A leather curved chaise lounge is an elegant addition to a room, but the care of leather furniture can be a delicate process. While leather is a durable material, it is essential that the owner use the right products and methods to ensure the leather is not damaged during cleaning. To find the correct cleaning method to use on the leather in your chaise lounge, determine the type of leather used in the furniture. The leather can be unfinished or finished. Usually, leather furniture is covered with finishing material.
Finished materials usually contain little dye to give the leather color. Before using any cleaning solution on leather furniture, it is important to first test the cleaner on the material. A strong soap can remove the dye from the skin and change the whole appearance of the furniture. Test the soap in an area that is not visible. A mild soap is usually enough to clean a leather chair.
Stains on a leather chair can be more difficult to remove with leather cleaner. Toothpaste and hair spray are two household products that can remove stains from a finished leather chaise lounge. Apply both products directly to the stain. Spray a spray lacquer directly on the stain and wipe with a soft cloth. To remove a tough stain, some aerosols may be necessary.
