These two vintage leather club chairs were one of last year’s best buys – they’re wonderfully aged and so comfortable.
We’ve been on the look out for a good conditioner to feed the leather & enhance the beautiful patina.
We were sent a bottle of Chamberlain’s Leather Milk 8oz Furniture Treatment No. 5 to try out.
It was quick and easy to use. We applied the milk with the pad provided. Let it dry for about 10 minutes – then buffed it up with a clean cloth. Our chairs soaked it up – you could almost sense the relief from the old leather! Chamberlain’s milks are all made with natural ingredients and smell very nice – like almond essence.
The results are brilliant – just what we’d hoped for. The leather has softened & looks superb – a colour like autumn conkers.
Since Fudge arrived, we’ve insisted on having leather chairs & sofa because he’s under the impression that they were installed primarily for his use. Seating of any other material wouldn’t last 2 minutes with the mud & dirt that he traipses into the house under his paws.
Up until now, the cleaning regime for Fudge’s Danish leather sofa has consisted of a quick going over with leather wipes – much like those ones you can get for babies bottoms! This piece of furniture has really benefited from the milk’s restorative magic. It gives the leather a boost without taking away any of its character.
There are 5 different recipes from which to choose, each suiting a different application. Whether it’s a quick clean & refresh for leather shoes and handbags; a deeper clean for more ingrained dirt; a protectant & water-proofer for walking boots; cleaner & conditioner for leather car seats or a cleaner & conditioner for leather sofas and armchairs. There’s a tailor-made treatment for the job. To find out which one (or combination) does what, go to the Chamberlain’s Leather Milk website. You’ll also find videos with advice & demonstrations.
Chamberlain’s is very proud of its products and you’ll find lots glowing reviews from satisfied customers online – you can add our names to the list. They’ve also been a great company to deal with – give them a try!
