Leather is a durable material used to cover furniture, footwear, vehicle upholstery, in the manufacture of clothing, among others. Leather is a very elegant material, but it is also one of the most difficult to clean.
To remove stains, we should not apply abrasive products that damage the leather as they remove the protective layer and shine. Therefore, you should carefully consider the best cleaning method.

Leather is sensitive to grease, so it must be cleaned urgently as it will damage it forever. There are several suitable chemicals on the market, although there are household methods that also work.
