How to keep your Design Icons furniture looking its best
In order to keep your leather furniture from Design Icons looking its best it is a good idea to periodically clean and condition your leather by using appropriate products specifically designed for cleaning and conditioning leather furniture. These are widely available both on the high street and online.
Cleaning Aniline Leather
Aniline leathers are drum-dyed and they reveal all the natural markings and colour variations that make each hide unique. Our Aniline Leather does have a protective coating but this only provides limited protection from soil and staining.
Remove light topical soils by gently wiping with a water-dampened soft white cloth. Spills should be immediately blotted whenever they occur. Any residual stains may be gently treated using an absorbent white cloth dampened with a solution of water and mild, non-detergent soap or suitable leather cleaning product. Avoid vigorous cleaning that may lift colour from the leather. After cleaning, allow the leather to air dry away from direct heat.
Never use saddle soap, solvents, abrasives or caustic household cleaners such as soap or dish detergent. These products can be too harsh for use with leather and may cause cracking or other damage to the surface of the leather. Direct sources of heat and extended exposure to direct sunlight may also be harmful to the leather and should be avoided.
By conditioning your leather you are putting back into the leather all the natural oils and waxes that are lost over time with wear, tear and heat. If you do not do this your leather could dry out, fade and will eventually start to crack.
In order to preserve the appearance of your marble table it is important to care for and protect it by using the appropriate products for use with natural stone. We recommend periodically topping up the level of stain protection on your table by applying marble wax which can be purchased in most department stores.
Tend to all spills immediately. Care should be taken with liquids such as tea, coffee, wine and sauces. Corrosive liquids like vinegar and lemon juice can also spoil the look of your table if left on the table surface. Dust regularly with a soft, clean, lint free cloth. Clean carefully with water and a mild neutral ph cleanser (Acidity/alkalinity or even abrasives in ordinary cleansers may cause etching or scratching).
