Leather Care

Leather care these days is easier than ever with an amazing variety of leather cleaners, leather conditioners and leather protectors available, but there is more to leather care than just using leather care products.

Here are 10 Simple Leather Care Tips To Help You Keep Your Top Coated Leather Looking Luxurious and Always Feeling Soft and Supple.

1. The first step you should take with leather furniture care is to read and follow “Manufacturer’s Care Label Instructions”

2. Wipe furniture at least once a week with a soft damp cloth to prevent dust build up and soiling.

3. Always use a good quality and specific Leather Care Product, never use saddle soaps, abrasive cleaners, furniture wax, furniture oils, ammonias or excess water for cleaning leather.

4. When spot cleaning leather always use a Neutral PH Leather Cleaner to avoid harmful reactions with the top coat, pores and stitches. This same tip applies when you’re doing a complete leather clean.

5. Always apply a good quality Leather Conditioner every 3 to 4 months to keep leather soft and supple and to prevent cracking or drying.

6. Apply a Leather Conditioner or Protection cream to help repel grime, stains, liquid spills and body oils.

7. Never place leather furniture near a direct heat source such as a radiator, heat vent or open fire place.

8. Keep furniture out of direct sunlight to prevent fading.

9. The salts and body oils, which occur naturally in human skin, can damage the surface of the leather if left uncleaned for lengthy periods of time.

In warm or humid weather it’s important that leather is wiped over as often as weekly, particularly if the leather has become damp from perspiration or deposits of body oils are visible on areas such as head rests.

Always clean along any creases that have developed in the leather and pay particular attention to areas that have come in contact with the skin such as arm covers, head rests and seat cushions.

10. Vacuum regularly with the soft brush attachment on your vacuum cleaner to remove dust and grime. Then wipe with a soft colour fast cloth dampened with straight water.

This should be done as often as possible, at least every 1-2 weeks.

Every 3 months to 4 months clean the leather with a good quality leather cleaner and follow up with a leather conditioner to keep moisture in the leather.
