A stain on your white eco-leather? It is easy to panic. That is why we are giving you our little everyday tips for cleaning and maintaining your materials gently and without abrasive products.
Caring for eco-leather
If you have an eco-leather chair, it is important to maintain its firmness and shine. This coating does not require the same care as leather. That is why we give you some tips to treat it properly and remove any stains or marks.
First, it is important to dust the surface to be cleaned. Use your vacuum cleaner or a cloth to prep the co-leather for cleaning.
Clean imitation leather and make it shine.
The use of a cleansing milk is very effective to act in depth without attacking the material. Soak in a cotton ball or cotton swab to apply it directly to the desired area. This trick will allow the milk to adhere well to the grain of the leather for gentle and effective cleaning. It is possible to replace the milk with clay stone by gently rubbing in a circular fashion and for several minutes. For a resistant stain, do not hesitate to add a few drops of white vinegar to the cleansing milk.
Remove a grease, ink or pen stain from the eco-leather
Remove the stain as quickly as possible with a cloth soaked in soapy water and a few drops of white vinegar. Once done, wipe everything with a clean, dry cloth. If the stain persists, there is another possibility. The trick is in your cupboards, the breadcrumbs! Roll it on the grease stain to make it disappear. The starch in the crumb will react and quickly absorb the fat. Once done, reuse the cleaning technique with milk and white vinegar above. This trick works very well in the case of an armchair or an eco-leather bed.
Gestures to ban:
– Scratching the imitation leather would be the first reaction to a stain, but it is not the right one. The material would tend to crumble and can be damaged.
– Never use corrosive products such as bleach, for example.
The reaction of an eco-leather to these techniques depends of course on the quality of the material and its color. Please note, that a corrosive product can discolor the surface to be cleaned.

Remove from pen on peachskin
To maintain peachskin appearance and its vibrant color, the coated fabric should be cleaned periodically. It has the ability to bead the different liquids which could cause a stain. Provided you clean up a spill or mess quickly, you can prevent a permanent stain from forming.
Only a mild soapy solution can remove a stain from the surface of your coated fabric sofa, armchair or chair. Lacquers and any other detergents that are too aggressive are to be banned. They could cause damage or even the decoration of the coating.
