A large number of Indian families have chosen to decorate their living rooms with leather sofas as it is a great option for a busy family with young kids. Dropped food, fur of pets etc comes off with minimum hassle from leather sofas, chairs and couches. But did you know that, to keep your leather pieces in tip-top shape, you need to do more than just brush off the messes? In actuality, you should be cleaning your leather furniture regularly; here are some hints to make it shine.
Sofa Placement – extend its life by keeping it away from direct sunlight
First consider the correct place for your sofa. Does sunlight stream right onto the cushions? Leather does not do well under the direct light and heat of the tropical sun. Hence, keeping your leather sofa out of intense sunlight can extend its life.
Consistency Is the Key
Even though you many not notice it, your leather seating should be cleaned regularly just the way you buff your shoes. Think of your best leather shoes – don’t you polish and buff them regularly? Well, your furniture deserves the same care. Just dab a bit of saddle soap (used for cleaning leather) on a soft damp cloth and buff your sofa to a nice shine. No need to rinse it off.
Remove stains and spots
If you have some annoying spots hanging around on your leather couch, there are a few options to clean it up and get it back to new. Be sure to test the leather first to ensure it will be colourfast with any solution you use by putting the treatment on a hidden section of the sofa or chair and let it sit overnight. Thankfully, getting off spots doesn’t require any major chemicals. Dip a Q-tip/ear bud or cotton ball in rubbing alcohol and rub the spot. This works especially well for ink spots if the kids were doing homework on the couch and got a little overzealous with their pens.
