We both have a couple leather pieces in our homes and love the warmth and texture they bring to our spaces. However, leather does require some maintenance in order to keep it conditioned and looking its best.
How to Care for Leather Furniture
Here's our step-by-step process to care for our leather furniture and what you should be doing on a weekly and monthly basis.
Every week, we recommend wiping down your leather furniture with a microfiber cloth. This helps pick up all of the dust and debris on the surface and keeps your leather looking shiny!
About once a month we remove the cushions and vacuum up any debris that fall in the cracks. This should only take a few minutes!
Finally, you need to condition the leather once a month or so. This prevents the leather from getting dry and cracking. It will make the leather a little darker at first (like in the above picture), but it should dry evenly. (You may want to test it in a small area first, just to be sure!).
Take the leather conditioner ), put some on a microfiber cloth, and apply it in a circular motion all over your furniture. Be sure to do a light coat and then once it dries buff it!
You'll be left with a well-conditioned piece that will last for years and years to come (as long as you take care of it!).

Leather cleaning is very technical! General cleaning can be taken care of at home:
Here are the 4 ways to clean leather furniture:
1. To clean debris from the sofa, you can use a Vaccum Pump
2. To clean the dust of leather surface, use the feather or microfiber and clean in lightly.
3. To remove stains, wipe the leather surface with a leather cleaning solution and then let it dry.
4. Avoid using olive oil to clean the sofa instead, you can use a leather conditioner to conditioning the sofa
for more details.
However, in nasty stains, discoloration, and other grave matters, it is always advised to consult a leather care professional!
