I’m not going to lie to you, if you don’t use the following technique I’m going to share with you in this post when nursing and cleaning your faux leather chair pads, they will start cracking and also losing all their texture and durability!
I don’t mean to scare you, but the first technique I’m going to share with you today is extremely important, especially when you are using such a sensitive and very fragile furniture item such as faux leather chair pads!
Because they are susceptible to a lot of wear and tear, it’s very important that you maintain them in good condition and also that you take good care of them using some of the techniques I’m going to share with you.
The first one is to always keep them away from heat as much as possible.
You have to understand that heat is the number one enemy when it comes to faux leather fabrics, especially when dealing with faux leather chair pads, because they are very fragile and most of the time, they are cheap, which means that they are made out of low quality faux leather fabric, they are susceptible to cracks and tears quite easily!
Personally, I don’t advise you to buy cheap pads, but if you do, you are not to blame, and the technique I’m going to share with you is also very effective and will reinforce and keep them very durable.
Just use the following product:
However, as most people don’t have quality wax in their homes, I highly recommend that you use a leather conditioner, most importantly, one which contains beeswax, it’s very efficient and also extremely protective.
Just apply some few teaspoons to a dry sponge and wipe very gently, this will keep your faux leather chair pads looking good over many years, most importantly, they will never crack or peel.
The second thing you need to do all the time is to make them dry, even if they are not soaking wet, you need to understand that by using them, sitting on them, your skin is going to impregnate them with moisture, which can be very damaging to the faux leather fabric, that’s why I highly recommend that you take and put them vertically near an open window, this will give them a fantastic opportunity to dry and lose most of their moisture, do this at least every three months.
