FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
You ask, we answer.
Colorwash is one of the pioneering service providers in professional cleaning and care with more than a decade of experience. As a forerunner, we take pride in providing consultation and tailored solutions to address your concerns. Our trained staff will assess your item before recommending the most appropriate care.
Colorwash also spearheads innovation by investing in the development of new and better cleaning and coloring technologies to deliver uncompromised services. Examples include Colorwash Soft Cleaner and Protection Cream wipes (Singapore’s first leather wipes), as well as High-Density Transparent Coating, the industry’s first silicone-based transparent coating that now protects suede and fabric.
In addition, Colorwash is committed to shorter turnaround times, which is made possible by having in-store cleaning facilities. Visit our stores to learn more.
As a general rule of thumb, we advise coloring your item to match its original color. Should you wish to cover defects through coloring, we advise black. For example, if the original color of your bag is white, we do not advise coloring it dark pink. Dark pink cannot be used in a staining process and will require thick layers of color, making the leather stiffer and prone to damage. However, we are able to color your bag to black, as black can be used in a staining process that penetrates the leather.
As every item is unique, we suggest bringing your item to our stores for an accurate, no-obligations assessment.
This depends on the severity of the stain, how long your item has been stained and the condition of your belonging. Given that all stains react differently to different materials under different conditions, it is best to bring your belonging to a Colorwash store for our staff to better analyze it and recommend the most appropriate care.
DIY protection sprays have no guaranteed results, and may appear patchy at times. They are a temporary measure that needs to be reapplied at least once daily. In contrast, High-Density Transparent Coating consists of silicone-based agents that cover all fibers. It is applied on your item by our cleaning specialists, and it lasts about six months in most cases.
Yes. However, results may differ from non-suede items as stains penetrate suede fibers more deeply than they do other materials. We recommend you protect your suede belongings with High-Density Transparent Coating as this shields against any penetration of stains before they even happen.
We do not color suede and nubuck, as the coloring agents will bleed through their fibers.
