We have to ensure that a leather sofa staying fresh and hygienic is important, of course. As with any other living room seating it’s important to keep a leather sofa free of dust, debris and potential allergens for a healthy home and to give the material proper care.

Here is a run down of how to clean your leather sofa

Vacuum your sofa

Start cleaning a leather sofa by vacuuming it but first remove throws and pillows and check down the sides and back for any loose change, candy wrappers and so on. Use the vacuum cleaner with the brush attachment on leather to avoid scratching it. 

Slowly suck up all the crumbs and dirt that have accumulated on the surface, using a slow sweeping movement. Switch over to the crevice tool to get anything from the edges your fingers couldn’t reach, as well as cleaning the seams. Repeat on the cushions.

Wipe your sofa

Most sofas will be finished leather and it's fine to use a slightly damp cloth to give it a quick clean. However, make sure the cloth is only damp and not wet otherwise a water mark will be left.
