My husband has a leather recliner that he absolutely loves, and it gets plenty of use from him and our pets too. I went on a mission to find out how to Clean Leather Furniture Naturally and I'm so excited to share what I found out with you!
This chair has had lots of love to say the least. It's my husband's favorite football, basketball and golf watching spot and if he isn't sitting in it, one of our pets is. I've been meaning to give it a wipe down for a while, but honestly, I had no idea what you could actually use to clean it. Well, I'm on a huge cleaning kick right now, and this was the last piece of furniture in our home that needed cleaning, so I did a little research to see what would work...
Coconut oil! Y'all know I love coconut oil and use it in all of my Sugar Scrub Recipes, but I had no idea that I could use it to clean things! I mean, I know coconut oil is like nature's gold, so I thought I'd give it a shot and it was AMAZING!
You simply take a clean cloth and dip it in the coconut oil...just get some on your cloth. Kind of like you would use shoe polish.
Rub it all over your leather furniture, wiping away any dirt or grime. I chose to clean one section at a time and that worked great.
It took the dirt (and maybe a little sweat...oooh gross) off with ease. After wiping each area, I waited a few minutes, then used a clean cloth to wipe any excess coconut oil off of that area.
Matt's chair is nice and clean with no harm done to it at all, and this momma feels a little bit better about his huge leather chair. Plus...no harmful chemicals!
If you'd like to purchase your own coconut oil, you can find it HERE on Amazon (this is an affiliate link, so if you purchase it here I will receive a small commission.) or in the pharmacy section of your grocery store. I recommend using organic, unrefined coconut oil.
