Tips on How to Clean Leather Car Seats

In order to get your leather car seats looking like new again, follow these steps:

  1. To start, you’ll want to vacuum the crevices of your seats to remove any dust, dirt, or debris. 
  2. Once the debris has been removed,apply a pH-neutral cleaning solution to your upholstery making sure to avoid getting any liquid cleaner into any perforations. 
  3. Use a microfiber cloth and soft-bristled brush to gently clean the leather upholstery. 
  4. After your seats are clean, apply an approved leather conditioner to your seats, and gently work in using a clean microfiber cloth. Let the conditioner dry and then buff in with another clean microfiber cloth. Using a leather conditioner will help keep your seats supple and avoid cracking. 

What Cleaning Products Should Be Used?

When cleaning your leather car seats, use a simple damp rag to lightly dust the seating surfaces. If you’re looking for a bit more of a thorough cleaning, you can use warm water and a bit of soap or a special leather cleaner to wipe down the seats. If you’re unsure about the leather cleaner or what products to avoid for your model, we recommend checking with your owner’s manual. No matter which cleaner you choose, there are few things you want to avoid using on your seats, including: 

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

Additional Leather Care Tips

  1. Keep a travel bottle of leather cleaning solution and clean microfiber cloths on hand in your vehicle. This will help you keep your seats clean of dust, spills, and debris while on the go around Pottstown. 
  2. If you have access to a garage, use that to store your vehicle as much as possible. Avoiding extreme temperatures can help preserve the life of your leather. 
  3. When out running errands in Lancaster or running errands in Allentown, be on the lookout for shaded parking spots. Parking in the shade can prevent sun bleaching and damage.
