How to Clean Leather Goods
When cleaning leather, always test a small, hidden area first. Never use saddle soap, oils, hairdryers, abrasive cleaners, furniture polish, varnish or ammonia to clean Tiffany leather accessories.
To remove stains, oil-based spots and spills, follow the instructions below:
- To remove stains, use a mild solution of one-part soap to 10 parts water. Apply gently with a wet white cloth and then fully rinse. Let air dry.
- To remove oil-based spots, use a dry white cloth to blot the area. The spot should quickly dissipate. Do not apply water to the spot.
- To remove other spots and spills, immediately blot the area with a clean, absorbent white cloth or sponge. If the stain persists, use plain lukewarm water to carefully clean the spot. Blot with a clean towel, then air dry.
- To clean patent leather or canvas, use a damp white cloth and a small amount of mild soap.
