Leather Furniture Care
Leather furniture adds a nice touch to any home, but sometimes knowing how to care for it can be a mystery. Here are some easy ideas.
1. You can clean your leather furniture with some saddle soap and a little water. Clean small areas at a time and use a soft cloth to dry and buff each area.
2. An easy way to polish leather furniture is to combine two parts boiled linseed oil and one part white vinegar. Just wipe it on and then use a soft cloth to buff it off.
3. Water spots will come off of leather if you dab at the spot with some white vinegar. Make sure that when the spot is gone you rub the area with a clean cloth to get rid of any vinegar.
4. If you have an ink spot on your leather, spray the stain with some hairspray and let it dry. Once it is dry, use a equal mixture of vinegar and water to clean away the hairspray and the stain!
