There is nothing more luxurious, elegant, and classy to look at than a leather lounge. If you take good care of it, it can last a lifetime. It will be the middle of entertaining your guests, being the comfort zone through your movie marathons, and it will even offer you the place to crash after the movie night. Now, as for taking care of it, leather needs a bit of tender love and care for it to last long. Here are a few ideas that can help keep that leather lounge of yours in great shape.

The Right Way Of Cleaning The Leather Furniture:

Begin With Soap and Water

Mild stains on your beloved leather lounges? There’s nothing that a bit of soap and water can fix! Dip a clean cloth in the lukewarm soapy water and then use that for wiping the stain. A bit of search will also let you find soaps that are to be used explicitly for leather lounges. But dark stains, such as those from the ink of a pen, are a different story. You only have to dip a swab of cotton in alcohol and apply it on that stain directly, and that will do the job.

Dry It Out Thoroughly and Apply The Cream

Make sure that the leather is dried out carefully, with another dry, clean cloth to stop the formation of any mildew. To get the best results, you should leave the spot alone overnight. The material needs to get re-moisturized with leather cream and a clean cloth. Let the cream soak in and then buff it to get back that beautiful shine of the leather.

Taking It To The Professionals

If all these methods do not work, then it’s time to make it to the professionals. Bring to leather care experts or even a shoe repair shop for help. It is not a good idea to bring the garment to the local cleaner, regardless of how much they advertise about leather care and suede. The chance of damage is just too high, and once damaged your good leather lounge can never get back to its previous condition.

Avoiding The Distressed Spots and Cracks On Leather Lounges

Distressed spots and cracks on the leather lounges look so bad and are not something that you would want your guests to see. So, what is the way out for that? For starters, do not let your furry friends get on the lounge and use it as scratching post. Use the leather creams to keep material moisturized, smooth and soft. It is best to put the lounge away from the air conditioner, roaring fires, or even radiators because all the heat tends to take away the moisture from leather and turn it dry and full of cracks.

As important as it is to take care of a leather lounge, it is equally significant that you get a right quality product, to begin with. Because at the end of the day, regardless of how much you care for it, a poor quality leather lounge will not even see through a month!
