Saphir's Cleaning Soap is used to clean finished leather prior to polishing. This non-alkaline formula is gentle on leathers yet effective at removing polish buildup and dirt, restoring the leather to its natural look and opening pours for polishing. Used before the application of polishes or Renovateur, it opens the pores of the leather thus facilitating the penetration of pigments and delivery of nutrients. It can also be used to clean handbags, as this is the cleaner of choice of Hermes in their U.S. workshops. 100 or 200 ml. Made in France.
Saphir's Cleaning Soap is used to prepare soiled leathers for polishing by removing dirt and polish buildup and by opening the lather pores. It is more mild than Saphir Reno'Mat yet stronger than Saphir Renovateur alone.
Dunk our Deluxe Horsehair Dauber into water and work up a gentle lather of the Cleaning Soap. Scrape off excess soap on side of tin (you do not want too strong a concentrate). Clean shoe with brush using a circular motion, continuing to work the lather on the shoe. Once completed, wipe promptly with a dry rag (being careful to not allow Cleaning Soap to dry on shoe). Allow the leather to fully dry (few minutes) prior to applying our Saphir Renovateur Cleaner and Conditioner. This will recondition the leather and restore any moisture that was removed by the Cleaning Soap, thereby preventing the leather from drying and/or cracking. Then feel free to use your choice of luxury shoe polish.
The Hanger Project Difference
Through collaboration with renowned tailors, dandies, and men of style, Kirby Allison has created the world's first collection of luxury wooden hangers. No longer must the well-dressed live frustrated at closets plagued by cheap wooden or plastic hangers. Garments not longer have to limp through life from one cheap hanger to another.
Stop ruining great clothes with cheap hangers! Kirby Allison literally created the new standard in Luxury Wooden Hangers back in 2007 with the publishing of No More Wire Hangers in the Wall Street Journal where The Hanger Project was declared an "Enthusiastic Best Overall."
What separates Kirby Allison's Hanger Project from other companies is the fact that this small business is still directly run by Kirby Allison himself. Just "click to chat" or call the office to speak to Kirby Allison himself. Ever item selected for this website was hand-picked by Kirby and is a product of his unique passion for classic elegance and fine living.
Several unique design characteristics help protect your investment in your wardrobe:
- Multiple Widths. One size does not fit all when it comes to your clothing, and this is especially true when it comes to your hangers. Garments spend more time on hangers than they do being worn, and a properly fitting hanger is essential to avoid limp garments and dimpled shoulders.
- Opulent Shoulder Support. All hangers from Kirby Allison's Hanger Project, especially the Men's and Women's Suit Hangers, feature opulent shoulder support necessary to eliminate shirt dimples and shoulder collapse. The 2.5" Shoulder Flare featured on our Men's Suit Hanger is 5x larger than average!
- Felted Trouser Bars. Felted trouser bars are utilized to prevent the creasing across the legs typically caused by locking bar hangers. Creased trouser make even the finest slacks look cheap.
- Solid Maple Wood. All Kirby Allison hangers are constructed from premium maple wood responsibly harvested right here in the United States. The wood features a rich, beautiful wood grain that showcases and honors your garments.
