Need to know how to clean and condition leather furniture? Leather furniture is expensive, so it is important to clean and condition your leather furniture on a regular basis. If you want your leather furniture to look great for a long time, then proper conditioning and cleaning is required.
To clean and condition leather furniture, you will need:
- A microfiber cloth

- Dust your leather furniture weekly with a dry microfiber cloth. You can also use the dust brush tool attachment on your vacuum if you need to. Turn and fluff the cushions also to reduce wrinkles. This should help maintain the appearance of your leather furniture.
- Blot spills immediately with a soft, dry white cloth. If a stain needs to be removed, dampen the cloth with warm water. Do not rub and allow the leather to air dry. Never use soaps, detergents, dusting sprays or furniture polish, for these will damage leather furniture.
- Clean your leather furniture with a commercial leather cleaner at least once every three months. The commercial leather cleaner should come with proper instructions to follow.

This will result in a serious stain, and you may need to call a professional cleaner.
