Barcelona chairs are notable exceptions to the general plan of offering well-designed homes and excellently made furniture to the "common man" in the modern era. At first glance, they appear lavish, luxurious, and expensive because of their design and material. As a result, cleaning and restoring the original premium look is extremely difficult. Here are a few tips that can make this tedious task easier for you;
Clear debris using a Vacuum cleaner
Make sure you vacuum your furniture before beginning to clean it. Regular vacuuming can help Barcelona furniture last longer. You should use a vacuum that has a soft brush attachment. Make sure to get into the cracks and crevices as well as between the cushions with the vacuum. Dry it off with a cloth. You can use a cotton or microfiber cloth. Vacuum and dust problem areas carefully. Stains can be treated later with soap or other cleaning products
Make a cleaner using water and soap
Prepare your cleaner after you have vacuumed and dusted. Basic household products can be used to clean leather. Bleach and ammonia will damage white leather when cleaned. Use a little water, mild soap, and some vinegar instead. Use a damp cloth to wipe the leather down. If you want to clean white leather naturally, try using a mixture of ½ cup olive and ¼ cup vinegar.
Avoid using a soaked cloth while cleaning it
A damp cloth is what most designers recommend after all this is a chair, not a dish. You should always keep an eye on how much water you use to clean your chair. Spray some water over your cleaning cloth, making sure that it is damp, but not soaked. Just enough moisture on the cloth will absorb any dust on the chair.
Be extra careful in case of accidental stains
Barcelona pieces are antiques, as is the material. No matter how careful you are, something could still happen to you. In case of stains on upholstery, extra care must be taken. Vacuuming upholstery regularly keeps the fabric looking good and prevents dust and crumbs from settling into the seat. You can wipe the whole couch down with a clean, dry microfiber cloth.
Use a leather conditioner every six to twelve months.
Consider purchasing cleaning products once you get the manufacturer's information about the upholstery, since it may be made of different kinds of materials. When it comes to leather conditioners, think of it like aftershave: sometimes it may not seem necessary, but over time, you will notice its effects. In the case of a white or black Barcelona chair, the conditioner would differ.
Cleaning the steel stand
While cleaning steel stands, experts recommend avoiding detergents and regular cleaning agents. A vinegar-water spray is recommended instead. Apply it to the entire piece. After you have cleaned the furniture with a microfiber cloth, allow it to dry for a while. Next, add a few drops of olive oil to another cloth and rub gently.
