When looking for a cleaning product for your leather dining chairs, always ask yourself ‘would I put it on my skin / body’? If not, chances are it’s too harsh to use on the leather. Don’t be tempted to use an abrasive cloth or sponge; stick to using soft cloths, applying a gentle amount of pressure in a circular motion. Scrubbing will just crack the leather rather than help to remove the mark. If you are ever unsure about the cloth you are using or about the cleaning product, it’s alway a good idea to test it on a small area of the leather that is plain out of sight, before going ahead and cleaning the whole thing.
Be careful of colour transfers from brand new clothing, such as denim and from clothing that uses darker dyes as this can potentially mark the leather. We recommend doing a regular very mild clean with some warm water and washing up liquid, as this stops the marks from general wear and tear building up over time and making the surface look grubby. If you'd like to know more, we’ve written a post offering loads of tips on cleaning and maintaining leather, which can be found on our lifestyle blog.
