Most of the leather that you can purchase today comes with a protective cleaning. But if you think that the leather modular lounge you have at home is not protected, you can slightly scratch it with your finger to check whether it leaves a mark. If there is a mark, you can contact a leather cleaning expert to take care of the maintenance aspect. If you don’t see any marks, you can clean the furniture on your own. It is best to clean an area that is hidden when you clean the furniture for the first time. This way, you will be able to see how the cleaning makes an impact on the furniture and if there is a negative effect, it will not be conspicuous. If there is a spill on the furniture, make sure that you wipe off this liquid immediately with a clean and absorbent cloth. You can also use a clean sponge if you have one around. You can lightly wet a soft cloth with clean water and let the area dry on its own.

You should never use any oils, cleaning solvents, abrasive cleaners, ammonia water etc. to clean leather. If there is a stain on the leather from oil, grease or butter, you can wipe it with a clean dry cloth and let it be. The stain will disappear after some time. If you are concerned, you can sprinkle some corn starch or baking soda on the spot. You can keep it overnight on the leather and vacuum the powder up in the morning. If this doesn’t get rid of the stain, you can use a little bit of rubbing alcohol. Once the stain is removed, it is recommended to use a leather cleaner conditioner on it. If all of these recommendations don’t take care of the stain, then it is best to get a professional to look at it so that you don’t damage the leather. If there are small scratches on the material, you can buff the scratch with clean fingers.
