Art Van All-Natural, All-Purpose Cleaner?

Hi all, when I bought my sofa from Art Van I was given a Furniture Care Kit to go along with it. This includes what's labeled as "All-Natural, All-Purpose Cleaner", which claims on the bottle is "Safe for people, pets, and the environment". I am hopeful that this might be safe to use but also skeptical of this very broad claim. Problem is, I can't find anything about this specific product online. Art Van apparently went out of business in March of last year (a lot was going on then... not surprised I missed that news :shrug:) so I can't call and ask for more information. I opened it up and it doesn't have a scent to my nose, but I don't feel like that's a good enough test when my boy's safety is at stake. Does anyone know anything about this product, have any ideas of where else I can look, or have recommendations for a safe leather cleaner??

Unfortunately saying pet safe is never taken as bird safe so you would need to research the ingredients in the least & if any doubt don't use it. A weak solution of white vinegar can clean most things & when it dries leaves little odor. On my leather sofa I just use plain water & dry it with a microfiber. It seldom gets too dirty for more if dusted & cared for.
Leather can dry out so might not use the white vinegar too often as a weak acidic alcohol. If it gets really dirty just some really dilute dishwashing liquid solution & rinse it off a few times. Thats all I've ever done & my sofa is 30 years old & still in good cond.
