How to clean and maintain your Genuine leather sofa and chair upholstery?

Genuine leather is thought of as high maintenance, but with the right approach, you can keep your piece
in great condition with little need for expensive cleaning or rejuvenation.

Follow the advice here, you can keep your Genuine leather sofa or chair looking like new for many years
to come.

1 Clean your genuine leather sofa or chair regularly

With a soft cloth, go over your upholstery to brush off any dirt or dust the surface.

Use a damp cloth to wipe the upholstery. It’s best to use distilled water if you can, as the chlorine in tap
water can damage the finish on leather over time.

Once every two to four weeks, use a specialised cleaning product to treat and cleanse your sofa’s upholstery.

2 Regularly condition your genuine leather sofa or chair

Leather contains oils that need to be replenished often. They help to keep the upholstery soft and supple to the
touch, but regular use can diminish its natural properties
, and help prevent it from drying out and cracking.

3 Position your furniture away from sunlight and heat sources

Furniture exposure to sunlight and other heat sources is one of the root causes of dryness and cracking.
Positioning your new suite in a spot away from windows that get a lot of sunlight, fireplaces, air
conditioning units or radiators can preserve the look and condition its upholstery.

4 Buff your leather sofa to preserve its natural shine

Regularly buff its upholstery with a microfibre or soft cloth, which will make sure the leather keeps
shining and doesn’t end up looking tired. Buffing is also a great way of reducing the appearance of
scratches and scuffs that your sofa will pick up with regular use.

5 How to clean up a spill on your leather sofa

The first thing you should do is to take a dry cloth or piece of kitchen roll and carefully blot the spillage
area — take great care to avoid wiping, as this can ingrain the liquid into the leather.

You can tackle more severe spillages with a specialist leather cleaner, which can often take care of the
problem without any stain forming.

6 How to tackle stains on your genuine leather

Hire a professional cleaner, as they often have effective treatments that don’t use water to tackle the stain.

Remove the excess wine by blotting it up with a clean cloth, then mix up a solution of water and mild
soap so there are plenty of suds. Use a sponge to apply just the foam to the spillage area, before dabbing
away everything with another cloth and leaving to dry.

Pls wary of clothes, throws, and cushions that are not colour-fast. Keep them well away from your new
leather settee.
