To clean a faux leather sofa is very easy, after all, faux leather is made out of petroleum derivatives, plastic and other chemicals, and this means that they are not going to retain stains permanently and they are not going to penetrate deep into the fabric and damage it, and this is also one of the main reasons why people prefer to buy faux leather sofas instead of real leather ones, they are much more easier to maintain, clean and keep in perfect condition.
Then, how to clean a faux leather sofa?
It’s not that difficult, you just need to know what kind of stain you are dealing with.
If you are dealing with liquid stains, you need to know whether it’s damaging or not!
Damaging liquids are those strong liquids that contain either alcohol, aggressive chemical products, like beach, or even liquids with artificial colors.
These stains should be dealt with as quickly as possible, because if they are left for long time on your faux leather sofa, they are going to penetrate your faux leather fabric deeply and they may even cause irreparable damages to its chemical structure, in other words, you can never get rid of them.
The first thing to do when you are dealing with such stains is to take a dry piece of cloth, or even better, a dry sponge, and get rid of as much as possible, then, apply just some few drops of warm water and wipe gently.
When you are done, why not use some few drops of leather conditioner on the affected area, it will give your faux leather sofa a nice shine and a great look again.
And in fact, if you own many faux leather items and upholstery, I highly recommend that you invest in a good faux leather conditioner, especially ones that contain honey, they are the best and they do not cost a lot, less than thirty dollars, and they will last you for ages.
