How to Remove Water Stains From Leather

Leather is manufactured from the hide of a variety of animals including cow and deer. Leather is a popular choice for furniture and garments. Leather items are generally expensive and you must take proper care of it to keep the leather looking its best. Most people do not normally think water has the ability to stain items. However, water that sits on leather for long periods will eventually develop an outline on the leather where the water had sat.

Leather is used for expensive products and must be cared for properly to preserve the item.

Step 1

Fill a bowl with water. Allow the water to reach room temperature.

Step 2

Submerge a sponge in the water. Wring the sponge to remove excess water.

Step 3

Dampen the water spot with the sponge by blotting the area. Continue dampening the spot and begin to move outward. Dampen the whole area of the leather. This will reduce the point of demarcation.

Step 4

Allow the leather to air dry naturally out of direct sunlight.

Step 5

Apply a drop of leather conditioner to a soft cloth.

Step 6

Wipe and buff the conditioner onto the leather to restore the moisture that was lost during the cleaning process.
