Leather office chairs allow employees to work in total comfort and sophistication. Although this type of seating is a true luxury, it isn’t the easiest to maintain. Regular cleaning is a must if you want your leather to stay looking and feeling as good as new for years to come. Here are 3 ways to clean your leather upholstery, plus some helpful tips.

1. Leather Cleaner

Many cleansers designed specifically for leather come in spray form. Be sure to do a spot test on a small, hidden area of your chair first to ensure that the leather cleaner won’t damage or discolor the surface. These leather cleaners are usually a safe bet as they’re specifically formulated to keep leather furniture looking its best.

2. Vinegar and Linseed Oil 

This home remedy involves a mixture of 1 part vinegar and 2 parts linseed oil. Apply the mixture to your leather upholstery and leave it on for a few hours. We recommend doing this before heading off to a long meeting or leaving the office for the day. After the mixture dries, buff the chair with a clean rag to create an attractive shine.

3. Rubbing Alcohol and Water 

Make a solution of 1 part rubbing alcohol and 1 part water. Once mixed, lightly rub a small amount onto your furniture with a clean rag. Consider using a leather conditioner between washes, as alcohol can dry out leather if overused.

Maintain Regularly 

Always keep leather furniture out of direct sunlight to prevent drying, fading, and cracking. If stains appear, dip a cotton ball in rubbing alcohol, dab over the affected area, and dry with a blow dryer.
