Leather, Cotton and Silk: Upholstery Cleaning Depends on the Fabric

Share :

When you go to buy a new piece of furniture, the type of upholstery you choose should be a consideration. The various fabrics used in upholstery affect the way you will clean and maintain your sofas and chairs.

Others are easy to clean, but may damage easily.

When it comes to upholstery cleaning, leather is usually the least of your troubles. Use a vacuum or a stiff brush to remove dust, dirt and crumbs from the corners of the furniture. Wipe down the surface with a damp cloth regularly. If you have a soiled area, scrub it lightly with a gentle soap. The major concern with leather cleaning is that you may dry out the leather. You can prevent the worst of this problem by using saddle soap or another leather conditioner containing beeswax.

 

  • Hardy Fabrics

Some types of upholstery are built for wear. These include cotton, nylon, polyester, wool and microfiber. Although some of these hardy fabrics may pill when you scrub them, the stains will generally come out with ease. Minimize stains by regularly cleaning the furniture. And when you spot a spill, use a gentle detergent and water solution to remove the stain.
