Leather is a durable material that requires little care. Its durability is one of the reasons why leather furniture is expensive to purchase. The look of your leather sofa is also of great importance, which is why your sofa must always be clean. No matter how clean you keep your leather sofa, certain accidents can blemish its look and leave it with stubborn stains.
If you want to make your leather sofa appear good as new, the following tips will help you on the way.
It is a fact that leather is a tough material, yet it is porous in nature, which makes it absorb moisture and dust. Therefore, it is very important to get rid of the dust before moving forth with the cleaning process. When dirt mixes with the cleaning liquid, it forms a mixture that absorbs deeply into the leather, thus ruining its look. As a result, it is very important to vacuum clean a leather sofa before applying any cleaners. To make things easy, attach a soft brush to your vacuum cleaner.
We have discussed in the previous paragraph, the importance of absolving your leather sofa of dust. Therefore, the leather sofa must be dusted with a soft dry cloth, to keep the dust from accumulating. For better cleansing, mix equal parts of vinegar and olive oil. Collect the mixture in a bottle, and continue to mix for their different consistencies will allow them to separate from one another. This mixture will not only cleanse your leather, but also weaken the stubborn stains, if any.
Oily stains are meant to show up, if you have a habit of eating while sitting on your leather sofa. Some people use a wet cloth, not knowing that the moisture will only allow the oily stains to worsen. This is where baking soda can be a game changer. Just sprinkle some baking soda over the oily stains, and allow it to sit there for a few hours. Baking soda absorbs the oil, thus restoring the look of your leather.
Households with small children often experience ink stains not only on their leather furniture, but basically everywhere. Alcohol and nail-polish are such ingredients that can easily get rid of ink stains. Just mix some alcohol or nail-polish with some water, and apply the mixture to the ink stains. If the stain is fresh use a dry tissue paper, to remove the fresh ink.
As far as removal of stubborn stains is concerned, a mixture of lemon juice and tartar can do the trick. Mix the two in the form of a thick paste, and apply it atop the tough stains. Allow it to stay there for a while, and after some time remove it with a wet sponge.
To keep your leather sofa clean and spotless, use the aforementioned tips promptly.
