Leather furniture is a classic style that has been around for ages. It can’t be explained but many people just love the look and the styles that leather furniture offers. So that is one reason you should take care of your leather furniture.
One of the oldest materials used my man is leather. Genuine leather is quite durable it doesn’t burn or melt and is really hard to rip or puncture. What makes leather classic is its look, feel and durability and the fact that it can be used in many ways, such as clothing, shoes, accessories and furniture just to name a few. Following a few steps to clean and keep your leather timeless is essential if you have leather furniture.
Though there is not much care and maintenance for leather, because of its natural strength and durability. But stains and spills are bound to happen. For simple spills just wipe away excess with a clean warm absorbent cloth and then air to dry.
For more tough stains, you should use leather cleaning products, like leather stain remover or cleaner.
It you have serious oil stains, its quite simple to clean without leaving scratches. First wipe away the stain with a dry cloth, it’s highly recommended not to use water on these kinds of stains. You should remove any liquid stains before applying any leather cleaning product.
Cleaning leather is more about what not to do, rather then how to clean it. You should never use harsh soap or cleaners on your leather. Don’t use any kind of soap on your leather. And since leather is naturally preserved it doesn’t need any brushing, or scrubbing when removing a stain. If you use any kind of oils or varnishes it makes the leather sticky.
It’s basically quite simple to clean your leather if it is a protective coating, regular dusting and removal of stains will keep your leather in good shape. It’s recommended to use a leather polish after you dust and clean.
But if there is no coating it involves a little more work. You’ll have to use a damp cloth to remove stains immediately and then go over it with a dry cloth and finally finish with a polish or protector.
Leather can complete the look of your house, so it would be good to clean and take care of your leather furniture.
