>> Leather Sofa Care
You would think that all leather sofas would be created soft.
You know the type of leather sofa you sink right into when you
sit down. Unfortunately, this is not the case.
Some of these solutions come from regular household items and
some are products you can buy.
Saddle Soap is an excellent way to soften tough leather. This
leather conditioner has been around for hundreds of years when
it was used by cowboys to keep saddles and other horse tack in
good shape. It may not be the best thing for a leather sofa though.
Vaseline is something everyone has laying around the house and
it's cheap. Dab a soft clean cloth into the gel and then work
it into the leather sofa in small amounts until it feels dry.
You will want to wipe the sofa with a dry cloth to remove any
excess grease but the leather will absorb most of it. Try this
on a small area first before doing the whole couch.
Shaving cream has been a good standby for many people. You want
to use shaving cream on a clean damp cloth, working it into the
leather. You will be amazed at how quickly this softens your sofa.
Mink Oil is a favorite for many people. You can find Mink Oil
at just about any leather shop and is not very expensive.
Lanolin is another natural ingredient that will work.
A mixture of 500 g bag balm, also called milk salve and 100 ml
of glycerin also makes a great home remedy if you have a lot of
area to cover and a small budget to work with.
In all cases mentioned above, try it in an inconspicuous area
first before doing the entire surface. Wait to see how well it
soaks into the leather.
Leather CPR Cleaner and Conditioner is made with 100% natural
ingredients and in addition to softening, Leather CPR also helps
remove dirt, grime, and sweat. In fact, this conditioner will
also help cover small scratches on your leather sofa!
Liquid NIKWAX is also a great option for removing dirt and softening
your leather sofa. All you need to do is gently apply it with
a clean, dry cloth.
