Made by bonding polyurethane to fabric, pleather or synthetic leather has evolved from what was once cheap Naugahyde to something much more comparable to actual leather in appearance but not in price. Faux leather, just like real leather, requires care to keep it clean, supple, conditioned and seeming like its expensive cousin. When scrapes look on a pleather ottoman, you may use a number of the very same techniques and products used on actual leather to help repair those scrapes, which makes them virtually unnoticeable.
Mix a teaspoon of mild leather soap using 2 cups of water. Clean the surface of the pleather ottoman with the mix and a soft fabric.
Wipe the ottoman’s surface using a clean, moist cloth to remove any soap residue from the ottoman. Let the pleather dry.
Apply a leather cream conditioner suitable for use on synthetic leathers into the ottoman surface. Distribute the conditioner above the surface using a soft fabric and a circular motion.
Enable the conditioner to dry for at least 15 minutes. Buff that the ottoman’s surface using a clean, soft cloth to restore the appearance of the ottoman and hide any scratches.
