Leather Cleaning and Care

Leather is a natural product, whose value and uniqueness can be preserved with an appropriate treatment and care for a long time.

Cleaning

Remove dust regularly with a soft, dry cloth. Microfiber wipes should not be used as they degrease the surface. Coarse-grained dirt can be removed best with a soft brush or a vacuum cleaner with a suitable brush attachment. Minor staining can be cleaned best with mild soapy water. Make sure that the leather is not too damped.

Quarterly or in case of heavily soiled leather surfaces please use a leather cleaning agent from a specialist shop. Never apply the cleaner directly onto the leather and test the product always first on a concealed area. First carefully remove coarse-grained dirt to the middle of the stain. Then apply the cleaner all over the area without excessive rubbing. Possibly repeat this step. Then wipe with a damp cloth and distilled water and let it dry (avoid direct sunlight). In case of heavy staining, which cannot be removed with a leather cleaning agent, please contact the next specialist company.

Cleaners with chloride, solvents, polishing or chemical cleaning agents etc. might harm the leather and shall thus not be used.

Please note: Vegetable tanned leather may not be treated with water or a cleaning agent, as otherwise the surface can be damaged.

Care

After each cleaning the leather requires care and protection again. As soon as the leather is completely dry after cleaning, apply a care product especially developed for leather in light circling motions with a soft cloth. Detailed information about the application of the care product can be found in the respective product description.
