Leather and Suede cleaning is a very specialised craft and should only be carried out by trained craftsmen. Here at Boswell Laundrette we've been involved in leather cleaning for over 20 years and have all the necessary skills and expertise to clean and rejuvenate most garments. We also provide a leather repairs and alterations service.

How it works

We start by carefully inspecting your garments for stains, dyes, weaknesses and suitability for cleaning, etc. The cleaning process then follows using an extra delicate solvent to remove general soiling and stains. We then recondition your garments using natural oils which not only give them a great finish but greatly increase their lifespan. As part of the finishing process the garments are treated with Scotchguard or an equivalent silicone product. Whilst this will not 'waterproof' the item it will help to protect against soiling. (New garments can be Scotchguarded without them having to be cleaned). Finally pressing and finishing before another 3 point inspection.

We use unique cleaning solvents and oils which means that this process can take as long as a week. The best and safe leather cleaning requires specialist knowledge and training. Leather products can be expensive so its important that you take proper care of them.


Stain removal is never simple (especially on suede) due to the delicate nature of the solvent and other cleaning agents. General soiling should not be allowed to build up otherwise it becomes ingrained and difficult to remove. As with all cleaning we cannot guarantee complete stain removal.

All suede & leather is dyed in manufacturing. Some manufacturers use less than satisfactory dyeing methods which can result in greater colour loss in cleaning - something we cannot predict!. However our process ensures that it is kept to a minimum and can generally be restored in finishing. Colour loss can sometimes mark off on linings.
