Leather

  • Avoid exposing leather to direct sunlight
  • Avoid placing leather furniture close to sources of heat
  • Avoid air drying of rooms in which leather furniture is placed
  • Avoid spilling liquids/oils and fats on leather furniture
  • Wipe leather furniture with a clean, dry cloth
  • Never apply chemicals, sulphonated washing and cleaning detergents or fats (leather polish/oil)
  • Maintain a regular level of moisture of the atmosphere in rooms in which leather furniture is placed.
  • Natural coloured leather is a very delicate type of leather and will absorb liquids, e.g. spilled drinks/oils and fats. Only try to remove the stains as a last resort, as the leather is easily damaged by cleaning attempts.

 

Stain removal

  • Absorb the stain with a clean, dry cloth. Never rub off the stain, but dab it up.
  • If the stain does not disappear when being sucked up with a clean, dry cloth, then try with a clean cloth wrung in boiled, cooled water or in a tepid pure soap solution (1/2 dl pure LUX soap flakes for every litre of water.)
  • The leather should, in this case, be wiped over the whole furniture surface to avoid shield edges. Leave the leather to dry completely before using again.

Freshening

  • Wipe over the whole furniture surface with a clean cloth wrung in a tepid solution of 1/2dl pure LUX soap flakes per litre of water. This will help with the removal of dust and dirt and replenish the moisture levels in the hide. Make sure that the furniture is wiped homogeneously all over the surface to avoid shield edges. Leave the leather to dry completely before using again.
