Can anyone recommend a good leather sofa cleaner brand for cleaning full leather sofa?

Follow these steps for general spills and messes.

1. Make a cleaning solution by mixing equal parts water and vinegar in a bowl.
2. Remove dust, dirt and loose particles from the surface of the leather sofa with a vacuum cleaner.
3. In case of separation, mix the solution a few times more, and dip a soft cloth into the solution.
4. Wring out the cloth so that it is damp (and not soaking), and begin wiping the dirty areas of the leather.
5. Once you have wiped down the problem spots, wipe any damp areas with a dry cloth.

As a rule of thumb, it’s always good to wipe down your couch regularly with a microfiber cloth. If you do somehow get a stain or spill something, prepare a cleaning solution with equal parts vinegar and water. Then take a microfiber cloth, dip it in the solution and wipe down the couch. When you’re done, make sure to dry the couch to prevent mildew. Then, just apply a leather cream and the couch will look as good as new!

All it works sure, thanks a lot! What do you think about slipcovers as a preventing option? We faced with this problem a lot of times, kids, cats, dogs - no one leaves here alive for leather upholstery. So isn't it better to purchase a slipcovered sofa?

Doesn’t a slipcover defeat the purpose of paying for a leather sofa entirely? It’s like buying a brand new TV and leaving the plastic on.
