Leather has pores and they need to be kept clean. As the first step you should take a soft cloth and wipe the dust off of your furniture. Next spray on some Basic Leather Cleaner and wipe it off with a soft cloth.
You may use Ivory soap or a moisturizing soap to get a lather then buff it off with a soft cotton cloth. Do not rinse it.
Stains, Stains Go Away
There are a couple of approaches you can take. First try rubbing some toothpaste on the surface of the leather and buff off. For stubborn stains you can use alcohol on a cotton ball. For ink you may use non-acetone nail polish remover or non oily cuticle remover. If you have a problem stain that nothing else will remove try aerosol hairspray.
