Wagner's original - for intensive and lasting leather care
Whether the ROHLEDER leather aprons, the ROHLEDER grill gloves or the ROHLEDER knife bags, all products from our company have in common that only the best materials are used. Cleaning is extremely easy and can be done with a damp, lint-free cloth. Wipe lightly once or twice over the area to be cleaned and contamination is a thing of the past. In order to provide the natural leather with a special intensive care for an even longer lifespan, the use of a leather grease is recommended. In this blog post, we would like to introduce you to the unique Wagner's Original care product, which was specially developed for our ROHLEDER products and knows how to impress with its special properties.
The story of how it came about – the best possible care as the ultimate goal
The development of our colorless leather grease was preceded by extensive testing of various cleaning products. We had to find out that many manufacturers rely on cheap lanolin for their leather grease. However, this natural product, which is obtained by washing sheep's wool, does not penetrate the leather very well and gives the material a sticky feel. We wanted to develop a high-quality product that does not have these disadvantages, consists only of natural ingredients and gives the leather intensive care. To achieve this goal, we combined a wide variety of oils and waxes. In view of the high quality requirements, it took time, but finally Wagner's original saw the light of day. Our leather care is easy to apply, absorbs quickly, impregnates and preserves the natural beauty of the leather.
The natural ingredients for natural leather care
The central components of Wagner's Original are jojoba oil, beeswax and castor oil. Beeswax consists mainly of hydrocarbons, fatty acids and alcohol. Due to the fatty acids it contains, the wax is not water-soluble and can only be dissolved in alcohol or oils. Because of this property, beeswax is ideal as a water- and dirt-repellent coating in leather care. Even the Romans and Egyptians used the wax to seal jugs, wooden figures and wooden ships. In leather care, the natural product not only causes impregnation, but also slightly darkens individual areas, which means that small scratches are simply no longer visible. In conjunction with jojoba oil and castor oil, the natural substance develops an above-average care effect, which ensures long-lasting suppleness and the longest possible lifespan for high-quality ROHLEDER products.
This is how you achieve an outstanding care effect with Wagner's Original
Leather care is extremely uncomplicated with Wagner's Original. The leather should first be cleaned of any dirt residue with a damp cloth. The grease can then be applied to the surface with a cotton cloth, a horsehair brush or simply with your fingers. Under no circumstances should synthetic brushes be used, as these are too hard and can cause scratches. You only need a little of Wagner's Original to get an outstanding care effect and to remove light scratches. Therefore, our product also convinces with an amazing yield. The relatively odorless leather care product specially developed for ROHLEDER products can of course also be used to care for shoes, belts and similar leather products. However, it should be noted that the care product is not suitable for coated leather, which is often found in vehicle interiors. If in doubt, you can test in a few steps whether the surface is coated. Apply some leather conditioner to one area and if it still hasn't absorbed after about 5 minutes, it's probably coated leather. In such a case, the surface should be wiped with water and a little washing-up liquid and cleaned with it. With the high-quality ROHLEDER products, Wagner's Original represents the ultimate in a well-groomed surface.
