Leather is one of the most beautiful materials you can choose when it comes to upholstery, but it can be a very frustrating fabric when it comes to keeping it clean and in excellent condition. You could deal with the stains or problem yourself, or you could call in professional upholsterers in Glasgow. Either way, here are some tips for keeping your leather sofa looking its best for many years to come.
Keeping Your Leather Looking Great
One of the best things you can do for your leather suite is to keep it out of direct sunlight. This will prevent the leather from cracking and drying. You can also use a leather solution that will keep the leather supple.
To create a solution that will nourish your leather, mix two parts linseed oil with one part white vinegar in a spray bottle and shake. Then, spray onto a lint free cloth and work in a circular motion. This will get the solution deep into the leather and will also remove stains and dirt on the surface of your sofa. Buff with a soft cloth to bring your leather up to a good shine.
If you have stains like ink on your leather sofa, dip a cotton bud into some rubbing alcohol and rub over the spot. You can then dry the area with a hairdryer. If the stain is still there after drying you can try using some non-oily, non-gel cuticle remover. Leave this overnight and then remove with a soft cloth. If this still proves unsuccessful, get in touch with your local experts in upholstery in Glasgow. They will be able to give you the best advice and service and have your leather looking as good as new again.
Removing Dark Stains From Light Leather
It can be one of your worst nightmares if you have a light colour suite - a dark stain suddenly appears and you have no idea how to get rid of it. The good news is that you can use a paste of lemon juice and cream of tartar to remove stains. Apply for 10 minutes and then remove with a damp cloth.
