Your leather phone cover got stained? Don’t worry! Cleaning leather is an easy task if you have an understating of the types of products to use to get the stain out. Leather goods are durable and easy on the eyes, but in addition to that, it is simple to remove stains, grease, and general build up of dirt. Because properties of leather are not same as other fabrics around your home, you are going to damage it if you wash leather with detergents. Always remember to test a small area before going in with a full cleaning routine, so that you know how the surface is going to react.
Here are a few cleaning and maintaining tips for you to follow if you want to keep your leather products shine bright and stay put!
Cleaning leather is an easy and fun task. Simply mix 1 part mild soap, like facial soap or baby soap, with 8 parts water. Ideally, you should use distilled water or bottled water for this purpose, so that you avoid hard water particles which can potentially stain your product. Pour this soapy mixture into a spray bottle and continue spraying on a microfiber cloth until it is damp. Make sure that you never spray directly onto leather product, as it can cause oversaturation in fabric. Now, gently wipe the stain by going with the direction of grain, instead of going against it. Once the stain has dissolved and the surface has dried naturally, wipe a pea sized amount of leather moisturizer to protect your product.
Caring and Maintaining
Caring and maintaining tips include using leather oil or leather moisturizer on monthly basis in order to keep your product as good as new. Also, make sure that your leather product is not in continuous exposure of sunlight, moisture, and abrasive chemicals such as bleach, as these external influences can de-pigmentize your product in patches. Make sure that you don’t keep your product folded and stored away for a long period of time, as it can cause creases which are hard to remove.
