How to Restore Leather Top Desk

Some advice about how to clean leather top desk that is still in reasonable worn condition… The best way to begin is to wash down the top with mild soapy water. Simply use a wrung out sponge that is damp, not wet. The idea here is to remove any surface dirt and grim as a first step. There are also proprietry brands of leather cleaner available made for this same purpose. The leather is best left to dry, preferably overnight. The second step is to use a good quality bee’s wax or carnauba wax polish to feed and seal the leather. Depending upon the colour of leather it is advised to use a dark wax polish as this will stain any worn light patches in the leather. If it is a light colour leather, simply use a clear wax polish.

This will revive the leather surface and make a considerable difference to the overall appearance of the inlay. Obviously, this technique will not repair any damage such as deep scratches or tears, but it will make quite a noticeable difference.
