The 90s were the era of leather furniture. During that time, leather couches were popular in both homes and offices. The trend even reached Pakistan during that decade. Additionally, leather isn’t considered to be a good option for warm climates, which is what most of the country experiences.
People were particularly interested in leather furniture in Pakistan because of its durability, ease of cleaning, and variety of colors that can transform a room quickly. Despite the popularity of leather furniture today, and the trend of fabric and food in furniture, here we look at the various methods of cleaning leather furniture. You can maintain the luster and shine of your leather furniture for years to come by following these tips and tricks.
How to Clean Leather Furniture In Pakistan?
Regularly cleaning your furniture is a good idea. By doing so, infection-causing bacteria can be removed from all surfaces, while at the same time, your leather won’t fade or require more thorough cleaning in the future. The following tricks should be incorporated into your daily or weekly cleaning routine.
You can clean your leather furniture in numerous ways. These are some of the best methods:
Start Simple with Cloth & Water
The easy-to-clean nature of leather furniture means that a bowl of clean water and washcloth can easily get rid of stains and dirt. To avoid discoloration, do not use anything like a hairdryer to dry the surface. Let the furniture air dry naturally.
Most stains can be cleaned with water and a washcloth, but some are too stubborn to be cleaned this way. As a result, there are some other simple home remedies that you can easily try.
Removing Stubborn Stains
There are many colors available for leather furniture in Pakistan. If you have stubborn stains, do not try cleaning solvents, furniture polish, oils, varnishes, or abrasive cleaners. Not yet, at least.
The first step to dealing with a spilled beverage or food spot is to try and absorb the moisture from the surface. Paper towels or washcloths can be used for this. You should make sure that the washcloth you’re using doesn’t have any fake colors to avoid leaving any color on the surface. Use both soap and a washcloth after drying. Wet your cloth with the soap solution and then run it in circular motions over the surface. You can rub the area with another damp washcloth to remove the excess soap if the spot disappears. Let the surface dry on its own.
Adding cornstarch or baking soda to your soap solution will help remove stubborn grease stains. This procedure can be repeated if the stain has too much grease. You should allow the surface to dry for a few hours. If the stain still doesn’t come off, however, you can add a bit of alcohol to water and repeat the process.
As you clean your leather furniture, use a dry washcloth to dry it as well. Water stains may be very difficult to remove from some types of leather. In this case, you should remove the stains, use a dry cloth to wipe your leather, and then air it out.
Apply Furniture Conditioner
After a thorough cleaning, leather needs to be conditioned. After a deep cleaning, it is absolutely vital that you condition your leather furniture. You can buy leather conditioners at most home stores or online. It is also possible to use a leather cream instead of a leather conditioner. It can also be made at home with water, baby soap, and vinegar.
Two cups of warm water should be mixed with one tablespoon of baby soap and a splash of vinegar. Circularly rub the conditioner onto your leather furniture with a microfiber cloth. You should only condition and soften furniture, not dampen it. You can also use linseed oil instead of baby soap.
While it is essential to clean your furniture, there are a couple of tips that will ensure your leather furniture lasts even longer.
Keep your Furniture in Good Condition
Maintain your leather furniture by following the above-mentioned cleaning techniques and conditioning protocols. You can also condition the leather to remove scratches from its surface. You may also choose to use a chamois cloth instead of a washcloth for scratches.
