    I wipe mine down every week with just soapy water. Then every few months DH will give it a real good clean and buff it up with the special buffer thing that came with it. The bottom of mine seems to get really dirty from my dog that's why i give it a wipe every week! x

    I had the exact same question. I do ours once a week or every 3-4 days if it's bad. I use warm soapy water. I used to use those disinfectant wipes but ran out.

    Baby wipes, and then every couple of months i get a lil scrubbing brush and some hot soapy water and give it a good clean. Its cream so gets dirty easily.

    We use baby wipes here to, but I find if you use the last few wipes it can leave your sofa a bit sticky. xx

    i use leather wipes as was told by a frend who's dad makes things from leather that the chemicals in it can weaken the leather and cause it to crease! so if i was you guys id stop using the baby wipes!
