Protected finish leathers, as the name implies, have a protective pigmented finish coat applied to their surface. This helps protect the leather from stains and improve the consistency of color from hide to hide. These leathers combine softness with ease of care, and they are ideal for young families and pets or high traffic areas. Some natural markings will still be evident. (An exception is Odyssey, our Standard Leather, which is Corrected Top Grain Leather. Corrected leather has been imprinted with an imitation leather grain to conceal its natural markings, providing a completely uniform texture and appearance).
Dust is a drying agent for leather.
Limit Direct Sunlight
Exposure to extended periods of sunlight can fade and discolor the leather.
Contain The Stain
For spills, contain as quickly as possible. For stubborn stains, clean using the Moore & Giles leather cleaner.
Conditioner is recommended every 6 – 12 months.
Under normal usage conditions regular dusting is all that is necessary to clean your chair. The use of our specially formulated Leather Conditioner is recommended every 6 – 12 months.
FOR MINOR SPOTS AND SPILLS
Wipe any excess liquid up immediately with a clean absorbent cloth or sponge. If necessary use a lightly moistened soft cloth with clean lukewarm water and let air-dry naturally. Do not dry with hair dryers, etc.
FOR STUBBORN STAINS
Use a mild non-detergent soap solution. Apply the soap to a clean wet sponge and wash, then rinse well. Let air dry naturally.
Alternatively, we recommend hiring a professional leather specialist to clean the chair and avoid any potential damage to the leather.
FOR BUTTER, OIL OR GREASE
Wipe excess butter, oil or grease off the leather with a clean dry cloth, and then leave it alone as the spot should dissipate into the leather after a short period of time. Do not apply water or try to wash a butter, oil or grease spot.
DO NOT USE
Saddle soap, cleaning solvents, furniture polish, oils, varnish, abrasive cleaners, detergent soaps, ammonia water or any non recommended leather cleaners or conditioners.
Note: These are recommended or suggested methods of cleaning. Always try any cleaning method in a hidden area to convince yourself of the results. LIFEFORM® is not responsible for damage incurred while cleaning. Like any upholstery material, all leathers can fade to some degree if exposed to the sun or direct light. Protect your furniture from the sun and direct light.
