Nubuck leather, commonly used to make furniture, is made from top grain leather with aniline dye. This velvety textured leather holds up well, but requires cleaning and protective measures to keep it looking and feeling like new. Clean this type of leather furniture with nubuck cleaner and a leather brush. Protect the furniture from spills and stains after cleaning with a waterproof leather protector. Apply a protectant every six months for best results, says Leather World Technologies.
