Leather disaster

Postby des » Thu Feb 02, 2017 4:02 pm

I treated myself to a new dressing gown for Christmas, knowing we were to be away for some time shortly after. After just over a week in the RV I discovered, to my dismay, that the colour (mainly blue) had bled into our cream leather upholstery. I tried some leather wipes we had, which worked a bit. Then some hand wipes which also worked a bit. I tried turning the settee cushions (the worst stained) over, only to discover the other side was worse! Don't remember that happening. In desperation, it being the back, I tried some Cif. To my astonishment the blue virtually wiped off. I had to wait for a new bottle to finish the job, which leaves the leather an almost perfect match. Phew!
