Leather Care

Leather Upholstery

  • Vacuum and dust frequently with a soft cloth
  • Do not allow body oils, perspiration or hair products to settle into the grain of the Leather as these will gradually break down the finish
  • Clean regularly with a damp cloth (not over-wet) using circular motions until the dirty parts are clean, then dry immediately with a soft cloth
  • If necessary, add a little soapy water to the above process providing NO DETERGENTS are used
  • NEVER USE SADDLE SOAP, WAX OR SPRAY POLISH WHICH MAY CAUSE IRREVERSIBLE DAMAGE
  • For rare, awkward stains a wide range of proprietary Leather Care cleaners can be obtained, following closely the manufacturers’ instructions
  • After cleaning a neutral Leather Cream may be used to restore the original sheen (proprietary products only, please)
  • Too frequent or over-enthusiastic cleaning or application of Leather Cream may wear away the upper, darker coat of Antique Leather to reveal more of the lighter base coat
  • Avoid sharp objects such as belts, buckles, studs and zips scratching the surface of the Leather
  • Protect your Leather furniture from direct sunlight
  • Avoid drying out the Leather by keeping it away from direct heat sources such as fires and radiators
