    Cleaning a leather chair

    Here's a question from a reader:

     Is there any way to clean a leather chair? My husbands chair has "oil/grease" marks from where his head rests.
    Any ideas would be great. thank you in advance,

    Does anyone have experience or ideas about it?

    I have leather furniture, and when that happens, I just spray it down with good old vinegar and rub it till it's clean. Then I might put some leather conditioner on it to restore it a little.

    I wouldn't recommend this on suede leather, though.

      Saddle soap might work, too.

    Rubbing alcohol will shift all kinds of grease. Try it on an inconspicuous spot first.

    I use pledge spray.  It not only cleans but it gives the leather a nice shine.

    a spray bottle of pet stain cleaner. it can work on the enzyme action from the sweat as well as the stain.  I dont remember the brand name of the one I use, but it's in a maroon bottle at walmart

    I just watched an episode of How Clean Is Your House on BBCAmerica and they recommended saddlesoap b/c it both cleans and polishes/shines it.
