Conditioning Leather

One of the steps often left out after cleaning your leather furniture, shoes, car seats and trim, handbags, purses, and saddles is conditioning the leather.  After I cleaned my leather furniture (see Cleaning Leather), I let it air dry for 24 hours and then I used the Nova Leather Conditioner (click link to purchase) to finish making it beautiful. 

It comes with its own foam applicator sponge and it’s easy to apply.  Just add a small amount of the leather conditioner to the sponge and massage into the leather.  The conditioner is slightly oily, so you want to make sure that you don’t leave it too damp.  With a just a little bit of effort, it can be completely absorbed.  Let it sit untouched for at least an hour and then wipe the area with a fresh, dry cloth.

What I ended up with was beautiful furniture that looked as-good-as-new.

There was an odor when cleaning and conditioning the leather, which I finally realized was a leather-type scent meant to help restore the smell to you leather.  Because our furniture didn’t smell like what you’d think of as a traditional leather smell, it just didn’t dawn on me.  But, it did make it smell good after application.

When you are conditioning leather with this product, you are using a product that is made in the USA and contains no harsh detergents or toxic ingredients.  Its pH balanced formula is safe for all your leather, vinyl, and plastic care.

  1. SO glad I came across this! I have leather couches and chairs in our living room. I use conditioning wipes right now and feel they don’t work well. I may just have to try this!

    Thank you for linking up at the TGIF HOP!
