I love my leather couches! And at the same time, they do require some care. Since my hubby loves to drink his wine and chill out while watching TV, there have been times when he has spilled more than a glass or two of wine on our leather recliner and sofas. I learned my lesson and am always prepared to handle this mess right away! 

As you can see below, there’s a lot of leather in my living room. Learning the correct way to clean them is essential when it comes to wine spills.

From pet scratches through to staining, there are various hazards that could result in your leather couch getting damaged.

Of course, there is an action that you can take when it comes to protecting this type of furniture. For example, if you experience spillage such as wine on your leather couch, using the right products will help to ensure that you can get it cleaned up quickly and easily without causing any damage to the leather. This can save you a lot of hassle and money in the long run and help to keep your couch looking good.

Cleaning the wine stain off your couch

If you do spill wine on your couch, you need to get it cleaned up right away so that the leather doesn’t get damaged. Fortunately, you can clean the stain up quickly and easily with the right products and tools. In order to do this without damaging the leather or creating streaks on the material, you should:

  • Blot the stain: The first thing you need to do is blot the stain and get the spillage soaked up. You can use an absorbent kitchen towel or similar to blot the excess wine from your couch
  • Create a solution: You then need to create a suitable solution to clean the stain from your settee. This is something you can do with ease as you can make a solution of mild soap and water that is lukewarm.
  • Create soap suds: In order to clean the stain, you will need to create soap suds within the solution, as this is what you will be using to apply to the stain. In order to create foam, you need to mix the solution with your hand so that there are plenty of soap suds.
  • Apply the foam from the solution: You then need to apply the foam or suds that you have created onto the stain on your couch. This can be done quickly and easily by using a sponge to apply the foam from the solution onto the stained area.
  • Rinse off with a suitable damp cloth: The last step is to rinse the area well using a suitable cloth to avoid streaking or damage to your settee. If you want to avoid damage, a suitable cloth option is a streak-free microfiber cloth, as this will ensure that you do not damage the leather surface of your couch and will also help to keep streaking at bay.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to reach for my microfiber cloth towels. They are the only solution for me when it comes to household chores and I especially appreciate how beautifully they wash so you can reuse them again and again easily. They provide the perfect combination of cleaning power, economy, and durability. These are the perfect towels for nearly all cleaning applications!
