Lots of us have leather within our furniture at home, be it a sofa, chair or storage unit. To keep leather looking its best, and lasting a long time, it is important to care for it properly. Here are some tips for keeping your leather cared for nicely.
Regularly wipe your leather furniture down with a clean, dry cloth. This helps to keep dust from building up. Perhaps build this into your weekly cleaning routine so you do not forget! If you need to, use a little distilled water on your cloth to get really stubbon dust.
Use a vacuum cleaner to get into the nooks and crannies of your furniture. All furniture builds up dirt and debris at some point, and leather is no exception! Use a soft bristle attachment on your cleaner and gently go over the surfaces as well as in between cushions.
Clean any spills straight away with a dry cloth or sponge to soak up the worst of the mess. Wiping it will only spread the dirt further, so blotting and dabbing is the best method.
