Whether you have kids, pets, or just accident prone adults wreaking havoc on your beautiful leather furniture, there is hope for keeping it looking excellent. All you need to cover up hideous scratches in your leather is a bit of extra virgin olive oil. Take a look at these before and after shots from Mash-Up Chic:

Here’s how Tricia achieved these results:

I used a soft cloth to rub the olive oil into the leather in circles. I think the key is really rubbing it in. I followed up with a paper towel and buffed it off a bit. I was a bit worried about oil residue on the leather, but the paper towel buffing revealed there was no oil left on surface of leather. A few weeks later it still looks awesome. There are a few deeper marks that are still somewhat visible, but it looks tons better than it did. The oil also brought back the rich tone of the leather a bit.
