Use a dry microfiber cloth or the brush attachment on your vacuum cleaner to dust your leather seating weekly. Leather furniture and dust don't mix, so don't miss a week.
Instead of wiping up spills, try a more gentle blotting technique. Use a clean white cloth to sop up spills on your leather furniture, but make sure it's done quickly. Rubbing spills into the leather can let the leather absorb more of the liquid than simple blotting.
The best bet for removing stains on leather is a white cloth lightly wet with lukewarm water. Never hasten the drying process with a fan or hair dryer. Just allow the leather to air dry.
- Resistant Stains
For resistant stains like ink, sometimes the best bet is to contact a professional. Often the treatments to try to remove ink can damage the leather even further.
- Commercial Leather Cleaner
There is a time and place for a professional cleaning, either by a company or by the owner using a professional leather cleaning. Depending on how much use your leather furniture gets, this professional cleaning may need to happen every 4-6 months.
