Most of us know that after a perfume’s scent is developed it is diluted with alcohol. But did you realize that full perfumes can contain up to 95 percent alcohol? That’s because a higher alcohol volume creates a more intense aroma. While a treat for your olfactory senses, it can be a disaster on your leather! Alcohol is a stripping agent and will pull the color out of leather, leaving the affect you see on this leather ottoman. Unnoticed, an overturned and leaking bottle of perfume remained laying here until the leather dye and protective top coat essentially turned to ‘goo’. While extreme, hopefully this accident will serve as a reminder of the potential hazards to your leather from products containing alcohol. Regardless of what you may have read or heard, it is never a good idea to try and remove stains or even clean and disinfect leather furniture with alcohol or alcohol wipes – especially when Fibrenew Upstate can take care of these needs for you!
