Leather -- a material made from the hide of animals -- is durable and typically easy to clean. Urine -- from both humans and pets -- can create stains and odor on your leather furniture. If the urine is removed immediately with a damp cloth, no odors or stains should develop. If the urine dries on the leather furniture, the risk of stains and odors increases.
