5 Steps to Clean a Leather Couch like The Pros
Couches get dirty and worn over the years. And it’s quite expensive to call the professional cleaners to take care of your couch and make it brand new again. If you don’t feel like investing a lot of money in professional services, you can try this step-by-step tutorial that will help you have a spotless couch. First of all, you need to clean that dirty couch. Vacuum it using low to medium suction power and make sure you won’t scratch the leather. Use a soft brush attachment on your vacuum cleaner. Make sure to check what kind of leather was used when making your leather couch. Did the furniture shop use finished or unfinished leather material? If the furniture shop doesn’t recommend any particular cleaning product, you can move on and use homemade foam from a mild soap like the one found in your hair shampoo. Apply the foam on a tiny area of your couch to test the leather and see how it reacts to the foam. If no reaction is visible you can start cleaning your leather couch with the foam using a damp cloth to wipe the entire surface. Wipe the foam out using another damp cloth. Dry the couch using dry cloths. Otherwise watermarks will form on the surface of the leather material. Use some special moisturizer to prevent the leather from forming cracks.
