If you have leather furniture you probably already know how difficult it can be to keep it clean and shining. While there are many leather cleaners and wipes on the market to help you, these can get pretty expensive, particularly if you have a lot of leather to clean.
To keep dust from settling on furniture, baseboards, lampshades, picture frames, etc I mix about a tablespoon of fabric softener with 2 quarts of water and dissolve it completely. Then I use a terry cloth rag and wring it out really well so it's damp. Then I wipe down anything with a hard surface including leather and wooden furniture. There's no film and the fabric softener repels dust. It's great for blinds and less costly than dryer sheets.
