DIY Leather Cleaning Tips

We often think that cleaning up your leather furniture requires the use of crazy weird chemicals. Sometimes you even go out of your way to hire a professional to help you care for your most expensive seat in the house. It is important to avoid detergents that use any kind of dye or bleach, which can be harsh, abrasive, causing your leather to dry out and shrink. The following are easy DIY methods that will drain your worries away and turn your cranked up leather seat into an almost new sheen.

Use baby wipes

Baby wipes are not only an invention for your baby’s smooth skin. It is also recommended for your natural leather furniture as it is gentle. When cleaning a dirty spot, take the baby wipe and rub the spot. Keep rubbing it until the dark spot is all out. In the end, it will look as good as new and bring back a uniform colour.

Use Subtle/ Bar Soap

Bar soaps are one of the key ingredient of cleaning leather. All you need to do is rub the subtle soap on a wet piece of cloth and wipe your leather furniture.

Plain White Vinegar and tea-tree oils for foul smell

What people don’t’ realize with leather furniture is that it begins to smell bad after a period of time. To get rid of the foul smell, a bottle top of plain white vinegar and ten drops of tea-tree oil is the best solution. Use a cloth to dampen the solution on your leather seat and it will automatically be fresh and clean.

Vacuuming

The simplest way to prolong the life of your leather seat is by vacuuming it regularly. It is best while getting rid of hidden dirt like food cramps within the joints of your furniture.

Getting rid of ball point ink

Stains can be tougher to remove on leather than on fabric, so be sure to keep pens away and blot spills as soon as they happen. When the accident occurs, reach out for your daily personal products: your shaving cream or hairspray. Try them out on an inconspicuous area first to check out the result and then on the visible part of your leather seat. However, if you leave ball point ink alone on leather, it will fade with time.

Wiping Grease

Grease is one of the most dreaded stains of all time. When you find one on your leather seat, take some corn-starch and sprinkle it on the grease stain. Leave it for about half an hour and just wipe it away. The sooner you do this, the better.

With these easy tips, your leather furniture will stick around for decades!
