You can’t get quality, comfort, and maintenance ease from any other sofa material except leather. It is very durable, requires less maintenance time, and is much easier to clean up. This is one of the reasons why a lot of homeowners consider a leather sectional sofa to be a good home furniture investment. Whether it is a leather sectional sofa, ottoman, or an armchair, the leather material is simply straightforward to maintain.

Now, we all know that accidents happen and stains are somewhat inevitable. So, how do you go about getting your leather sectional sofa squeaky clean after suffering several blemishes?

1. Vacuum and Wipe – The twin action

For starters, it is advised that you take immediate action once your leather surface becomes stained. The longer it stays stained, the harder it is to get clean. So, one of the first things to do is to either vacuum, wipe, or do both actions successively. Before you use a damp cloth on the stain, try to get it off with a dry piece of microfiber cloth or a vacuum cleaner.

2. Vinegar & Olive Oil mixture

You want deep cleaning? Try this amazing mixture! It is not only time saving, it is also quite pocket saving. Mix both liquid at an equal proportion into a small container and apply using a spray bottle. Ensure that the mixture is well integrated and no element is standing out. Shake the bottle vigorously till you get a smooth mixture.

The vinegar sucks up the stain while the olive oil leaves a shiny touch on your leather surface. Talk about being compatible!

3. Baking Soda and Cornstarch – Another home-based magic

Got some oil stains? Or, have you been trying to get one out for a while now? Try this!

NO! Don’t use water. The only thing that water will do is drive the stain further in. But baking soda can work great magic when it comes to oily and greasy stain removal. However, this might not come in handy for a long-time stain. For that, you might have to call the professionals.

Other low budget stain removal technique involves the use of alcohol and nail polish removal.
