How to Clean leather with simple Homemade Cleaner?

There are many different types of leather and they all require different types of care. I like to use a homemade cleaner that’s non-toxic and safe for anyone in my family to use. It’s easy to make, affordable and it works!

Leather is a natural material, so it will age with use. If you want to keep your leather furniture looking shiny and new, you’ll need to clean it regularly

Here are some steps to clean your leather Furniture.

Now that you’ve got the right tools and supplies, here’s how to clean leather using our DIY cleaner:

  • With a clean soft cloth, apply the homemade leather cleaner to one section of your leather. Let it sit for a few minutes (the time will vary depending on the brand). Repeat this process until all surfaces have been completely covered.
  • Allow the product to dry before applying any type of conditioner. If you use too much or don’t let it dry properly, your conditioning could be ineffective or even damaged by excess moisture from the cleaning step above.

Uses of White Vinegar for Cleaning

White vinegar can clean leather as well. It’s easy to find and cheap, so there’s no need to buy a special cleaner for your leather items. White vinegar is also environmentally friendly and safe for most types of leather.

If you have white vinegar in your home, it’s worth giving this method a try before resorting to stronger chemicals that may damage your item or irritate the skin. To make a basic cleaning solution using white vinegar:

1 – Fill a spray bottle with white vinegar and water at a ratio of 1 part water to 1 part white vinegar (a 4-ounce bottle will use about 2 tablespoons each). You can experiment with different ratios depending on how dirty the item is; for example, if there are stains on the surface of your bag then you might want to use more water than vinegar. You don’t need much liquid because both components are concentrated enough by themselves!

Olive Oil for leather cleaning

To clean leather with olive oil, you’ll need:

  • A clean cloth
  • Olive oil (a small amount will do)
  • Dampen the cloth with olive oil. We’re not looking for a soaking wet or dripping cloth here; just make sure it’s dampened enough so that when you rub the leather, some of that moisture will transfer over. If you want to be extra careful with this step, run your hands along the surface of your leather first and see if there are any particularly dry spots that could use more moisture—and if so, use more olive oil on those parts specifically.
  • Rub the olive oil into your leather item. Use circular motions as well as long strokes to work in all of that good-for-your-leather goodness! If you don’t have time or energy to do this process thoroughly right now, save up those product reviews until later in life when they’ll actually help people decide what to buy rather than wasting everyone’s time trying to convince them they need something they don’t really need at all (like we’ve done).

Rubbing Alcohol cleaning stains from leather

Rubbing alcohol is a disinfectant. It kills many germs, including the ones that attack leather. If you want to clean leather, rubbing alcohol is a good choice.

Rubbing alcohol can also be used as a preservative for leather. It helps protect your shoes from cracking and drying out over time so they last longer than normal shoes would.

Finally, rubbing alcohol makes an excellent conditioner for leather because it softens the material and gives it an attractive shine without making them too slippery or shiny like some other products do when applied directly on top of each other (such as using water).


If your leather is looking a little worn out, you can use this homemade leather cleaner to restore it back to its former glory. This recipe is perfect for furniture, bags and shoes that have been stained and damaged over time. Leather has many benefits including durability, comfort and style so it’s important that you take good care of it!
