How to clean a vegan leather sofa: tips and tricks

Vegan leather is an ecological and ethical alternative to traditional leather, made from synthetic materials without the use of animal products.

Although vegan leather sofas are renowned for their durability and ease of care, it's important to clean them regularly to preserve their appearance and longevity.

In this article, we'll share tips and tricks for effectively cleaning this much-used living room furniture and keeping it in perfect condition.

1. Vacuum regularly

Start by regularly vacuuming your vegan leather sofa to remove dust, crumbs and dirt particles that accumulate on the surface.

Use a suitable nozzle to reach crevices and cracks, and vacuum all areas of the sofa, including cushions and armrests.

2. Clean stains quickly

In the event of stains on your vegan leather sofa, it's important to act quickly to prevent them becoming embedded in the material.

Use a clean, damp cloth to gently dab the stain, avoiding vigorous rubbing to avoid damaging the upholstery.

If the stain persists, you can use a mild cleaner specially designed for vegan leather, following the manufacturer's instructions.

3. Use a mild cleaner


For thorough cleaning, use a mild cleaner specially formulated for vegan leather surfaces.

Apply the cleaner to a clean, damp cloth, then gently rub the sofa surface in a circular motion.

Avoid using abrasive products or solvent-based cleaners, as they may damage the vegan leather upholstery.

4. Moisturize vegan leather

Because vegan leather isn't as porous as real leather, it doesn't need to be moisturized as frequently.

However, occasional moisturizing can help maintain the material's suppleness and softness.

Use a vegan leather conditioner to nourish and protect the coating, following the manufacturer's instructions.

5. Protecting the sofa

To protect your vegan leather sofa from damage and fading, use a protective product specially designed for vegan leather surfaces.

Apply the protector to a clean, dry surface, following the manufacturer's instructions, and allow to dry completely before reusing the sofa. Using sofa throws can also be an alternative to the natural wear and tear of your vegan leather sofa, and add a decorative touch to your living room.
