How to Clean Leather with Oil


We all love leather because it is very soft and beautiful to look at. I am going to give you tips on cleaning your leather with Murphy's oil soap. This will give it a beautiful look every time.

Things You'll Need

  • Murphy's oil soap
  • Measuring cup
  • Bowl or cleaning bucket
  • 2 soft cloths
  • If your leather is a clothing item, hang it up so you can properly inspect it for dirt and debris. If it is a larger leather item then spread it out or bring it into an area where you have room to clean it.

  • Mix 1/4 cup Murphys oil soap to 5 cups of water in the container you have available.

  • Take one of the cloths and submerge in solution. Make sure to ring out excess water--you want the rag damp not wet.

  • Pick an area to start and clean in sections, using a circular motion and gently pressing on the leather.

  • After cleaning a medium-sized area of the leather take the dry cloth and gently buff dry, using the same circular motion.

  • Repeat this process until your leather is clean.

Tips & Warnings

  • For stains that will not come out take your leather item to a professional.
  • Do not use this technique on suede. Suede should be dry-cleaned only.
