While rubbing alcohol is a smart way to disinfect surfaces, it's one thing you should never use on porous materials like wood and leather. The rubbing alcohol can easily dissolve coatings and finishes on the leather and wood surfaces of furniture, which can lead to deterioration. In fact, rubbing alcohol is so powerful, using too much on leather can "burn" a hole through it. Use all-purpose cleansers or formulas meant for these surfaces to keep these furniture items clean.
