Best Way to Clean Leather Car Seats

Let’s check out a few tips on the best way to clean leather car seats below:

  1. First, make sure you thoroughly vacuum the seats, making sure you get into all the crevices to get rid of any crumbs or other dirt.
  2. Next, choose a pH-neutral cleaning solution to clean the seats. It’s important to make sure you don’t get any cleaner into the perforations.
  3. Gently wipe down the seats with a soft microfiber cloth. 
  4. Now that your seats are cleaned, it’s time to condition them. We recommend using a high-quality microfiber cloth, and gently rubbing the conditioner into the seat. Once you’ve completed the seat, let the conditioner dry before buffing off. Regularly using leather conditioner will help avoid any cracking or other issues in the leather upholstery.

Leather Seat Care: Which Products Should Be Used?

When learning about leather seat care, it’s important to know which products to use. You should only use a damp, colorless microfiber cloth to clean your leather seats. If you have some stubborn dirt that needs additional attention, you could always apply some warm water or some soap solution. However, there are a few things to avoid when cleaning your leather seats. Let’s check out a few below:

  • Pointy objects 
  • Generic household cleaner
  • Dark cloths
  • Harsh Detergents
  • Polish used for furniture 

More Helpful Leather Care Tips

  1. Make sure that you keep a bottle of your pH neutral cleaning solution and microfiber cloths. This will ensure that no matter where you are around Jefferson, you’ll be able to keep your leather seats looking like new.
  2. We recommend that you store your vehicle in a garage if you can, as this will prevent any sun damage from cracking the delicate leather.
  3. Always park under a shaded spot when parking your vehicle around Athens, as this can prevent any sun bleaching or other damage caused by the sun’s harmful UV rays.
