You only need a small amount of Murphy Oil Soap

In order to clean and condition your leather couch with Murphy Oil Soap, you first need to give it a quick dust.

What more could you want? However, you should be aware that too much of this product may end up marking your sofa with streaks or causing residue buildup, so it's best to keep your use to a minimum.  

While Murphy Oil Soap has a variety of different uses, such as cleaning wood furniture, the reason it works so well as both a cleaner and conditioner is because it helps to add moisture and shine, just as a conditioner would. Now, you can rest easy knowing you always have a way to treat your leather couch, or any other leather products you have around the house.
