It’s necessary to clean your leather furniture at least every few months to keep it in pristine condition.

What You Need:

  • Vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment
  • A few dry microfiber cloths
  • Vinegar
  • A large bowl or bucket

  1. Remove cushions
  2. Use the brush attachment on your vacuum cleaner to suck up any loose dust on the cushions and underneath them.
  3. Wipe the furniture down with a clean dry cloth.
  4. Mix equal parts vinegar and water in a bucket.
  5. Get only a section of the cloth wet with the vinegar mixture and blot the areas that need some love.
  6. Lastly, wipe the furniture down with a dry, soft cloth.

Pro Tip: When cleaning leather furniture, make sure that you do not saturate the leather. This can cause irreversible damage.

Removing Stains

Stain removal is a little trickier. Here’s how we suggest cleaning various types of stains on leather couches:

What You Need to Treat Grease Stains:

  • A dry, soft cloth
  • baking soda

How to Treat a Grease Stain:

  1. If the stain is fresh, you must blot the stain, do not rub it. Rubbing the stain can cause it to seep into the furniture and spread.
  2. For a dry stain, sprinkle baking soda on it. Leave for a few hours.
  3. Wipe away the baking soda in circular motions with a dry cloth rag.
