How to clean leather

Ali

Our ancestors first used leather to protect themselves from the elements. Since then, we have adapted leather’s durability and beauty to use it in apparel, furniture and fashion accessories.

Leather products are a style statement. However, as a natural material, it needs special treatment when it comes to cleaning.

 It is preferable to minimally treat your leather products and to use natural cleaners to avoid damage. Always spot test a cleaning product on a small area before using on the entire area.  You don’t want to damage your beautiful leather furniture by mistake!

Ali

Walking or cycling around London can feel like a health hazard. Roads are engulfed in dangerous levels of exhaust fumes and pollutants. How does the London Undergorund compare?

Around 4.8m daily commuters use the London Underground every day. According to the latest research published by the Financial Times levels of pollution inside the underground are extremely high. At times as much as 10 times higher than the guidelines set by WHO. The investigation was conducted at over 75 locations across the tunnel segments inside Zone 1, central London.

Pumpkin stains on floor and carpet

Carving pumpkin is not only a hard thing to do, but also a very messy one. If you decide to do everything in your kitchen, the best tip would be to lay down a newspaper under the pumpkin. This would make the cleaning much easier and less tricky. 

If you have pumpkin stains on the floor or the carpet, we have a solution. Firstly, immediately remove any pumpkin pulp that you see on the floor. You don’t want it to dry out as it would be harder to clean.
