Our loved coffee, some people call it the black gold, the morning dew, the sacred ambrosia, etc etc. Coffee has become a culture on its own. The tantalizing scent of roast coffee beans brewing is enough to drag even the most hardened sleeper out of bed faster than a spazzing alarm clock.
So What Happens When It Gets on Leather?
As you know, coffee stains can happen anywhere and in the most inappropriate times too. Examples of this could be, like right before going to work (on your crisp white shirt), and there are many situations where we can be a little clumsy. Anyway the story is not different when we talk about a coffee stain in our leather goods. Matter of fact, this type of stain in leather can be harder to clean than in other materials but we are here to help you out with this.
How To Get Rid Of Then then???
Ideally, you’re going to want to get the leather coffee stain immediately after it’s spilled. Dab it with a soft, clean cloth. Don’t rub. Rubbing just pushes your coffee further into the leather’s pores, which is the opposite of fixer-upper-ing. Dab that leather coffee stain until you’ve gotten all you can get.
If the leather coffee stain has already set and dried, you’ll just skip straight to this next step
: the leather cleaner
. Make sure it’s a cleaner specifically designed for leather. We recommend you follow your leather manufacturer’s instructions when determining what to use on your leather, especially in suede’s case. If all else fails, you can try a homebrew treat I like: a concoction of mild soap and water, mixed together in a bowl until you’ve got lots of suds. Use these suds to clean the leather coffee stain (don’t get it too wet), and afterward leave it to dry in a cool, indoors area away from sunlight and direct heat
Lastly but not less important, If the leather coffee stain is still giving you problems, one more trick to try is cornstarch. Sprinkle that stuff on and leave it overnight. Cornstarch has very absorbent properties and can pull stuff out of your leather pretty well. It might not get everything, but it will help remove the bothersome leather coffee stain at the surface. After the starch’s had a night to sit, lightly brush it off with a soft bristle brush and enjoy your handiwork.
