Leather is a durable material and that is why it has a higher market value compared to other materials. Unfortunately, it also gets damaged even though it last for a long time before being damaged. Water, sunlight, dust and other environmental factors expose leather to wear and tear. The good news for the leather owner is that even if the material gets damaged, it can be repaired by an expert that specialises in leather repair in Edinburgh.

* Removing stains – Sometimes the only treatment needed to repair your leather is stain removal treatment. Pets, children, sharp objects and jewellery can damage your leather furniture by scratching it. The best way to repair the furniture is to use leather honey to restore the original state of the leather by reconditioning the affected area, moistening it and camouflaging the scratches. Test the effectiveness of the leather honey by applying it to a small but hidden part of the furniture to see its effect on the furniture.

* Cleaning – Leather attracts debris and dust which make it unattractive and it leads to stains. To remove the dirt, apply leather friendly cleaning products in a circular motion. After cleaning it, wipe the leather surface with a clean lint-free cloth.
