brown real leather sofa

i have a brown real leather recliner sofa. 3 seater and a 2 seater. normally i use leather wipes to clean my sofa as i know that they are safe to use on it. but when i run out im stuck! as i clean all the time i cant go a day without cleaning my sofa. does anyone know if theres a safe solution i can use on my sofa besides the wipes? i can only get these wipes in a certain shop and i live far away from the shop and only go there when i can. any ideas?

Kittiebunny,

Whilst there are a number of 'make do' solutions to leather maintenance, some of which will do little harm, whilst others can have long-term ill effects, you are far better advised to use products formulated and tested for the purpose.

Leather Training and Technical (LTT Solutions Ltd.) have a product called 'Lazy Leather' which is a combination cleaner and protector use this once a week and in between wipe down with a damp cloth and you will have an ideal maintenance programme.

Judy or Andy are always ready to offer advice

John and Kittie,

I apologize for the hijack on this thread topic, but I had to comment that I absolutely love your accents.

Thank you Torrey,

I have been trying to write without an accent but obviously failed!

Don't apologize for the accents, they are a breath of fresh air here in the states and very appealing

My leather clients' sofas and chairs are just wiped down with a damp cloth to get the doggy slobber and hairs off of them but a cleaning/conditioner would be great. Not sure what to substitute for your UK cleaners here in the states although the idea of a mild detergent and water is appealing and is the best option at the moment.

Leather conditioners I have found here are so non-ecologically friendly. Need to do some research on green or natural cleaners and conditioners.

Thanks for posting this Bunny

Oh, please don't change anything! I really enjoy reading it just the way it is. As Suzi said, it's refreshing. Here in America, we can be a bit abrasive with our wording. Your dialect flows very nicely and is pleasing to the ears.

I have a Tom-Tom (GPS navigation) that is set on a male British accent. My husband knew I loved it so much that he put it on that setting. LOL

It is better to call an expert if you are not sure of what you're doing..

I have also leather sofa. For cleaning I have used warm soapy water and after that use a best leather sofa cream. I canít remember the product name however you can buy them from super market and the cream smells like vanilla.


Best Regards,
