Now, we all know that nothing lasts forever, but we sure can try, can’t we? We can have a little hope that the brand new leather furniture set we just brought home can, well, last a lifetime. Leather is certainly known for its longevity, but also its easy care, and its comfort. So let’s talk about a few ways in which we can help leather last as long as we’d like for it to!
Properly Condition Leather
Condition leather furniture every six to twelve months. Definitely make sure you’re using the correct product, as leather is a sensitive material and not all pieces of furniture require the same cleaner or conditioner. There should be a tag on your furniture that informs you of what to use!
Clean with the Right Tools
In addition to your vacuum cleaner’s handy upholstery attachment, you’ll want to use a soft, dry cloth to clean your leather furniture. Avoid harsh tools like bristle brushes.
Blot Spills - Don’t Wipe Them
This is a lesser known fact! Wiping up a spill or stain may cause the moisture to spread, and we want to absorb it! So blot each spill carefully; you can try this on other materials like carpet and fabric, too.
Vacuum Nooks and Crannies
You can easily use an upholstery attachment to vacuum dust, dirt, and debris from the corners of your furniture. As for the surface of your furniture, use a damp, soft cloth to wipe off dirt and other everyday messes!
