A pinner says... Instead of using extra laundry detergent to pre-treat, turn to white chalk. Simply rub onto greasy stains and the chalk powder will absorb the grease, making the stain easily removable by the laundry soap in the wash. It might sound silly, but it's worked wonders for everything from lipstick to bacon grease.
DIY Leather Cleaner & Conditioner: Simply mix up 1/4 cup olive oil, 1/2 cup white vinegar, and a couple of drops of your favorite essential oil in a clean empty spray bottle and lightly spray your leather surface. See how dry and cracked it is? *Before doing this, I recommend trying it in an inconspicuous place first...just to make sure it is safe for your leather.
