Pavoni leathers require almost no care. In order to maintain the natural look of leather, simply dust with a dry or slightly damp cloth.
Require extra care. If a spill or spot should occur, blot immediately with a clean absorbent cloth or sponge. Do NOT rub the spot with force or pressure. A drop of saddle soap on a damp cloth may remove dirt. This does not apply to suede or nubuck.
Gently blot soiled area with a clean absorbent cloth or sponge. If stain or spill does not disappear, clean by using a circular motion with light to moderate pressure. Do NOT rub with force. If necessary, use a slightly damp cloth with lukewarm water and let air dry. Do NOT use a hair dryer or place near a heater to dry.
Use a mild, non-detergent soap or saddle soap to remove. Apply the soap to a clean sponge or cloth – dampen and wipe the affected area gently. Rinse with lukewarm water and a damp cloth. Allow the leather to air dry.
VITELLINA PELO (HAIR ON HIDE)
For common spills or soil, soak with a paper towel or clean cloth immediately. Wipe with a clean, absorbent cloth or sponge. The cloth should be damp, not wet. You can use a mild non-detergent soap solution or cleaner such as Ivory Soap. Do not use Ivory liquid because it has a detergent base. Do not wash in the washing machine or dry clean. Always allow the hide to air dry, never dry with a hair dryer. Cleaning chemicals should NOT be used. If necessary, we suggest using a vacuum’s soft brush attachment for dust and dirt particles.
SUEDES / NUBUCKS
A damp cloth and a suede rubber brush can be used to remove dust. The removal action should be soft, not harsh.
The best way to remove little stains is with a suede and nubuck block. It looks like an eraser that should be rubbed into the area in a circular motion, it will leave a residue of dust that can be dusted or brushed off. Do not use detergents or foaming agents. Our advice is also to take the object outside and treat it with a protective scotchguard protection.
NEVER use cleaning solvents, furniture polish, oils, varnish, abrasive cleaners, ammonia water or soap with a detergent base.
