Tips on Leather Seat Care

We want to make sure Peoria drivers are confident in leather seat care. You can count on these simple steps below on how to clean leather car seats:

  1. Use a soft bristle vacuum to clean up debris and dirt from the crevices and surface.
  2. Carefully apply a pH-neutral cleaning solution directly to the leather seats. If you have perforated leather seats, avoid getting liquid solution in the perforations. Apply cleaner gently to avoid soaking.
  3. Then, use a microfiber cloth or soft-bristled brush to clean for gentle leather seat care.
  4. Finally, apply an approved leather conditioner after the seats are clean to prevent cracking. Use a microfiber cloth after the conditioner dries to work in the product.

Tip: In-between more thorough cleanings that follow the steps above, you can use a damp, colorless cloth for light-duty leather seat care.

Proper Leather Seat Care Products

Now that you know how to clean leather car seats, you need to know the right products to use for leather seat care. For ultimate results, use warm water with soap or specialized leather cleaner. Look to your owner’s manual for recommended products for safe leather seat care.

Avoid the following products to protect your leather seats:

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