Use Hand Soap to Clean Leather

To clean a leather settee, don't buy all the expensive cleaning products, buy some soap that you wash your hands with. Get a bucket of warm water, wet the soap and rub the soap onto the leather with a wet cloth it brings out all the dirt, etc.


I did this on my mum's settee, and it shines like new. When you have put the soap on, don't forget to get a dry cloth to polish it dry, and get the soap off thoroughly! Try it and trust me, soap works wonders!

Thanks for reading my tip.

Saddle Soap is the best thing I've found to clean and feed leather furniture.

Well... considering that leather is essentially dried and cured animal skin, this sounds logical. Saddle soap gets pricey, doesn't it?
