Top Tips To Keep Your Leather Looking Fresh Leather is one of the most popular choices for seating in the contract furniture industry because of its durability and versatility. However, like every fabric, care must be taken in order to keep it in the best condition. Here are our 3 top tips to keeping your furniture leather looking fresh. Keeping it clean Superficial dirt can be removed with a moist cloth but do not completely wet the leather or apply too much pressure. Intense rubbing should be avoided. If liquids are spilt on the leather, they can be removed by dabbing with a dry cloth. Small spots and ink stains may be removed using a colourless eraser. It is very important not to use aggressive cleaning products like stain remover, turpentine or shoe polish. Cleaning agents should be tested on a small, unobtrusive area before using on contract furniture. Always follow the advice of the cleaning product manufacturer and seek professional assistance if needed. Keep the sunlight away To avoid drying and cracking, leather furniture should not be placed in direct sunlight and should be kept at least 300mm away from heat sources. How to keep leather soft To ensure that your leather furniture remains soft, supple and retains its natural protective covering against water and grease we recommend treating it twice a year using a protective agent.
