Fur & Leather Cleaning Instructions

Spot Cleaning

FUR

  • cleaning with soap and warm water works for small stains and smells
  • spot clean using a moist soft cloth and cleaning solution
  • start by cleaning on the outside area and work into the center in a circular motion
  • use a dry cloth to apply pressure and remove excess moisture
  • use wire brush to bring fur back to its original state

NOTE: If fur is too dirty to spot clean, have it cleaned by a professional fur cleaner.  Any local furrier who deals with fur products or a local dry cleaner who is familiar with fur cleaning will work. Refresh your fur every so often with a glazing treatment from a local furrier. Glazing cleans the fur and also replenishes oils to maintain a furs longevity.

SUEDE & LEATHER

  • cleaning with a clean dry towel works for small stains and soil
  • remove stains or marks by gently rubbing them with a pencil eraser
  • brush your suede with a suede brush with soft bristles with wire inserts

NOTE: Only rub suede in one direction. If suede or leather is too dirty to spot clean, have it cleaned by a professional leather cleaner.

Drying

FUR

  • shake out wet or damp fur
  • hang it to dry in a well ventilated room
  • once dry shake it again and comb or brush fur gently if the hairs seem a little bristly

NOTE: Don’t panic if your fur gets a little wet, most furs can handle snow and light rain. If your fur has been soaked through you should immediately take it to a furrier for proper treatment. Excessive heat will cause the leather/fur pelt to harden and shrink. DO NOT tumble or force dry. Air movement while drying is recommended.

SUEDE & LEATHER

  • pat dry with dry clean cloth
  • hang it to dry in a well ventilated room
  • use protective spray to re-coat the suede or leather product
