How-To: Get Oil Out Of Leather


So I love dry oil spray, I do…but I do not love it when I forget that our beautiful leather chair is now sitting in our bedroom to make room for the tree, and accidentally give it a coating of (beautifully scented) spots.


Totally get-outable.

And it’s easier than you think.

All you do: pour a ton of talcum powder onto the area (no sprinkling; pile that stuff right on) and let it sit. Allow your husband to be utterly perplexed when he spots the disaster scene upon his arrival home and wonders aloud whether you’ve developed a raging drug problem or taken to baking cakes in the bedroom. And then, after a few hours have gone by (those of you with fewer curious dogs than I should leave it there overnight), wipe the powder off with a dry cloth.

That’s it.

Ta da!

(The chair looks like it’s a completely different color in each shot because it’s next to a window and the pictures were taken at different times of the day. But you get the idea.)
