How to Clean Leather Car Seats

Think your leather car seats could do with a clean before you next commute into Miamisburg? Simply follow these steps:

  • Vacuum to remove any dust, dirt, or other debris. Be sure to get right into the crevices of your seats.
  • Now the debris is gone, apply a pH-neutral cleaning solution. Make sure you don’t get liquid cleaner into any perforations.
  • Gently clean the upholstery using a microfiber cloth and soft-bristled brush.
  • Apply an approved leather conditioner, then gently work it in using a clean microfiber cloth.
  • Let the conditioner dry, then buff with another clean microfiber cloth. This will prevent cracking and keep the leather supple.

Which Cleaning Products to Avoid

Leather can be unforgiving when you choose the wrong products, so make sure you always use a colorless damp rag when lightly dusting your seats. You can also use warm water with a bit of soap or a specially made leather cleaner.

Products to avoid include:

  • Sharp Objects
  • Household Cleaners
  • Dark Cloths
  • Detergents
  • Furniture Polish

If in doubt, go ahead and check your owner’s manual.

Additional Leather Seat Care Tips

If you’re really committed to leather car seat care, you should also:

  • Keep a travel bottle of leather cleaning solution and a few clean microfiber cloths available to deal with random dust, spills, and debris.
  • Store your vehicle in a garage as much as possible to avoid the negative impact of extreme temperatures.
  • Look for shaded parking spots to prevent sun bleaching and damage.
