COWHIDE CARE,
CLEANING COWHIDE INSTRUCTIONS
Now a days Cowhide has many, many uses in our society, such as upholstery for
furniture and area rugs or wall hangings. Also for coats, jackets, purses, luggage,
hand bags, wallets and many other accessories.

It is tanned leather with fur on one side of the leather that can be used in decorating
and
designing. Cowhide rugs will not move around much when placed on the floor
because of its rough, leathery texture.

Taking care of your cowhide is necessary to prolong its beauty, luster and life. You
will want to keep it clean, avoiding or removing dust particles and dirt or other debris
that will most definitely be brought into your home or office.

Cleaning cowhide sofas, cowhide chairs, cowhide love seats, cowhide ottomans,
cowhide wall hangings and cowhide throw rugs as well as purses. Not to mention
luggage, hand bags, wallets and other accessories including jackets, coats and other
apparel. The following methods apply to every one of these items and any others
you may have.

HAVE ON HAND
BROOM OR WHISK BROOM
VACUUM WITH ATTACHMENTS
CLEAN, WHITE, SOFT CLOTHS
CLEAN, SOFT HAIR BRUSH
CLEAR, MILD DISH WASHER DETERGENT


If a cowhide rug spread it out flat on a clean floor.

If a sofa, chair or other piece of furniture clean off all items.

If a pillow, purse or luggage place it on a clean work surface or table.

If a jacket spread it out on a clean work surface or table.

Sweep the cowhide in the direction that the hair flows to remove any loose debris
from the cowhide. Any remaining debris can be picked off by hand if it is stubborn.

Gently vacuum the cowhide using the hose and brush attachment for upholstery in
the direction that the hair flows.

If a liquid spill has occurred use a soft, clean, white, dry cloth to remove as much as
possible immediately by blotting several times with as many new dry cloths as
necessary.

If a pasty spill such as peanut butter, jelly or anything of that consistency, scrape it in
the direction that the hair flows with a plastic spatula or something similar to get as
much up and off of the cowhide as possible. After that use a soft, clean hair brush to
remove the any remaining debris. Once you have removed all but the residual stain,
soak a clean, soft, white cloth in fairly warm water and blot it to soften the remainder
of the spill and wipe away. Mostly you will always wipe in the direction that the hair
flows, however, sometimes it will be necessary to fluff and cross wipe it to get any
stubborn debris from the bottom of the hairs. Continue to repeat the process as
many times as necessary always using fresh fairly warm water and a new clean, soft,
white cloth. If you can not get it all out after 3 times this way, then let it dry
thoroughly out in between the cleaning process.

After you have done the best you can with clean water and it has dried out
thoroughly, mix a little clear, mild dish washer soap in fairly warm water and try to
get any remaining stain out of any of the lighter color hair. NEVER try to speed up the
drying process in between the procedures with a heat source such as a heater or hair
dryer. You can use a fan or a hair dryer in the no heat mode if you want to though.
