    hello all,

    i thought i would let you all into a secret.

    i had my leather seat bolsters recently recoloured.

    the guy who performed this has been working on leather for 25 years.

    the finish was excellent, colour matched perfectly.

    i also asked him how leather should be cleaned and treated.

    he told me to use a solution of liquid dove soap and water to clean.

    then apply a thick coat of e45 cream (cream not lotion)

    and leave on for a while and go over the area with a micro fibre cloth.

    i tried this today on both my car seats, my sofa and recliner chairs.

    the leather is so much smoother and supple.

    it really is that good.

    i wont use anything else now at all.

    It ruins your clothes though !














    only joking. Pure soap flakes are one of the best cleaning products for getting general dirt out of natural products (works just as well on leather sofas ;-)
