Leather car seat care isn’t hard, but it does require the right products and techniques. Follow our steps below to thoroughly and safely clean your leather seats:

  1. Begin by vacuuming your seats to get rid of any dirt and debris.
  2. Next you’ll need to apply a pH-neutral cleaning solution to your upholstery. However, it’s important to note that you need to make sure you avoid getting this cleanser in any perforations.
  3. You can gently clean your seats using a soft bristled brush or clean microfiber cloth.
  4. Once your seats are clean, you’ll want to apply a leather conditioner to the upholstery. Work this in using circular motions and allow it to dry. This crucial step can help prevent cracking and keep your leather soft.

Appropriate Cleaning Materials for Leather Seat Care

If your seats need a quick dusting, you can wipe them down with a damp, colorless cloth. If a more thorough cleaning is required, you can purchase a speciality leather cleaner or use a small amount of soap and water. Whatever you use on your seats, it’s important that you avoid using the following:

  • Dark cloths
  • Detergents
  • Furniture polish
  • Sharp objects that may scratch
  • Household cleaner
