It is best to continue as you are doing, whilst it looks nice unfortunately with a light colour and that style they will pick up and show the dirt that is in the air, therefore you should use the types of product you are.

The key is that to ensure that you wipe with something plain after too because sometimes the residue when the baby wipes dry can be a little bit sticky and this can encourage future dirt to stick to the material more quickly in future meaning that it requires almost constant cleaning.

Stop using baby wipes! These contain alcohol and will damage and remove the clear topcoat on your leather. It will then start to peel and a repair will need to be done.. You will get away with baby wipes for a while but not for long!

After trying Leather Wipes and aerosol 'Ultimate Leather Cleaner' both useless I used a tip which I found whilst browsing. Use a small amount of Dove soap (or any type of mild conditioning soap) work up to a lather on a clean cloth or flannel and wipe over sofa in circular motions, using more pressure where the sofa surface is paticularly grubby. Clean the sofa in sections, seats, arms, back and sides etc and rinse off with another clean cloth and warm water before towel drying. Your Sofa should look factory fresh.
