Leather Care

How do I care for my leather furniture?

With minimal care, your leather furniture can last decades. A monthly wiping with a warm and damp clean cloth will prevent your body oils and dust from creating a build up. As easy as it sounds, this maintenance is key to prolonging the life of your leather furniture. 

What about stubborn spots and stains?

Use a mild solution of liquid ivory soap and clear lukewarm water. apply the soap to a Clean wet sponge and wash, then rinse well, towel dry. Always try the cleaning method in a hidden area first to convince yourself of the results.

And for butter, oil, and grease?

Wipe excess butter, oil or grease off the leather with a clean, dry cloth, then leave it alone as the spot should dissipate into the leather in a short period of time. Do not apply water to try to wash a butter, oil or grease spot.


Saddle soaps, oils, abrasive cleaners, soaps, furniture polish, varnish or ammonia based products. The leather has already been permanently preserved in the tanning process and needs no maintenance other than the simple cleaning recommended.
