Leather Chair / April 25, 2018 / Ruby Barlow
It is never stressful to maintain leather because cleaning is very easy. Liquid spills are removed by wiping with a slightly wet cloth. Stains can be readily spotted and effortlessly washed with just soap and water. The use of costly chemical solutions for cleaning must be avoided because it will damage the natural luster of the material. There are leather covers available for purchase and used to wrap the chair to shield it from spills and stains. Although covers can be an added expense, they work to protect the leather from being damaged by scratches and unwanted marks.
For non-finished leather chairs, use an art-gum eraser and erase the dirt from the chair. This is essentially the only way to clean this type of chair. You might have to clean the entire chair this way. For water-resistant chairs, use the eraser to clean up minor dirt spots. Wash water-proof chairs with mild soap such as Ivory. Use a bucket of room temperature water and rub the soap together with your hands in it. Make sure it is not hot or cold; it must be room temperature or the soap will not clean properly.
