Care and Cleaning
- Dust your chair once a week with a soft, dry cloth.
- Vacuum the chair at least once a month. Use a hose attachment to clean in crevices and hard-to-reach areas.
- Contain spills quickly. Blot liquid spills with a clean towel. Buff the area dry with a separate cloth.
- Keep use of water and soaps to a minimum. Leather resists stains, so a clean, dry cloth or slightly damp cloth will take care of most spots and spills. Avoid soaps, polishes and cleaning products, especially those containing solvents. If a cleaner is absolutely necessary, choose one specifically designed for leather.
- Treat the leather a few times each year with a leather conditioner such as Leather CPR or Lexol. Some conditioners can leave a residue that attracts dust, so shop carefully and consult the chair manufacturer for recommended products, if necessary.
- Blot grease stains with a soft cloth.
- Use a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol to tackle ink stains.
- For dark stains on light-colored leather, mix equal parts lemon juice and tartar sauce. Apply the solution directly to the stains with a damp cloth. Wipe away the residue and pat the area dry.
