Help make your furniture last
Leather will last for decades with the proper care and cleaning. In addition to this guide, refer to the care instructions that are provided with your furniture.
- Under normal usage/conditions, regular dry-cloth dusting and vacuum
cleaning in crevices or along the bottom is all that is necessary to
clean your furniture.
- The use of a good leather conditioner is recommended every 6-12
- Protect your furniture from sun and direct light. Like any upholstery
material, leather can fade to some degree if exposed to the sun.
SUGGESTED METHODS OF CLEANING:
- Always try any cleaning method in a hidden area first to convince
yourself of the results.
- For minor spots and spills, wipe up any excess liquid immediately
with a clean absorbent cloth or sponge. If necessary, use a lightly
moistened soft cloth with clean lukewarm water, and let it air dry
naturally. If water is used, clean the entire area where the spot
- Do not use soap or soak the stain heavily with water. This may cause
more damage than the stain itself. If the stain persists, we
recommend that a professional leather specialist clean the leather to
avoid any potential damage to the leather itself.
- For butter, oil, or grease stains, wipe off excess with a clean dry cloth,
and then leave alone as the spot should dissipate into the leather after
a short period of time.
- For minor or slight scratches on the surface, use a chamois or clean
fingers to gently buff the scratch. If needed, moisten lightly with
distilled water to work scratches out.
- Remember that leather is a natural product and requires some care to
maintain the natural beauty of the hide.
- Do not use saddle soap, cleaning solvents, furniture polish, oils,
varnish, abrasive cleaners, detergent soaps or ammonia water.
