Natural leather requires an extra degree of attention and care.
Normal cleaning
Moisten a cotton or woollen cloth with water and wipe over the leather surfaces.
More stubborn dirt
More stubborn dirt can be removed using a mild soap solution (pure liquid soap: two tablespoons dissolved in one litre of water).
It is very important not to let the water soak through the leather or penetrate into the seams.
Then wipe off with a soft, dry cloth.
Removal of stains
Remove fresh water-based stains such as coffee, tea, juices, blood etc. with an absorbent cloth or kitchen roll, dried-on stains with the cleaning agent from the care set.
Remove fresh fat-based stains on the surface such as butter, mayonnaise, chocolate, etc. with an absorbent cloth or kitchen roll or with the cleaning agent from the care set.
Treat fat-based, dried-in stains with grease-dissolving spray.
Treat less common stains such as ball-pen and other inks, felt-tip pens, nail polish, dispersion paint, shoe cream etc. with a special leather stain remover.
Leather care products
The leather should be treated regularly (about twice a year) with a special leather-care product.
Apply the cream very sparingly.
Then wipe off with a soft, dry cloth.
