Leather can be in many forms. It's difficult to distinguish sometimes real from a man made product. However for real leather A coat might be called a finished leather ( shiny ) or a suede finish. If it's shiny you would wipe it down with a Damp cotton cloth. That will clean it off, no chemicals of any kind. It's the skin of a cow and will take on the odor of things that come in contact with it and smoke. Airing it out it will help but might require a good dry cleaner that specializes in leather.
If it's suede brushing it is about all you can do on your own. The lining of a coat is usually smooth satin or a polyester. That also could be wiped down with clean damp cloth also. No soap it will go thought the lining and wet the leather.

While removing spot from sofa, also removed color and now have lighter section where spot was. What leather color product should I use to match the brindle color and correct the problem?


You can use a acrylic dye from a leather store. You will need to top coat the leather again but it is available in aerosol too. You have broke the original color so dab on the color,allow dry time then 2-3 topcoats (light sprays)

First we had a musky smell almost mildew smell, now we have water at the bottom that will not drain. Tried drain and spinn and sometimes it works.


You have have some debris in the drain boot. Remove the back access panel on the washer. Look on the bottom of the tub and you will see a hose (boot) the comes off the tub going to the pump. Remove the boot and clear any debris that may be hampering the draining. Also, while you have the boot off, stick a finger up into the tub to check if there may be a small article of clothing that may be blocking the drain hole.

How do i recondition and remove the mould smell from a leather and suede coat


For leather, you will need to apply leather cleaner. It may need to polish your shoes several time, but it will work. I would recommend going to your local tack shop (horse outfitters store) and buying leather cleaner for saddles. It lathers nicely, and leaves a nice silky soft finish. It will also improve the texture and life of your shoes.
I don't know what to recommend for suede.
Hope this helps.

Your smell is inside the washer under the cabinet. You must take the cabinet apart and thoroughly clean it. You must have a small leak that has been going on for sometime now for the moister has mildewed. Lysol will kill the smell on this although it must be cleaned first of all

Kenmore washer smells/mildew on rubber


The smell problem is actually because of the softener....its nassssty stuff it coats the interior of the washer and forms a grease like residue. I would use Washer Magic (available at all appliance parts retailers) (only half the container in front loaders) and a hot wash. Also keep spraying the boot with bleach and water soluiton every few hours it will dissappear after awhile. please rate my help
