How to properly care for a leather couch
Real or artificial leather? Often the ghosts are different. For many reasons, such as Animal justice is preferred in many areas rather artificial leather. There are a lot of vegan shops lately, where you can buy cool clothes, shoes and accessories that are 100% animal ethical.
We are completely convinced of this ethic. Nevertheless, we have to admit one thing: real leather is an essential part of the leather couch. What makes leather so special?
Contrary to popular belief, a genuine leather sofa is much more robust and easy to care for than many other variations. Properly treated, a high quality leather remains in perfect condition and becomes even more beautiful over time. Of course, you should also keep in mind a lot. We will talk about that a little later.
Timeless elegance and optimum comfort
Of course, leather type and furniture design are always a matter of taste. The main varieties of real leather, however, are two – smooth and rough leather. Smooth leather is recommended in most cases. On the one hand, this leather is very durable, on the other hand, it feels soft and supple. It is also much easier to dye and thus offers a multi-facetted color palette. Aniline, Semi-nilin and nappa leather are the most popular types of leather used in a leather couch.
The rough leather feels a little more velvety. It is not as stretchy as smooth leather. The catch here is that suede is usually much more delicate. For this reason, it is very often coated with polyurethane. This seal protects the delicate surface from moisture. The best-known rough leathers are nubuck, suede and suede.

Genuine leather is relatively easy to clean. Nevertheless, you will definitely need some useful care tips.
Care tips for leather couch
Wipe the leather once a week with a soft cotton cloth. At least once a month, you should clean the couch with a damp cloth. Be careful with the strong cleaning agents! Shoe polish, turpentine or solvents have no business on the leather. Instead of these you should use a special leather care product for cleaning.

If you notice soiling, do not scrub and scrape it off. What you can do best in such cases is to use rubber brushes or colorless erasers. If you spill any liquid on the couch, wipe it away immediately. If the leather is rough, you can even clean it with the vacuum cleaner. Greasy licking can be dabbed gently with a diluted vinegar essence and removed.
Protect your leather couch from direct light and move it away from the heater to prevent discoloration on the surface.
Valuable and noble with classic design
What should you consider when buying a leather sofa?
First, check the feel. Feel with your fingers how soft and supple the surface feels. A clear sign of good leather quality is the ability of the material to quickly adapt to body temperature.
Then do the trial sitting. Take your time. Test the ergonomics of the sofa and take different seating poses.
Now do the color test. Moisten a cloth slightly and press it for about 1 minute on the leather. If the cloth stays white after that, the couch will not color later.
So, take care of your leather couch and she will thank you with coziness, security and numerous, quiet moments.
