    Yeah, it's a bit much to vacuum the buttons every few days unless you have a cat. That sheds buckets. And I'm a bit obsessive compulsive about cleanliness. What kind of leather conditioner do u use? I have lexol but haven't tried it on the chair yet.

    SG: is it easy to replace the buttons on a leather couch? i've got one that's popped a couple. tried to figure it out, but looked like maybe it needed a special button hook or something.

    It's probably something you could take to an upholstery place. Cheap fix, I'm sure.

    Not my field of expertise, but I believe a button hook is req.

    Bp: leather masters leather protection cream. It is worth finding out if the leather tannery has a special rec. for creams/polishes. Imo, Don't use lexol.

    Its just a long needle. The thread passes through from the back and gets tensioned to give the desired effect. As to leather care then leatherique car car products are the best. Used on all good leather seats from Bentley to Ferrari

    I think I'll give that a shot, it sounds like it works well for leather that sees a lot of sunlight.

    Care to elaborate? I've only ever used Lexol on boots and shoes, but I'd be curious to know why you dislike it for furniture.

    I decided to use Leather Masters because most of the car detailing forums that I researched this on seemed to also have preference for LM over lexol and many had the same thing to say about lexol as my own thoughts...which is that I was unimpressed because it didnt seem to have done anything at all. The LM works well for me, I'm tempted to try a few other higher end products out of curiosity more than anything else.

    Also, I've noticed that lexol seems to need a great deal of time to dry.

    This thread has confirmed my suspicions about Ed and Reevolving. They are both the same moron. And now he has this sock puppet account which pretends to be female. He created a female sock puppet account on Facebook so that he could troll for pictures of naked boys wearing pressure cooking backpacks.

    Women do not post on StyleForum. No sane woman would ask a bunch of aimless men about how to vacuum a chair.

    Now, kindly click on this link: . For cheap kitchens.

    Haha. More conspiracies, I see. I'm real, I'm a girl and I had never even heard of Reevolving until a few weeks ago when he first posted on here. Do I need to take a picture of myself holding a sign that says "Hayward is a flipping retard"? Then will u believe me? I have suspicions that some of the conspiracy theorists on this thread either have schizophrenia or are meth heads.
