How to use this product.

Precautions for use : Do not include in your regular shoe care routine. We advise you to test a hidden area of your shoe to see how the leather reacts. If the leather loses some colour, your shoe is suitable for the stripper. If this is not the case, do not continue stripping as this may damage your shoes.

Sit in a well-ventilated room and cover your work surface with a cloth to avoid damaging it when handling the products. Make sure you have dusted your shoes before applying the product. Start by opening the bottle of product and lightly soaking the product on a chamois. Pass the soaked chamois over the leather, gently dabbing the colour into the leather. Repeat this procedure several times. Repeat the experiment to apply several layers of paint stripper to activate the effects.

Stop applying stripper when the leather is discoloured and dull. Allow your shoes to dry for at least an hour before staining. To finish the new colour of your shoes, apply generously some nourishing shoe polish to nourish and enhance the colour. Shine your shoes with a polishing paste and a polishing brush to get your shoes as shiny as they were when you first bleached them.

Always keep the stripper in a shaded area, a place is fine.

Always and again very good products, used for over 30 years!

Wilfrid S. Verified buyer Gignac le nerthe, Jul 09 2023
lays the foundation for a new color

Without returning the leather to its original raw state before dyeing, this stripper effectively removes the layer of wax as well as the base of the old color. For my part, 2 passes were enough with drying time between (1h30) to obtain the result. Very good product. Thank you to the MonsieurChaussure site for providing all the instructions for use, from which the product is exempt.

Bruno M. Verified buyer Herblay, Nov 10 2022
No clear opinion

I thought that the stripper would give a light color to the shoe however this was not the case but the dye behind set well so probably great for this stripper

Dominique B. Verified buyer LILLE, Jan 18 2022

am very satisfied with SAPHIR products

Lou M. Verified buyer Angers, Aug 28 2021

It's very difficult to remove the shoes I have. Surely I must be using it wrong? There should be an additional guide.

Powerful, for outdoor use

Arnaud F. Verified buyer Asnieres sur seine, Mar 07 2018
effective product but...

..... but you have to be careful when applying, i.e. be in a well-ventilated room and avoid breathing the vapors of the product, not easy but you can get there, otherwise effective and not aggressive on a quality leather; provide more than one bottle for a pair of ankle boots for a satisfactory result

Pierre Y. Verified buyer Suresnes, Feb 20 2018

Saphir Colour Remover for Smooth Leather Shoes - 100ml

The colour remover by Saphir (100ml) strips the colour from your leather shoes.

The colour remover by Saphir helps you change the colour of your leather shoes by completely stripping the existing colour to pave the way for a new leather dye. It gradually works on the leather to lift away the old dye without being too abrasive on the shoes. This product is intended for the occasional modification of your shoe colour, and should not be used as a regular leather care product. The Saphir colour remover can be applied to any type of non-delicate smooth leather, whether it be a pair of leather shoes, boots or other leather items including belts, wallets and even bags. The small 100ml can of colour remover is enough to remove the colour from two pairs of shoes.

Use the Saphir colour remover on leather that has already been dusted. It should be applied in a well-ventilated area and any valuable objects should be covered to prevent accidents. Test the product on a hidden area of the shoe to see how it reacts with the leather. If the leather loses its colour after the product has dried, apply the colour remover to the rest of the shoes. If the tested area does not lighten in colour, discontinue the colour remover as it could cause damage to your shoes. If you are satisfied with the results, unscrew the security cap of the bottle and dampen a cotton polishing cloth with the colour remover. Rub the cloth gently on the leather to strip away its colour. You can apply several successive layers for a stronger colour removal effect. Allow the product to work on the leather for at least one hour after each application. Then apply a leather dye and a nourishing shoe cream to help preserve the beauty of the newly-coloured leather.

Store your Saphir colour remover in a cool place, away from light.
