How to Care for Bonded Leather Furniture?

Wipe Bonded Leather Furniture

1. Give Your Furniture a Weekly Wipe Down

Make a habit of weekly cleaning your bonded leather furniture. Take a soft, dry cloth and gently wipe your furniture to remove all the dust from the surface and crevices. As dust is made up of small, sharp particles, its accumulation can lead to the dullness of bonded leather furniture by scratching. By wiping your leather and removing the dust on a weekly basis you will be saving your leather from scratches and dullness. 

2. Clean Leather Furniture Regularly with a Leather Cleaner

Apart from mere wiping, you can also make a habit of cleaning your bonded leather furniture with a reputable leather cleaner. In order to clean your leather with a leather cleaner, first do a patch test to see if there is any adverse reaction. If there isn’t any, you are good to go. Apply a small amount of cleaner on a wet dry cloth and gently wipe the surface of the leather. Make sure to get into every crease and crevice of leather. This will remove any remaining dust or grime on the leather. 

3. Regularly Condition Your Leather

If you want to keep your leather furniture supple and smooth for a long time, make conditioning a habit. Every 6 to 12 months, make sure to apply a robust leather conditioner, like Whites Pearl Leather Conditioner on your furniture. Before applying any new product to your leather, make sure to do a patch test. Leather conditioners like Whites Pearl Leather Conditioner are designed to penetrate deep into the layers and pores of leather, restoring the moisture of leather, and making it supple and smooth. Moreover, Whites Peral Leather Conditioner also possesses leather repellent and sunproofing properties that help protect leather furniture from the elements of the atmosphere.

When using Whites Pearl Leather Conditioner, apply a small amount of conditioner on a soft, lint-free cloth. Massage the conditioner gently, in a circular motion on the surface of the leather. Once the leather is covered in an even coat of conditioner, allow it to dry for 2 to 24 hours. When conditioning make sure to pay extra attention to the areas that see the most wear. 

4. Treat Spills Promptly 

In case a spill occurs, make sure to quickly blot it with a cloth. Blot until there is no liquid left. Make sure not to scrub as that will only make the spill spread and soak in the leather. In case the spill leaves a stain, use a non-toxic leather cleaner, and gently remove the stain using it without any rubbing. 

5. Keep Your Bonded Leather Furniture Warranty Safe 

After buying leather furniture, make sure to keep its warranty on hand. Keep in mind that good manufacturers will give out warranties as factory defects are common and can happen. Moreover, the product can also have some inherent weaknesses. When a damage happens, you can refer to your manufacturer with the warranty and they will sort out the issue for you.
