When it comes to cleaning your leather sofa, what you read on the internet is not necessarily the best way to achieve the results you want. Leather sofas gently need cleaning at least twice a year with the appropriate product, such as a care kit.
A care kit will usually consist of a leather cleaner and conditioner, along with a bottled formula. After removing any dust and crumbs from the surface of the leather, apply the bottled solution to a sponge and then gently massage the leather. This should then be followed by a damp cloth which will absorb the soiling lifted by using the solution. This should be repeated all over the item doing one panel at a time carefully rinsing out the damp cloth between panels. Once the item has been allowed to dry for a couple of hours, carefully apply the leather protection cream that usually comes with the kit to protect the surface of your sofa.
In many cases professionally cleaning the furniture prolongs the life of the leather as it is a more intense clean and conditioning process. We recommend using the care kit to keep up with the everyday wear and tear of your furniture but would recommend professional cleaning to the leather sofa every 12 to 18 months. There are many different types of leather that require different types of cleaning, so we advise you to speak to professionals and we can advise you on the best way for you to restore your leather furniture.
