Leather care and maintenance

Gelderland leather is extremely soft, supple, durable, and resistant. To keep it that way, it’s important to properly take care of your leather.

To maintain the quality of your Gelderland leather furniture, please follow the cleaning procedures outlined here.

Normal Cleaning
Vacuum or dust frequently with a clean, dry cloth.
If leather is soiled, it can be wiped with a soft, damp cloth using
a lather of any mild soap with lukewarm water.
Do not spot clean leather; clean the entire surface.
Wipe clean with a damp cloth and dry with a clean, soft cloth.

Spots and Spills
Wipe excess liquid immediately with a clean cloth or sponge; let the leather air dry.
If further cleaning is necessary, sponge the entire surface—seat, back, or chair arm—with lukewarm water.
Let the leather air dry; never use a hair dryer or other heat source to dry leather.

Stubborn Spots and Stains
Apply a mild, nonabrasive soap solution with a clean, wet sponge.
Rinse well and let air dry.

Butter, Oil, or Grease
Wipe the leather with a clean, dry cloth and let the remainder of the oil dissipate into the leather.
Do not apply water or try to wash a grease spot.
Do not use saddle soap, cleaning solvents, oils, furniture polishes, varnishes, abrasive cleaners, detergents, or ammonia on leather; they will ruin the finish, causing it to become sticky and cracked.
If the stain remains, contact a professional cleaner.

Large Areas
If large areas are soiled, contact a professional cleaning firm.

There are several maintenance products available. Gelderland advises LCK's products. On the LCK website you can find all the advice and related products under the logo of Gelderland.

Imperfect Beauty

With top-quality leather, perfection is not flawless. Gelderland leather, like all premium leathers, has some subtle markings caused by the healed nicks and cuts that occur during the life of the animal. These natural markings give each Gelderland leather furniture product unique beauty and character. The natural markings do not affect durability. Gelderland has strict standards for what markings are acceptable. Different levels of markings are allowed based on how visible the leather is on the product.
