    Leather kit

    Bought a leather suite from DFS the other week and they tried to sell us this leather moisturising kit for so many £££s. I'm always very cautious to this type of selling so we said nah it's ok. But anyway the suite has arrived and we have thought now about this stuff they mentioned.

    so...
    1, does it need moisturising and if so how often.
    2, what stuff do you use and where can you get it from.
    3 Thanks

    They gave it to us for free. It's OK, but you can buy it elsewhere I think.

    i now always used baby wipes for a daily clean and johnsons baby soap, luke warm water and a very soft flannel for a monthly wash. I used to buy those high priced products and they never worked the same as they did on the TV .
    Our cream suite was 8 years old before we bought this new one last week and we only got the new one cos the old one has stitching coming apart round the back of it.

    I saw that although a leather cleaning kit is something totally different. OP ive always used ikea's leather cleaning kit, its only £9.99.

    i use cif

    Yes it needs conditioning you can use saddle soap to condition & clean & for were the colour has faded (obviously a long way away yet as it new lol) you can use buffalo leather restorer these are probably alot cheaper than what the sales people were selling you but just as good, the saddle soap is excellent brings it up looking & feeling like new everytime (the cheapest I got it for was on eBay £3.50)
