Now, let's dive into the steps to make your own Natural Leather Cleaner:
1. Gather Your Ingredients
First, grab a funnel and place it into a spray bottle. Add half a cup of white vinegar.
Add one-fourth a cup of coconut oil (or olive oil if that's what you have).
Don't forget to put in half a teaspoon of dish soap – no need for fancy stuff, regular old Dawn dish soap is perfect.
Lastly, add 30 drops of your preferred fragrance or essential oils. I chose to use Thieves essential oil.
2. Mix and Load Your Spray Bottle
Now that you have all your ingredients in place, attach the spray nozzle to your bottle. Give it a good shake to mix everything up, and your DIY leather cleaner is now good to go!
3. Test on a Hidden Spot
Before you dive into cleaning your entire leather couch, it's a smart move to test a small, inconspicuous spot. This step is crucial to ensure the cleaner won't have any adverse effects on your precious leather.
I tested it on the back of my cushions and let it completely dry before moving on to the full couch.
4. Start Cleaning
Once you're sure it's safe to proceed, use your trusty microfiber cloth to apply the leather cleaner evenly. Rub it in using circular motions. This technique ensures thorough and gentle cleaning.
5. Let It Dry
After the cleaning session, give your leather some time to dry.
