How to clean a leather sofa

 

1. Not all leather is the same! Leather is unique and varied, available in many types. Before cleaning your furniture with products make sure you find out what type of leather you have and what products are suitable.

2. Routine cleaning is a good habit to keep! Prevent stains from setting and dirt being absorbed into your leather by using a specialist cleaner regularly. Avoid general purpose cleaning products as they can cause leather to become more easily damaged and less resistant to dirt.

3. A leather protector is the ideal way to stop spills and stains penetrating and damaging your furniture. As leather is exposed to skin oils, perspiration and grease, discolouration and peeling can occur. A specialist protector creates an invisible barrier to stop substances being absorbed into the surface of the leather.

4. Always test cleaning products in a hidden area first! NEVER use baby wipes on your furniture! They can alter the appearance of leather as the chemicals used break down the surface layer and make leather vulnerable to staining.

Full Finish

The leather is buffed to hide any scarring or blemishes and coated with pigments and a grain pattern. This gives it a uniform appearance and resistance to marks. Perfect for families.

Faux Leather

Created by bonding leather scraps together. Typically cheaper than alternative products it offers a similar look and feel; it's less durable than actual leather and can wear quickly.

Aniline Leather

One of the most natural looking leathers available but also one of the most vulnerable as it has no finish and is easily stained. It shows the surface grain leaving it soft and natural.

Semi-Aniline

With a thin topcoat dye, it’s more resilient than aniline against soiling and staining with minimal surface enhancement. A great combination, it retains the natural look and softness of the leather.
