Leather is a durable material that is used to make many different things, including furniture. Most types of leather are sensitive to water so there are certain cleaning tips that should be followed if you want clean leather furniture. Please refer to this post about removing water stains from furniture for a more specific guide.
The best thing to do to make sure that you have clean leather furniture is to use leather protectors that are reapplied at least once a year or as recommended by your furniture’s retailer. It is also good to keep your furniture away from direct sunlight and heat and air conditioning sources so that the leather won’t crack, dry, or fade. Spills should also be cleaned right away since they will get harder to remove when they stay longer. Furthermore, if your furniture needs repairing, make sure to repair it first before cleaning, as you may have to use a different cleaning method after repairs.
Leather furniture is the most comfortable and relaxing type of furniture known to man. The smooth finish and unique texture make it look and feel like no other. However, a good leather stain remover will eventually be required to clean this beautiful fabric. The natural oils in leather will evaporate if the chair, couch, or loveseat is not used very often. Even though the oil is natural it will need to be replenished periodically to stay soft. Just pick up some leather stain protector that also has lotion in it to keep the leather nice and fresh.
It’s important to begin by identifying what type of leather furniture you’re working with. Using the wrong type of cleaner on your leather will only make the stain worse, much worse.
