  • I also have a leather sofa and mine is white and it was looking SO dirty! I started using a different store and they have this stuff called rustic touch, it is AMAZING!!! My white couch was looking almost brown and all you do is spray it on the couch and wipe it off and it is white again.

  • I use dish detergent on a hot wet sponge. Sometimes if it is something sticky I use a drop of Mr. Clean. I constantly clean mine.

  • Be careful using cleaners that are not made for leather, it can dry it out and cause it to crack over time. I swear by Lexol leather cleaner and conditioner for my living room furniture as well as leather car seats. My sofa and love seat are 5 years old and they still look brand new.
