Ren­ovo Black Leather Re­viver £12.95 for 200ml

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week - Richard Gunn ❚ Ren­ovoin­t­er­na­

Many prod­ucts claim to clean and refresh leather and Ren­ovo’s Black Leather Re­viver is one of the lat­est. With my Saab 900’s seats in need of some at­ten­tion, it seemed a prime op­por­tu­nity to put Ren­ovo’s claims of ‘un­be­liev­able re­sults’ to the test.

The prod­uct – a thick, black goo – is ap­plied in small quan­ti­ties us­ing a lint-free cloth. It’s then buffed off us­ing an­other cloth. Ob­vi­ously, you won’t be able to use it on any hide colour other than black, and be pre­pared for dirty cloths and hands af­ter­wards – gloves are rec­om­mended. We wouldn’t go so far as to say that the re­sults are ‘un­be­liev­able’, but they’re pretty good for some­thing cost­ing just £12.95. The seats’ colour be­came deeper and shinier, and scratches were suc­cess­fully min­imised, es­pe­cially on the worn driver’s seat bol­ster (see pic­tures). There’s a nice leather fra­grance left too, and Ren­ovo claims that the prod­uct also guards against bac­te­ria, su­per­bugs and UV rays. Easy to use, ef­fec­tive and there was still over half left over af­ter treat­ing the Saab’s in­te­rior. You won’t want to hide your, um, hide away af­ter this.

Looks – and smells – much bet­ter.

Scratched and faded –not pretty.
