Reach Fullweb

Postby rdb34 » September 10th, 2011, 5:15 pm

Here are the before and after pics of the Reach fullweb I cleaned up. No abrasives were used, just a suede brush, a toothbrush, and a few bowls of water.
I think it turned out great. I wanted to get the stamping to come out a little better. The darkened liner is because I just conditioned it before taking pics and it should lighten up when it dries. I just wanted to show everyone my results.

Simply stunning Richie. Very nice cleaning job. Sure wish I would come across gloves like that to re-energize me.

Wow! Beautiful Job. It just shows what water alone is capable of (on these old white ones) .

Great looking glove. Did it lose any of the soft fuzzy suede feel in the process?

No, once I removed the grime and dirt which made the glove feel a little stiff. I used a suede brush to soften the leather back up. Best results I've ever had cleaning a glove in this manner.

Thanks for all the compliments.
