My Loves, I am very excited to share with y’all that my computer has been repaired and returned back to me. And I am very grateful for it to be fully functional and back in my possession.. however… there is a lesson to be learned from this seemingly drawn out mess. Make sure you back up all your files. I lost five months of photos. That is just the awesome-sauce to this whole debacle. So. Lesson learned.
Now. Let us move on.
I am pretty excited to share the topic of this post because I kind of feel like I scored the winning goal with this one. I have my grandfather’s leather couch circa 1970. Yes, it is almost 45 years old but, remarkably in pretty good shape. Except there was one major, major problem. Our dearly departed Rider used to walk down the front of it and then plop down. He did this day in and day out for a while and it came to leave a major mark.
I did not know if I would ever be able to get this gross stain off my grandfather’s leather couch. So, when I found this pin on Pinterest, I knew I had to try it! The pinner suggests that you contact the furniture retailer to know for certain if your leather furniture was made with finished or unfinished leather and if they had a preferred leather cleaner… um, in my situation, that was not going to happen.
So, I proceeded with caution.
So, this is what you do. Take some mild soap, like shampoo and suds it up!
And then use the suds only, not the water, to clean the leather.
And it worked! It worked great! I had nothing to loose. My grandfather’s leather couch could live to see another day! Use a slightly damp cloth to go over the area you clean with your mild soap bubbles after you are finished cleaning.
My sidekick- he was very concerned not only with the stain but with the removal process as well. But, alas- all was well!
Have you got a sentimental piece of furniture that needs some TLC? Tell us about it.
