Have you ever wondered what all the cleaning codes mean?
There are quite a few of them, and if you don't know them, do not worry.
Here are the most common cleaning codes for all upholstery fabrics along with detailed descriptions.
Clean wth a water-based product such as a little foam from mild detergent or non solvent upholstery shampoo. Use as little foam and water as possible to do the job; you don't want to get the upholstery too wet.
Clean with a mild water-free drycleaning solvent. Use just a little and make sure you have plenty of ventilation. Don't put any water on it.
Depending on the stain, you can use a drycleaning solvent, the foam of a mild detergent, or upholstery shampoo.
Hire a professional. You can, however, vacuum or brush off surface grime.

Leather is easy to care for. Just use a conditioner every 6-12 months and wipe up spills as they occur with a clean cloth. Avoid using normal cleaning supplies -- like soaps, detergents, solvents, etc.
