Leather Furniture Protection
Leather can be one of the most durable furniture materials if you protect its sensitivity by following these care suggestions,
• Protection: Protect your leather from maturing just as you would your skin, since fundamentally that is what it is. Leather protection products differ depending on what type of leather you have. Most are liquid conditioners that you apply to the leather directly. Take care to protect against wear and tear by protecting the leather from natural elements, such as light. Any spills that do occur should be tended to quickly, as leather is very absorptive. Talcum powder can help soak up the spill if used immediately.
• Cleaning: There are many products specific to the type of leather you own that can be used for cleaning. Most products should be applied to either a dry or damp cloth before being worked onto the furniture. Pay attention to oilier spots that are subjected to human skin more often, and don’t worry about excess liquid since the leather should naturally repel it.
• Leather Conditioning: Leather conditioner can extend the longevity of the leather and revive faded or damaged spots. Conditioning can help reverse the dryness that may happen since it was acquired.
More than anything, make sure you recognize what type of leather you have and what type of cleaning products it requires so that you avoid doing any harm when caring for your leather.
