Saturate a cloth with it, and try your best to rub the spot out of the leather’s surface. However, when it comes to oil stains, the best solution is a good, consistent prevention regimen. You should make sure to thoroughly clean your leather furniture up to five times a year, and to apply a trusted protection cream. Such a cream will fill in any gaps or cracks in the leather’s surface, and prevent any dirt or oil from soaking in. Mending Holes and Tears If your leather furniture sofa has a tear or puncture in it, your best bet is to run to a hardware store and purchase a leather repair kit, or to consult a leather repair professional.
A kit will contain the tools and instructions necessary to remedy any small harm or damage done to your furniture. Again, your degree of success depends on the extent of the damage. If the tear looks too severe to repair by yourself, do not by shy calling a leather restoration or repair company — they will know what is best for your furniture. The harm to your furniture may not be severe enough to warrant paying for professional help, such as in the cases above.
