Leather -- a material made from the hide of animals -- is durable and typically easy to clean. Urine -- from both humans and pets -- can create stains and odour on your leather furniture. If the urine is removed immediately with a damp cloth, no odours or stains should develop. If the urine dries on the leather furniture, the risk of stains and odours increases.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Blot fresh urine off the leather furniture using several paper towels until no more urine can be absorbed.

  2. 2

    Dampen a lint-free cloth with cool water. Wipe the leather furniture with the cloth. Allow the leather to air dry. Continue with the remaining steps if the odour persists.

  3. 3

    Fill a small container with equal parts cool water and white vinegar. Dampen a clean, lint-free cloth in the mixture.

  4. 4

    Wipe the leather furniture with the damp cloth. Vinegar is an all-natural cleaner and deodoriser that will remove tough odours such as urine. Allow the vinegar to sit on the leather for 10 minutes.

  5. 5

    Wipe the leather clean with a damp cloth. Remove excess moisture from the leather by wiping with a towel. Allow the leather to air dry.

  6. 6

    Apply a leather cleaning and conditioner to a clean, lint-free cloth. Buff the leather furniture with the damp cloth. Allow to air dry.
