Leather or fabric couch? Which is easier to clean & protect from pets?

4 years ago

We are 2 adults remodeling and replacing our family room leather couches. We currently have both leather and fabric couches in our house. Both have suffered at the hands of our cats. The leather is actually harder to keep clean but that's an unfair test because the leather is in a much more high traffic area. Also the leather seemed to require more maintenance in that I was supposed to apply leather conditioner monthly but I eventually stopped over the years. For our next couch, which is easier to keep clean, leather or fabric? Any other advice on considerations on leather vs. fabric?
