We understand how much you adore that beautiful leather sofa in your drawing room. You do everything within your power to keep it clean and good as new. If this is the case, then why ruin your leather furniture by applying harsh chemicals? Chemicals like soaps and detergents deprive the leather of its natural oils, thus making it dry and discolored. Have you ever tried using some natural methods?
Let’s explore some natural methods of cleaning your leather furniture.
Before jumping straight to the cleaning part, it is better to go through the manufacturer’s instruction manual. Never make the horrendous mistake of drenching your leather in harmful chemicals. To begin with, it is better to clean the affected surface. Use a vacuum cleaner to get rid of the dirt and debris accumulated upon the damaged area.
Once the vacuuming is done, the leather sofa must be cleaned using a warm damp cloth. Make sure that the cloth you use is clean. Doing so, you will remove the loose surface dirt. Try to do it quickly for water can damage unfinished leather.
Sometimes, ink marks from ballpoint pens can appear on your leather sofa. This is where alcohol can be of help. Take some cotton or tissue paper dipped in alcohol, and try cleaning the ink marks with it. Alcohol will weaken the ink marks on your leather. To reduce the bleeding, change the cotton or tissue paper, once they are dirty. Once the stain is gone, the area must be cleaned using a clean dry cloth.
Ink isn’t the only thing that can stain your leather furniture. Food and milk spills can also stain your leather furniture, and those stains are just as difficult to get rid of. To get rid of protein stains, form a mixture of contra starch and lemon juice in the form of a thick paste. Apply this paste to the stains, and allow it the time to settle.
Your leather furniture is prone to scratches from pet claws. For such scratches, mild baby oil can prove useful. Dip a clean cotton bud in baby oil and gently massage it over the scratch. Let the oil to sit for a few minutes. Clean the access oil with a clean dry cloth or a tissue paper.
Mix two parts white vinegar with one part olive oil and mix them thoroughly. Fill them up in a spray bottle and spray over the leather. To reduce the stench of vinegar, you can add a few drops of essence.
To restore the luster of your leather furniture, and get rid of small scratches, use coconut oil. Use a clean dry cloth or a tissue paper and rub the coconut oil in. Allow it 5 to 10 minutes to completely settle in. Clean the access oil with a clean dry cloth.
The aforementioned methods will help you clean your leather furniture without harming it.
