How to Clean a Leather Sofa

Vacuum clean the sofa with a soft brush attachment.

Create a cleaning solution by mixing equal parts of water and white vinegar. Alternatively, you can mix a few drops of commercial leather cleaner in water.

Dip a soft cloth (preferably a microfiber cloth) in this solution and wring it out so that the cloth is damp, not completely wet.

Wipe the entire sofa with this cloth while rinsing the cloth in the cleaning solution when necessary. It is best to start cleaning from the top and work your way down.

Dry the sofa with a clean towel.

For conditioning, mix one part of white vinegar and two parts of linseed oil or flaxseed oil. Using a soft, clean cloth, apply this mixture on the sofa in broad, circular motions. Leave on overnight.

Next day, buff the sofa with a clean rag to restore its shine.
