A leather bed is definitely an investment. Once you have bought one you will want to keep it as good as new for as long as possible!.
leather is a durable material but there are a few things you can do or avoid to help keep the beauty that is your leather bed in tip top shape.
Try and get into a weekly routine of cleaning your bed, along with your other cleaning duties. The best way to clean leather is to wipe it over with a soft dry cloth. This will remove any dust or small bits of dirt that may have emerged over the week. However, if you have any spillages, for example drinks, make-up or moisturizer, then you must act immediately.
The best option is to get your hands on a white cloth or white kitchen towel and blot until it is dry. If you act quickly the leather will not have absorbed the spillage and therefore will be easy to remove.
It is important not to rub or scrub at marks or spillages on the leather as you run the risk of permanently damaging the surface of the leather. If you are faced with a stubborn mark or stain then it is advisable to seek professional help before you try and deal with it yourself. Using cleaning products is often not advisable for leather as they are too harsh for the material and can damage your bed.
Leather is very durable so will withstand a lot, but not without a few scuffs and scrapes. Studs and angular buttons on clothes can cause this scuffing which you may want to avoid. However, some like the distressed look leather has after a bit of wear and tear. So it is up to you how guarded you are of your bed!.
Pets are a big ‘no go’ with leather beds. Dogs and cats will have a field day on leather beds, so it is best to keep you pets away from the bed if you want to keep it as good as new.
So follow these simple steps and you will happily keep your leather bed maintained and as good as new. Visit www.bedstar.co.uk todayas they have some great Cheap Leather Beds of excellent quality.
