HAND SANITIZER AND LEATHER FURNITURE DON'T MIX!
Today, we're going to talk about how to avoid color loss on your leather. There are many products that pose a potential danger to your leather furniture. Generally, any product containing alcohol or acetone (found in nail polish remover) should be kept far away from your leather since they are solvents. One example of this is hand sanitizer. The best comparison is using nail polish remover to remove nail color. The sanitizer removes the color from your leather furniture. Unfortunately, the only solution is to have the area redyed by a professional. Usually the results are quite good. Another tip: if you have pets and use a flea product like Advantage, be sure the product is COMPLETELY DRY before allowing pets near your furniture. When the product is wet, it can pull the color from your leather furniture.
