Leather can also fade just like wood and because it can dry up, it stiffens and cracks when placed near the sources of heat. Therefore, try not to place it close to fireplaces or in a room where direct sunlight is present for most of the day.
Use a white, clean cloth or vacuum to remove dust after every couple of weeks to ensure that it stays clean.
Wipe the surface by using a slightly damp, soft cloth to clean accumulated dirt. To make sure the leather doesn’t absorbs it when you’re doing it for the first time, test in an inconspicuous spot. If it looks like that the leather absorb the water, use only a dry cloth.
If there’s a spill, then quickly use a dry cloth to blot and allow it air-dry. Blotting instead of wiping is important as it removes all the moisture out before it can spread in it.
Every 6-12 months, use a good leather conditioner for your DIY upholstery cleaning.
Avoid placing printed materials on it as it can absorb dyes easily. The ink from the printed materials can transfer and leave stains on the furniture.
Try your best to stay away from scratches as leather can easily get scratched. Never use any sharp tool while cleaning your leather furniture.
To clean stains, never use ammonia, detergents, harsh soap, or cleaning solvents.
Avoid soaking the stain heavily with water because it can prove to be more damaging than the stain itself.
Using a clean, dry cloth blot excessively for grease stains. After a short period of time, the spot would gradually disappear into the leather. Ask a professional leather specialist for help, if the stain persists.
