The most common stains to remove from leather goods are finger handling marks, but simple regular treatment will prevent them from building up into unsightly stained areas.

The kind of cleaning treatment you should use depends as always on the type of leather the object is made from.

Grain Leather

  • Regularly dust or brush with a soft brush, or wipe clean with a slightly damp cloth.
  • Treatment with proprietary cleaners or polishers should be carried out adhering strictly to the manufacturers` instructions. Never use excessive quantities - the less the better.
  • Once a year the leather should be wiped with a cloth slightly dampened with white spirit to cleanse the leather surface thoroughly from old and discoloured detritus. It should then be given a very light treatment with a proprietary polish, and finally rubbed up with a soft clean cloth.

Suede Leather

  • Brush regularly with a soft suede brush or rub gently with a plastic foam block.
  • Minor stains and marks may be removed with a hard rubber eraser, or by touching up the surface with a fine emery paper.
  • The leather should retain its colour and appearance if it is regularly treated with a fluorocarbon aerosol spray product. These make the leather water repellent, and offer protection from grease and dust.
