This is a two-part process involving cleaning and polishing.
1. Use a small amount of saddle soap on a pantyhose. Saddle soap (available at hardware outlets for about $14), is high in oils which allow it to clean and penetrate leather.
2. Rub in a circular motion over the leather until it goes foamy.
3. Wipe it off with paper towels (you should see the grime coming off on the towel).
1. Put 1 teaspoon of beeswax on a soft cloth (and the cloth on a plate), add 1 teaspoon of lavender oil (an antibacterial fragrant cleaner) and 1 teaspoon of lemon oil (to emulsify the wax) and carefully melt it in the microwave.
2. Then fold the cloth in on itself so the wax is in the middle of the cloth and you’re only using a small amount of it (it goes a long way).
3. Rub it on the stain, again in a circular motion. This will both condition the leather and seal the couch against further grime.
