Protecting White Leather Furniture

White leather sofas can completely transform any room, bringing it from traditional to contemporary. These types of sofas exude sophistication and can act as a focal point. While modern leather sofa comes in an array of colors, nothing says upper class like white leather. The only problem that white leather furniture faces is the ability to hide stains and damage.

Leather reacts negatively to drastic alterations in temperature so it’s critical to keep this furniture out of direct sunlight. Although durable, white leather furniture is prone to fading, peeling and cracking. Spilling beverages seems quite unavoidable so if you find yourself in this dilemma, clean the stain with a small amount of water immediately! If you use too much water, blot the area with a cloth and then air dry. You can always speed up the process with a blow dryer.

Gentle disposable wipes work wonders on your white leather couch and you should always vacuum! Never scrub stains because you can wrinkle the couch which leads to sagging. Clean your leather couch on a weekly basis and use a leather conditioner. Since these conditioners are potent, use these every 6-12 months.

While plastic covers may help to avoid stains on the couch, it can cause moisture which leads to mildew growth.  However, if you notice mildew is already on your couch, consider using a gentle soap.
