Sofas, chairs or seats “dressed” in leather or substitutes should be cleaned at least twice a year in order to keep their original color and to remove any hard–to-remove stain. And for that, you definitely need my super effective advice. Wink, wink!
Cold water and liquid soap
Use a simple mix of cold water and liquid hand soap and wipe off greasy stains. It’s important to use a lint-free and white cloth. After cleaning the leather upholstery, wipe the excess water with another soft and dry cloth. It’s recommended doing this every week when you clean the house.
Lanolin hand cream
If the upholstery is made of natural leather, you can use commercially available lanolin hand cream. The leather upholstery should be kept as elastic as possible to last longer and to keep its original color. Lanolin cream will do both jobs.
For vinyl upholstery or other leather substitutes you can use cleansing milk. Apply some cleansing milk solution on a clean cloth and wipe the leather upholstery everywhere, insisting on the most used sitting areas. Cleansing milk will clean the dust, water stains or sweat and will maintain the fabric over time.
