Although many of the posts in this website deal with the subject of cleaning and maintaining faux leather objects, especially when it comes to keeping them looking great, I need to tell you that most of the advice you are going to find are related to specific items, a definite furniture piece or type of fabric, that’s why you should not use every technique you will read on the internet in order to clean your faux leather chair with ottoman, things can be a little different, depending on the fabric, texture, color, and also age etc.
And today, I would like to share with you some specific techniques to clean your faux leather chair with ottoman, and although these techniques may sound very easy and not very effective, let me tell you that they will give you so many amazing results that will be noticeable almost immediately.
The first thing you need to do when you are dealing with a faux leather chair with ottoman is to keep it away from humidity and moisture as much as possible.
This is the mistake I see most people doing:
They will put their faux leather chairs or ottoman bench near a source of humidity, sometimes; they will even put a vase which may contain a large amount of water on top of them!
I don’t recommend this because water is the number one enemy of faux leather fabrics; it’s going to decrease its strength while also increasing the chances of staining them and even damaging them forever.
The second mistake I see people doing is exposing their faux leather chairs with ottoman to a heat source.
For example, a chimney or a radiator, it’s very damaging because the heat is going to melt some of the faux leather fabric which is going to make your faux leather chair with ottoman look terrible and ugly!
Let’s talk now about how to clean them properly.
Well, I can give you so many advice and tips to do so, but personally, the most important and the easiest ones I’ve found are the following:
Take some few drops of baby oil, apply onto the top of your fingers, and start swiping very gently, of course, after getting rid of as much dust with a dry cloth as possible.
The second technique I use all the time is warm water.
Although warm water is going to scare most of you when it comes to faux leather items, it’s very effective, just apply some few drops and wipe very gently with a dry cloth.
Be careful, don’t use very hot water, it’s extremely damaging.
