Leather With Oil-and-Wax Finished Wood
General Upholstery Care
Furniture with a combination of leather and oil-and-wax finished wood requires periodic conditioning to keep the wood and leather moisturized.
To maintain the wood, we recommend treating it as needed with Howard Products Feed-N-Wax Wood Polish or Osmo Wood Wax Finish, following the manufacturer’s instructions when applying. Take care to avoid getting the product on the leather, as it can leave a permanent mark.
To maintain the leather, use a leather conditioner when the leather feels dry. Take care to avoid getting leather conditioner on the oiled-and-waxed wood, as it can darken the wood.
Do not use water to remove oil-based stains on leather. Blot with a dry, clean, white cloth. The spot will dissipate into the leather over time.
For water-based spills on leather, use distilled water and a clean white cloth. You may also use leather cleaning products. Test in an inconspicuous area first.
Leather will naturally stretch with use, adding to its comfort and character.
For routine cleaning, dust the leather and wood with a clean, dry cloth.
To prevent fading, avoid placing your furniture in direct sunlight.
