How to Care For Leather Upholstery and Furniture

How to Keep Your Leather Upholstery in Tip-Top Shape

Some people like the look of worn-in leather furniture, but I am not one of them. Soft, supple leather hits my sweet spot, and wrinkles, fading, and stains are certainly not my friends. Fortunately, your leather furniture needn't bear any signs of old age. Take my tips on caring for your leather upholstery and it'll remain as smooth as a baby's bottom!

  • Heat will dry leather out, so keep your furniture at least two feet from your radiator, vent, or other heat source.
  • Do not treat leather with any detergents, oils, soaps, polishes, or solvents. Only treat with a leather cleaner like Lexol or Leather Master.

  • Flip your toss pillows frequently to prevent wrinkles from becoming permanent!
  • Dust often. A dry microfiber cloth does a great job of reaching dust in nooks and wrinkles.
  • Keep your leather furniture out of the sun to prevent fading.
  • Keep paperwork, magazines, and newspapers off of your leather to prevent ink bleeding.
  • If you do spill liquid on your leather, use a dry cloth to blot it immediately.
