Giving your office furniture a spring cleaning each year is a good idea. Below we've highlighted a few ways you can do that with some of the most popular furniture materials—laminate, leather, and vinyl.

Cleaning Laminate Furniture

If you need to clean laminate furniture, you can follow these 3 steps:

  1. Dust: Use an oil-free furniture spray or a clean damp cloth.

  2. Hand wash: Using basic soap and warm water can get your furniture clean. You'll also want to dry it with a paper towel or cloth to avoid soap residue.

  3. Remove stains: Get rid of pesky stains by using a simple home remedy of hot water and baking soda. Mix it into a paste and gently rub in the solution with a toothbrush until the stain is removed. Don't forget to rinse!

Cleaning Leather Furniture

Leather furniture wears down its shine after a while. A great way to bring some life back into your leather furniture is to clean your leather furniture with some home remedies and elbow grease.

Below are some methods you can use to clean your leather furniture:

  • Leather cleaner: Using leather cleaner is pretty straightforward. All you need is a little cleaner and a cloth to get the job done.

  • Vinegar and linseed oil: Applying a mix of 1 part vinegar and 2 parts linseed oil with a cloth is a great home remedy to clean your leather furniture.

  • Rubbing alcohol and water: Mixing equal parts alcohol and water and rubbing it in with a cloth is another reliable way to clean your leather furniture. If you use this option, consider using a leather conditioner afterward, as it can dry out your leather.

  • Cuticle remover: One way to remove pen marks and stains from your leather furniture is to use cuticle remover. Simply dab the cuticle remover on the stain, then rub away with a cloth. Repeat as needed.

Cleaning Vinyl Furniture

The steps to clean vinyl furniture are roughly the same as the steps for cleaning leather furniture.

  • Baking soda and water: Sprinkle baking soda on a damp cloth and rub it into your furniture. Use another damp cloth to rinse. If you need to remove a stain, mix the baking soda and water into a paste, then scrub with a brush and rinse.

  • Vinegar, warm water, and Murphy Oil Soap: Use half a cup of warm water, half a cup of vinegar, and 2 teaspoons of Murphy Oil Soap, then wipe with a damp cloth.
