How To Clean My Brown Leather Couch
Learn how to clean your brown leather couch. It can extend the life of your furniture and make your place look halfway decent for once in your pathetic life. It's actually not that rough, you just have to know how to do it.
- Wipe down the leather every week or so with a damp cloth. This will prevent any dust from building up which can dull the appearance of your couch and can, over the long run, ruin your finish. Just go over it briefly with the damp cloth or sponge and then follow up with a dry rag to wipe up excess water. Water is a very bad stainer of leather, so it's in your best interests to keep it from staying there.
- Buff with brown leather polish if there are any scuffs or discolorations. Never use any abrasives as this will screw the leather up in the long run. A properly finished brown leather couch will block stains and will repel any liquids. However, if it gets scuffed, make sure to fill it in as soon as possible. Buff with quick circular motions. Wipe up with a dry, lint-free rag when you are done.
- Clean up spills immediately if anything happens. Prevention is better than cleaning when it comes to leather. Stains can cause weak spots in your leather which can turn into rips in the long run.
If you follow some basic rules for your brown leather couch, like no shoes, quick clean up of spills and no eating (exceptions can be made for this last one, but as a general rule, no food on leather couches), then you should be fine.
