The Pantry Ingredient That Can Remove Stains From Leather Couches
If you enjoy eating on your leather sofa but are terrified of accidental spillages, consider keeping cornstarch handy for quick and effective cleaning.
Renowned for its absorbent nature, cornstarch can effectively banish grease marks on leather. But before applying cornstarch, blot the stain gently with a clean microfiber cloth.
It’s also crucial to check the manufacturer’s instructions and conduct a spot test before sprinkling cornstarch. Once done, cover the stain with a generous amount of cornstarch.
Then, leave it undisturbed for a couple of hours or overnight. Next, simply use a clean microfiber cloth or a gentle brush to wipe the powder away from the stain.
If the stain persists, reapply cornstarch and rub it with your fingers to generate heat. Once stain-free, apply a leather conditioner to restore the leather’s moisture.
