The good old adage, "an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure" is still a workable cliché when it comes to maintaining and protecting impeccably manufactured leather corner suites. Furnishings like these are quite heavy on the pocket and repairing them when they are damaged requires more than just a couple of bucks to bring it back to its pleasant condition. To avoid shelling out big cash to remedy the problem, why not simply stop the problem before it even occurs.
Companies that manufacture leather seats and sofas provide their clients either with a booklet that teaches them the proper kind of care for the sofas, or maintenance and cleaning kit that includes the most neutral and gentle cleansers and detergents as well as materials for moisturising the surface of the leather settee.
To best understand the need for adequate care and attention to leather corner suites, one should treat the leather material like it is one's own skin. Though leather is considered as the strongest upholstered material by furniture makers, there are still factors that could make it susceptible to wear and tear. Some experts would say that leathers with reputable quality are permanently preserved in the tanning process such that they do not need maintenance any more. But in practice, those leather furnishings that have been thoroughly attended to can last up to a person's lifetime. Like human skin, leathers also need to be regularly moisturised to keep it from drying and cracking and to maintain its rich sheer and shine.
There are home remedies that have been proven effective in maintaining the original gloss and shiny quality of a leather corner suite. Many leather sofa owners can testify to the effectiveness of Vaseline and shaving cream in keeping the leather surface moisturised. Simply apply these to the surface with constant strokes until the leather feels dry and then wipe off the excess grease to finish the process. One can also use pure olive oil to cover minor scratches and cracks on the outer surface of the leather corner suite. But for some old school commercial products, one can resort to using lanolin, mink oil, or milk salve mixed with glycerine to condition the leather sofas.
