    Wow, thanks for this! My little grey foundling has done quite a number on my chair (my other 3 NEVER did this).

    Love the stories of YOUR little grey foundling – thanks for sharing them!

    What do you recommend after, when you try to sit down, but slip and slide all around instead?

    you cant wash scratches out with expensive cleaners and one should sit on the seat not the back or the arm. i would try this.. not something you would probably do more than once. looks better i think than looking at scratches.

    Hi all – I did this very reluctantly on the side then used paper towels to gauge any residual oil. There is none and we use this sofa every day. I don’t own $8000 sofas so I can’t relate to that, and wouldn’t blame you – but this kept me from ditching a sofa and keeping it usable for my family (that can’t afford a replacement $1000 sofa muchless a $8000 custom job). This trick (and my blog) is obviously for those who like good solutions on the cheap!

    I also use olive oil for scratches, but I use it on my pre-finished hardwood floors. Works like a charm.

    I did this on our custom leather sectional that has been looking very worn and weathered. It worked great and instantly. I’ve tried all kinds of expensive creams and conditioners and none have worked like good ole EVOO.

    I use leather shoe polish close to the color of the sofa on mine but I am going to certainly try this!

    I just did this and it is a miracle! Not oily, scratches are definitely less visible and hardly cost a thing! Thank you!!!!
