Natural leather requires an extra degree of attention and care.

Normal cleaning

Ц Moisten a cotton or woollen cloth with water and wipe over the leather surfaces.

More stubborn dirt

Ц More stubborn dirt can be removed using a mild soap solution (pure liquid soap: two tablespoons dissolved in one litre of water).
Ц It is very important not to let the water soak through the leather or penetrate into the seams.
Ц Then wipe off with a soft, dry cloth.

Removal of stains

Ц Remove fresh water-based stains such as coffee, tea, juices, blood etc. with an absorbent cloth or kitchen roll, dried-on stains with the cleaning agent from the care set.
Ц Remove fresh fat-based stains on the surface such as butter, mayonnaise, chocolate, etc. with an absorbent cloth or kitchen roll or with the cleaning agent from the care set.
Ц Treat fat-based, dried-in stains with grease-dissolving spray.
Ц Treat less common stains such as ball-pen and other inks, felt-tip pens, nail polish, dispersion paint, shoe cream etc. with a special leather stain remover.

Leather care products

Ц The leather should be treated regularly (about twice a year) with a special leather-care product.
Ц Apply the cream very sparingly.
Ц Then wipe off with a soft, dry cloth.
