive from metal including the rusty stain after the protein component of the blood is removed on suede leathers. d’Tarnish-1.3 works by chemical reaction dwelling until it is naturally dry for the product to take effect. Basifier-8.8 neutralizes the low pH with the same dwelling and let dry naturally as well. Hydrator-3.3 relaxes stiff leather and reduces surface tension for an even appearance prior to fat and oil replenishing. Fatliquor-5.0 replenishing rejuvenates the leather structure for softness and strength when dry. The surface wear of the leather is greatly reduced with a rub-resistant Protector-S+ that enhances a non-stick silky-feel to shield against sticky soiling. Note that the mentioned products suffix numbers denotes its pH value in this holistic approach to removing metal derived from suede leathers.
For fine suede, treat it as nubuck (Kit N5.hs) using nubuck Brush-2 / Eraser-4 instead.
