If you’ve wanted to have a particular pair of shoes for a long time I recommend not cleaning them with water. This is because leather items like shoes, bags, or even gloves require special care. If you try to clean leather furniture with water, it will cause streaks and eventually crack.
Protect your sofa by cleaning it with a special kind of product, not with water and soap. Remember that to keep a leather sofa in optimal condition, a protective cover is required!
