One of the added advantages of choosing leather over other headboard materials is the easy maintenance that you have to do. With wood you need to polish it regularly, watch out for chips and cracks and sometimes even re-varnish after long periods. Leather headboards are so much easier. You need to dust the headboard at least once a week, ensure it is Scotch-guarded and wipe it clean if there are any spills. The material doesn’t chip or crack, so you are guaranteed to enjoy your new headboard for years to come.
Cleaning your tufted headboard mainly depends on the material used. If you have a leather tufted headboard, you first need to determine the finish of the leather before proceeding with cleaning. If you have finished leather, you need to put a small amount of moisturizing soap on a damp cloth. Bring this to lather before rubbing on to the leather without using too much water. Wipe away the lather with a fresh damp cloth and then polish with a dry towel. Treat the leather with conditioner. If your leather is unfinished, you will need to use damp cloth or sponge to rub saddle soap onto the leather. Wipe away the lather and allow to air dry. Oil the leather with preservative to keep the quality of the leather. If you use fabric like canvas, there are a lot of spray-on cleaners available in the market. Otherwise, an option would be to use a dry cleaning agent and brush. On top of that, a vacuum will be handy to take out all dusts and cleaning residues.
