How to Preserve and Care for Leather
Leather can be one of the most durable furniture materials if you protect its sensitivity by following these care points,
• Protection: Protect your leather from aging just as you would your skin, since essentially that is what it is. Leather protection products differ depending on what kind of leather you have. Most are liquid conditioners that you apply to the leather directly. Take care to reduce wear and tear by protecting the leather from natural elements, such as sunlight. Any spills that do occur should be tended to promptly, as leather is very absorptive. Talcum powder can help soak up the spill if put on immediately.
• Cleaning: There are many products targeted to the type of leather you own that can be used for cleaning. Most treatments should be applied to either a dry or damp cloth before being worked onto the furniture. Pay attention to oilier spots that are come in contact with 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 replenish faded or damaged spots. Conditioning can help reverse the dryness that may develop since it was purchased.
More than anything, make sure you know what type of leather you have and what type of cleaning products it must have so that you avoid doing any damage when caring for your leather.
