Cleaning Leather Made Easy
Leather furniture is the key feature of modern décor. Not only is it chic but classy as well. Other items like leather bags and purses help you make very effective style statements. But if you put their aesthetic benefits aside, then they are a real pain to maintain. The slightest misstep could ruin the entire thing.
Here are a few easy tips you can apply to clean your leather objects in the most efficient way without destroying them all together.
· Tips for Leather Bags/Purses
If you are thinking about buying leather purses or bags, then be warned that they stain and spot very easily. They come across as dirty after just a very short time. When that does happen, many people turn to the regular dish washing or laundry detergent to tackle the problem. This is a terrible idea because this seriously messes with the quality of the leather. You might as well throw out the purse because it won’t look nearly as good as it did when you bought it. Here is what you should do:
Use a facial soap if you can or a very, very mild detergent for clothing. Mix one large tablespoon of that with one large glass of water. Make sure that they water is clean. Pour the solution in a spray bottle and shake is well. Spray the solution on a clean piece of cloth. You will be using the cloth to clean the purse. Using of a lot of liquid could damage the bag beyond repair. Wipe the bag gently and leave it out to dry on its own. When it dries, use a little moisturizer and spread it on the bag. This will keep it smooth and new like.
· Tips for Leather Furniture
Unlike the leather purse or the bag, you don’t have the option of using the leather furniture only sometimes and then putting it away. The more it is used, the more regularly it will need to be cleaned to maintain its current state. Here is what you should do to clean the leather furniture:
Vacuum the furniture thoroughly. Use a mild detergent or saddle soap for the actual cleaning. But remember to make sure that it contains oils and waxes, as they will help make the leather shine. Use a clean cloth with the detergent or the saddle soap to gently wipe the furniture. Never use an old towel for this task. The cloth needs to be just as delicate, so micro fiber will suffice. You can apply a single spray of water with the detergent or the saddle soap. Leather reacts negatively to oversaturation. After that, wipe the residual soap with another clean cloth. Leave the furniture to dry naturally. Don’t use strong artificial lights and never put it out in the sun. If you are not sure about the strength of the detergent then you can always spot check. But make sure to pick an area that will not be visible to others easily.
