How to Clean a Leather Sofa Without Damaging it
How to clean a leather sofa ? This must be the question for every luxury leather sofa owner.
Leather sofas certainly add a touch of elegance to your home decor but cleaning and maintaining these luxurious sofas, however, is a tricky task as you cannot just wipe them down with a wet cloth.
Start with Soap (liquid leather cleaners) and Water
We do not need to apply the solution in entire sofa, rather to tackle mild stains, dip a clean, damp wash cloth in light warm soapy water, and use it to rub slowly to wipe away the stains. Darker stains,like those from an ink pen, are another story. According to Laundry 360,”a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol can do the trick.” Just be careful while applying it directly on the stain spot, so the alcohol doesn’t spread the stain onto more of the leather.
Dry them Thoroughly
Be sure to carefully dry the leather with another clean and dry cloth. For best results, leave the spot alone overnight.
Apply Leather Cream or Wax
Re-moisturize the material by applying the leather cream by 3M or other renowned brands with a clean cloth. Let it sink in, then buff to a shine if you’d like.
Look out for Professionals
If this doesn’t work, call a leather sofa cleaning expert like Laundry 360 for help. Along with the above-mentioned process (steam wash) Laundry 360 use 3M Scotchgard which helps repel liquids and block stains without changing the look and feel of the fabric. Effectivity of Scotchgard can last up to 1 year.
