I have a very old round faux leather Ottoman at home, my father bought it when I was very young, in the sixties, and it’s still with us, serving us and the wonderful thing is that it still looks amazing.
How did I achieve this?
Well, I have some secrets I’m going to share with you about maintaining your round faux leather ottoman in perfect condition.
The first thing I must tell you is that the techniques I’m going to reveal to you in this post are applicable to most faux leather Ottoman’s you will buy, whether they are new or old, and it’s also very affordable to maintain and keep them looking as new.
The first way to maintain your round faux leather ottoman looking perfect is by using baby oil.
I know that this is going to sound crazy, but it’s the truth, I use a sponge and a little unscented baby oil, then, I clean and wipe my round faux leather ottoman at least once every six months, the oil is amazing because it’s going to penetrate the faux leather fabric and it’s also going to maintain its chemical composition, in other words, your round faux leather Ottoman is not going to lose its texture and it’s going to keep its elasticity, which is extremely important to maintain it in perfect condition and in perfect shape.
The second thing I must tell you is about sunlight.
The biggest enemy of faux leather is sunlight, more precisely, UV rays, if you expose your faux leather upholstery or furniture to sun light on a regular basis, they are going to deteriorate much more quickly.
My advice is to keep your faux leather furniture, especially old ones, away from sunlight as much as possible.
The third thing you must understand is what you should not do.
If you have stained your round faux leather Ottoman, the first thing to do is to keep your calm and to avoid using one of these products: alcohol or bleach cleaners!
They are extremely dangerous for the chemical composition of faux leather and are going to cause cracking and even tears! Which is not what you are hoping to achieve!
Instead, just use warm water with a clean sponge or cloth; it’s more than enough to clean it.
These are the things you should always have in mind if you would like to maintain your round faux leather ottoman in perfect condition, and please, if you have a question or comments, feel free to post them in the comment section below, I will happily answer them as quickly as possible.
