Keeping a Leather Lounge Soft

Category Furniture

Could someone recommend an inexpensive way to keep my leather lounge clean and soft? It seems to be drying out, and I fear that it will begin to crack.

Try using saddle soap for keeping your leather sofa clean and soft. It works great on my leather seats in the car.

Contact the manufacturer and see what they recommend. Saddle soap is good but may darken it depending on the colour.

There is a product called ArmorAll that is sold in Automotive Departments in the US. Don't know if it is available in Australia. Go to the website and take a look there....

I hope this information is helpful.

Go to the auto supply store and look for leather cleaner/restorer for leather auto interiors. It comes in several forms. There are foams, liquids, or pre-moistened wipes. Just be sure it says specifically for leather. These are usually only a few dollars a bottle, and enough for several applications. Amor All was one brand mentioned above.

Another trick is mink oil. It comes in cans and can be found with the shoe polish. It has to be applied with a soft cloth and then buffed off, just like shoe polish, but softens and restores all leather product beautifully. It can also cause some spottiness, similar to saddle soap so test in a hidden area first.
