    Default Leather indentations - advice please

    Hi All, please take a look at the pic and see where the headrest and seat had been touching for some time whilst in storage, it has left indentations on the seats. Will these come out in the fullness of time? has anyone any suggestions what can be done to remove them? any advice would be helpful guys. Cheers

    I did read somewhere that if you but towels into almost boiling water, wring out most of it (without burning hands) then lay over the marks it can help. Don't know how much truth is in it though.

    Having said that, a couple of marks in mine are now alot less visible since we have had the warmer weather so it might work

    Maybe a damp cloth put on the "offending area" then a warm iron gently rubbed over it ?.
    This might help.

    I think most leather wipes tighten up the leather so may be worth a go.

    We used to use Lord Sheraton ones on our settee and it tightened the base of it. At only a few quid from ASDA / Tesco it might be worth a go?

    Use some form of leather conditioner, as it should make it more supple.
