Leather goods are one of the few items in which many consumers take great pride in owning. It is a special covering, after all, as each hide tells a story. Because leather is so different from man-made fibers, the cleaning and care of it should be treated differently. Armed with the knowledge contained in this manual, some practice, and the proper tools and supplies, virtually anyone can become a leather-cleaning expert.
This photo-filled leather-cleaning manual goes well beyond the usual expectations of a normal manual. Author Lonnie McDonald has done anexceptional job in creating an easy-to-use picture guide for the proper cleaning and care of all types of leather. With over 20 yrs of experience in leather cleaning and care, Mr. McDonald has done what few authors have been able to accomplish - to connect with the student, and to show him/her what to expect in many different cleaning scenarios - visually. Left out of this manual are fluff, hyperbole, and filler. It is 100% meat and potatoes!
Mr. McDonald's passion for the leather care industry runs deep. He chairs the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification(IICRC)Leather Cleaning Technician(LCT)Technical Advisory Committee, he is president of Leather Pro!, a professional leather cleaning and restoration company, and is also the current President of the Low Moisture Carpet Cleaner's Association. Additionally, Mr. McDonald serves on the American Furniture Manufacturer's Association Joint Industry Committees on Leather Care.
This book will be one of the first leather care manuals approved for the Leather Cleaning Technician course (LCT) by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC), and because science continues to bring forth new cleaning tools and technology, and entrepreneurs demand better and more productive ways to service leather goods, this manual is work in-progress.
Congratulations, dear student, on your decision to invest a little to gain so much. Now, let's get busy cleaning leather!
