Care Guide - Leather Upholstery
Placement of Furniture
- Avoid placing in direct sunlight or next to strong heat sources as this can cause the leather to discolour or dry.
- As leather is naturally absorbent do not use washing up liquid, detergents or bleach to remove stains as these will spoil the leather.
- Similarly, do not use abrasive cleaning products as these could damage the leather and surrounding wood surfaces.
- Before using specialist upholstery cleaning products, read the manufacturer’s care instructions and test on a hidden area of fabric.
- Remove any dust with a clean, soft, white cloth, slightly dampened with pre-boiled water cooled to room temperature. Avoid soaking any areas. Always keep a cloth specifically for leather furniture and keep away from soaps and detergents as these may damage the leather.
- Vacuum weekly at a low setting to remove dust and dirt, especially from under the cushions. Use a soft brush attachment to avoid damaging the leather.
- Do not use spray polish or any detergents as these may damage the finish.
- For small marks, carefully dab with a clean, lint-free cloth, and vacuum using the small brush attachment.
- For more pronounced marks, please refer to a professional leather cleaner.
Emergency Cleaning/Stain Removal
- Liquid spills can be blotted with a dry cloth or kitchen paper. Be careful not to rub the area as this could damage the finish and cause discolouration.
