Leather furniture is an investment in your home that requires special care and maintenance. But that doesn’t mean you have to spend loads of money on toxic leather cleaners and conditioners. We’ve got some recipes that will help you maintain your investment without breaking the bank!

Cleaner/Conditioner

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup linseed/flaxseed oil or olive oil
  • 1/8 cup distilled white vinegar

Directions:

  1. Combine the ingredients in a small glass bottle (like these cute blue ones).
  2. Before applying, shake the bottle to mix the ingredients well.
  3. Using a soft cloth wipe the cleaner/conditioner onto your furniture, buff, and wipe off!

Removing Mold/Mildew

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup rubbing alcohol
  • 1/2 cup water

Directions:

  1. Combine the ingredients into a spray bottle and mix well.
  2. Spray the mixture onto the leather surface.
  3. Wipe off the spray with a lint-free white cloth. Allow the surface to dry.

Stain & Spot Removal

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup cream of tartar

Directions:

  1. Mix the ingredients in a bowl to form a paste.
  2. Use a clean, soft, and lint-free white cloth to work the paste into the stain.
  3. For tough stains apply the paste again and allow to sit for several hours, then wipe clean.
