What is the best way to care for a Second Hand Leather Sofa...

  1. Clean it regularly: Use a soft, damp cloth to wipe down your leather sofa regularly to remove dust and debris. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials that can damage the leather.

  2. Use a leather conditioner: Leather can dry out over time, causing it to crack and become stiff. Using a leather conditioner can help to keep it supple and prevent it from drying out. Apply the conditioner with a soft cloth and allow it to absorb into the leather before wiping away any excess.

  3. Protect it from direct sunlight: Direct sunlight can cause leather to fade and dry out. To protect your leather sofa, avoid placing it in direct sunlight and consider using window treatments to reduce UV exposure.

  4. Address spills immediately: If a spill occurs, use a clean, damp cloth to blot up the liquid immediately. Avoid rubbing the spill, as this can cause it to spread and damage the leather.

  5. Avoid heat sources: Keep your leather sofa away from heat sources such as radiators and fireplaces, which can cause it to dry out and crack.

  6. Use a soft-bristled brush: For more thorough cleaning, use a soft-bristled brush to gently scrub the leather. Be careful not to scratch the leather, and avoid using too much pressure.

By following these care tips, you can keep your leather sofa looking great for years to come.

These tips are based on semi aniline sofas, corrected grain sofas but not aniline sofas as they require totally different care and protection - please see one of our other blogs
