Leather is a timely material that stays for years to come. Unlike polyester, cotton, or suede, this material can retain its shape with lasting comfort and durability until it is cared for and conditioned. Just like skin, leather has certain dos and don'ts that can harm its surface and cause color fading or surface erosion. You need to understand what kind of leather you have and how to place it in optimal conditions to maintain its durability.
Some ways to clean leather furniture include:
1- Rubbing Alcohol
2- Leather Wipes
3- Vinegar and Baking Soda solutions
4- Corn Starch, etc.
These have no side effects and can give your furniture a store-bought look you need!
The best way to remove stains is by using certain household products that are readily available. You can use a mix of these depending on the kind and age of leather you have. Before trying any of these methods, do a patch test that will tell you what the final product will look like.
Routine cleaning of leather furniture is important. You need to schedule a day where a simple dusting of the leather furniture and wiping of the surface with leather polish or creme can do the job. There are also leather cleaning wipes that are just as easy to use. Take a wipe and you will get a shiny leather surface that seems brand new. Avoid overusing any harsh chemicals or bleach without a patch test. Overusing these products will wear the surface off, so it’s best to use household products with a mild yet lasting effect.
If you are experiencing a lot of wearing and tearing of your furniture, that is because the leather surface is drying out, which quickly causes the leather to flake. In such cases, a professional can guide you on what cleaning procedure can work best.
Some tips work best for shiny and dust-free leather furniture for optimal cleaning.
