How To Care For Leather Office Furniture


If you are fortunate enough to have a piece of buttery soft leather office furniture, you probably want it to last as long as possible. Many manufacturers provide specific care instructions either on a tag or in the user’s manual. However, if you can’t locate that information, here are some basic rules to follow:

  • Dust your leather furniture with a soft cloth twice a week. For non-suede surfaces, you can use a slightly damp cloth.
  • Try using a genuine rubber gum eraser (available from art supply stores) to remove dirt with a gentle rubbing motion.
  • You can use a olive oil based soap diluted in water to wipe down leather that has been pre-treated with a protective coating.
  • To increase stain resistance, you may wish to treat your leather office furniture with a protective spray.
