|Care and maintenance of leather
Leather, being a natural product, needs very little or no care during normal use. Leather should be dusted regularly with a soft untreated cloth.
FOR SPOTS AND SPILLS
Wipe excess liquid up immediately with a clean absorbent cloth or sponge. If necessary, use clean warm water only, and let air dry naturally. If water is used, clean the entire area where the spot occurred. An example would be the entire seat cushion or entire arm. Do not dry wet areas with hair dryers, etc.
FOR STUBBORN SPOTS AND STAINS
Use a mild non-detergent cleaner such as a bar of Ivory soap. Apply the soap to a clean wet sponge and apply to area. Then go over with cloth dipped in clear warm water.
FOR BUTTER, MARGARINE, OIL OR GREASE
Wipe excess butter, margarine, 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 or try to wash oil, butter, margarine or grease spot.
Do not use
• saddle soap, cleaning solvents, furniture polish, oils, waxes;
• varnish, abrasive cleaners, ammonia water and the like, never soak the leather.
HOW TO AVOID DAMAGE TO THE LEATHER
Do not expose the leather to sun and strong heat. Protect the leather against scratches from cats, dogs, shoes and buckles, keys and other sharp objects. Avoid splashes in connection with window cleaning and from cleaning materials as well. Never use petrol, dilutent, turpentine and the like for cleaning. Avoid spot treatment in connection with cleaning and maintenance of the furniture; wash whole surfaces at a time.
