Fixing Stained Leather Furniture

I get asked a lot about how to clean stains on leather sofas, chairs, etc.

The first thing I recommend is to contact the store where you purchased your furniture, and/or the manufacturer. Sometimes a diluted soap and water solution will help to clean the stain.

BUT...all too often you're left with a funny patch of discoloration where the stain was. A great tip for that is: leather shoe polish!! Find the exact color and using a soft, lint-free cloth gently buff in some of the polish where the stain was. Be sure to allow it to sit overnight and DON'T sit in the polish unless you want a speckled bum! :) It helps a lot to make a nasty stain on your lovely furniture a lot less noticeable.
