Don’t use finger nail polish remover to remove marks on leather upholstery
It’s true that finger nail polish will remove marks on leather upholstery, but it also removes the dyes that are supposed to be on the leather, leaving a bleached out spot on your leather’s surface. Finger nail polish also wears down the top coat on fully-finished leathers, leaving them more susceptible to damage.
There are a number of other home remedies and wives’ tales about using home products on leather including. We discourage the use of:
- Olive oil
- Hair spray
- Window cleaner
- Shoe polish
- Disposable cleaning supplies and wipes
