    Best leather cleaner for old settees .. 15th Jun 17 at 5:02 PM
    Rather than buy new furniture when I moved, I decided to keep my old leather settees . They are 20 years old this year, but I would like to give them a deep clean . Any ideas ? I thought of saddle soap or scotchguard ., but not sure.

    have a search for gliptone liquid leather. It cleans really well and they do a conditioner too which keeps the leather soft and smelling nice

    I found some very useful info on car detailing sites, in particular "Dr Leather" came up quite often - the link attached shows some great results.

    I've not got round to investing yet though - either for my car seats (black leather so dont show dirt so much) or brown leather settees that might be too far gone now.

    Probably not advisable, but we use fairy liquid, our sofas are around 15 years old, semi-analyne (not sure how to spell) and it looks good as new.
