Hi, I'm Reena from reena.ca. And this is an easy way to clean leather furniture. One of the key ingredients to clean leather furniture is saddle soap. If you happen to have saddle soap, dampen it, rub it on to a wet cloth and wipe your leather furniture. Now saddle soap is something that we don't all have in our cupboards . So what else can you use if you want to clean your leather furniture? You can use plain old white vinegar. I've used one cup of white vinegar and 10 drops of tea tree oil. Tea tree oil can be purchased at any drugstore or grocery store in the pharmacy department. Or even health food stores. Once you add 10 drops of tea tree oil to your vinegar take a cloth and dampen it. You don't need to wet it. When you are working with leather you always just want a damp cloth and wipe it on the area. A lot of people use their leather furniture every day and don't realize that it does start to smell over time. So you need to freshen it and keep it clean. Vacuuming is another regular chore that we should use on our leather furniture. Sometimes we'll get grease stains on leather furniture. When this happens take some cornstarch and sprinkle it on to the grease stain. Leave it for about a half an hour and then just wipe it away. And often this is all you need to absorb grease on your leather furniture. The faster you can attend to it the better. Also ballpoint ink on leather furniture, what do you do? Well you can either reach for shaving cream and put that on to the area or hairspray. You want to make sure that you always test everything on an inconspicuous area first. But using hairspray or shaving cream on ballpoint ink is sometimes all you need to get rid of it. Often times if you leave ballpoint in k alone on leather it will fade away over time. And that's a few easy ways to clean leather furniture. I'm Reena from reena.ca.
