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.
Leather headboards are considered as a luxury choice. They may never be worn but they requires maintenance on a regular basis to keep their shape. When you bring a brand new leather headboard home, you must treat it with special mild water cleaner. Besides, you still need to treat them with soap at a same time. And the wood headboard is a certainly life-saver when it comes to maintenance. All you need to do is wipe it with damp cloth.
