Our Special Prescription for Various Treatments of Leather Couch Stains Removal Like a Pro: 

First you need to understand the two principal kinds of leathers , Aniline-dyed leather and pigmented leather. 

What is Aniline-Dyed Leather?

This softer and richer kind of leather can be seen as more natural in it’s appearance. It is also called the unfinished leather as the finishing topcoat is not applied to it. 

What is Pigmented Leather?

Though it is also dyed with the same bond of aniline but it is protected with pigment in it’s topcoat and for that reason it is also called pigmented leather or protected leather. It is not as soft as Aniline-dyed leather but it tends to be much more durable than the former and also there’s a plus point that it’s colors have not faded away in time.

Some manufacturers advice not to apply any method more than simple wiping out of dusts with a clean towel. On the other hand the else are advising of Cleaning it with gently rubbing by the distilled water soaked towel. In this process wiping gently in a circular motion we can remove the stain. Then the surface should be dried and if there still remains the wetness need to repeat the same process. After drying the leather , a conditioner that is prescribed by the manufacturer can be treated to the dry leather.
