SOURCE: How can I maintain a leather sofa bed?

Leather stand up to tear and wear very well. In order to properly maintain your bed, you'll need to remove the dust with a slightly damp cloth. Moreover, you should keep the bed at least 30 cm away from direct heat source to fervent it from drying out.

SOURCE: How do I clean a Greece stain on a leather sofa?

Assemble your ingredients. If you've just spilled some butter or your boots or gotten bacon grease on the couch, it's best to leap into action right away. If you catch it quick enough, all you need to clean your leather item is:

  • A microfiber cloth
  • Talcum powder
Dab as much of the grease as possible with the cloth. Gently blot at the grease stain, trying to absorb as much of it as possible as quickly as possible. The trouble with cleaning leather is that it tends to absorb liquid, especially grease, making it difficult to clean topically once it's been absorbed.
  • Avoid scrubbing the leather. This can damage the fine grains of the leather, making the stain worse. Blot gently and use some kind of lint-free microfiber cloth.
Find the grain of the leather. Just like wood, leather has a direction of texture. You'll have more success in applying any cleaner if you apply it along the lie, as opposed to across it. In other words, any time you wipe or blot at the leather, you want to do it with the grain.
  • If you're having trouble finding the grain, try and work from the "outside" of the stain in to the center. At the very least, you'll be able to shrink the stain this way.[1]
Spread talcum powder on the item. Use regular household baby powder to soak up the grease. Be liberal with your application of the powder. It works particularly well at drawing the grease out without damaging the leather because it's more absorbent than the leather is, as long as you get there in time.
  • Let the powder sit overnight, or at least several hours to do its work.
Gently brush the talcum powder off the item. Using a cloth, gently brush off the talcum powder. Be careful not to scrub the powder back into the leather, working the grease back out.

How to get pen off fake leather

Fake leather AKA Bonded leather markings is a fixable problem. First assumption is that the pen markations did not etch or scratch the leather. Leather color spray is available from the Mohawk Co for a variety of common leather colors. The goal is to mask the ink in this case. Should the leather be etched or scratched, there are flexible filling adhesives that fill marks in leathers and are heat cured. Following the fixing of a scratch the mark is then colored to match the furniture piece.

Removing ink from leather sofa

What ever you do... first put the same ink on a hidden peace of the fabric (in the back or under the sofa) than you can try all sorts of GRANDMA's magic potions... start with basics (soap and water) than move on to stronger stuff (rubing alchool, lighter flued, paint thiner, etc...) you could even try PEPSI they say it has good STRIPPING capability LOL! and if you finally get the ink off. wait for a week to see the reaction on the the fabric "on the long term"... (to minimise long term reaction you can neutralize the solution after the ink is cleaned out with something els) note what ever you used and find a neutralizing agent... after a week of testing, if results are satisfying than clean the actual spot... (if you'r a kid and don't want momy to know than you'r in trouble LOL)

Good luck!
