In this post, we are going to talk about the best ways to take care of your faux leather couch, and although the subject may seem very easy to understand, I would like you to pay close attention because some of the techniques I’m going to share with you are a bit risky!
Don’t worry, nothing scary, but I just would like you to pay close attention because these techniques are truly impressive when it comes to getting rid of peels, cracks, and even extremely difficult things on your faux leather couch.
Let’s first talk about how to clean your faux leather couch the right way.
Of course, there is a right way to clean your couch, and there is also a wrong way!
What is the wrong way?
In my opinion, anything other than the right way is a wrong way! I know that what I’m saying here is confusing, but it’s the truth, if you apply anything else to clean your faux leather couch rather than the techniques I’m going to share with you, you are doing things the wrong way and you are certainly hurting the faux leather fabrics in them.
Then, was the right way?
It’s quite simple, whenever you have a stain, always start with warm water, apply some few drops and wipe gently with a dry sponge, then, apply a dry cloth to get rid of excess moisture.
When you are done, use some saddle soap and wipe gently again, this will give your faux leather couch an amazing look and lifespan as well.
There is also a better way, and it consists of using a faux leather cleaner, such a product is designed to clean and get rid of stains on your faux leather fabrics very easily and it’s the one I use in my shop, although the first technique is very efficient as well.
The next technique I’m going to talk about is how to get rid of peels on your faux leather couch.
Although they can be rare, peels are going to start appearing on your faux leather couch when you don’t take good care of it for a long time, and to remedy this situation, there is a very easy solution; however, it’s a bit risky!
Risky in the sense that if you use it too often, you will make your fabric very loose and fragile!
However, if you apply it using the technique I’m going to share with you, it’s going to become very easy and safe as well.
Take a thick towel, or three sheets of paper, put on top of your peel, and then apply your iron on medium heat, don’t do this technique often, only when you have very difficult peels, it will soften the fabric a little and get rid of the peels very easily.
How to prevent peels and cracks in the first place?
It’s quite easy, and as you are going to find it in most of my posts, this is the advice I always give:
Every three months, use a good leather conditioner, wipe gently, and let it breathe for at least twenty-four hours; this means no one will sit on your faux leather couch until it’s completely dry.
These are the best techniques in order to take good care of your faux leather couch, if you have a question or a comment, I highly recommend that you post it in the section below; I’m going to answer it very quickly.
