Tips on How to Clean Leather Car Seats

Learn proper leather seat care by following these steps below: 

  1. First, 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 you don’t get 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?

It’s recommended that you use a colorless, simple damp rag to lightly dust the seats. If you’re looking for a more thorough wash, you can use warm water and some soap or a specifically made leather cleaner to wipe down the seats. Refer to your vehicle’s owner’s manual for any recommendations. No matter which cleaner that you use, there are few things to avoid while using them on your seats, such as:

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

Additional Helpful Leather Care Tips

  1. Keep a travel bottle of leather cleaning solution and clean microfiber cloths on hand in your vehicle. This helps keep your seats clean of dust, spills, and debris while running errands in Folsom. 
  2. If you have access to a garage, store your vehicle in it as much as possible. Avoiding extreme temperatures can help preserve the life of your leather. 
  3. When out driving around the Elk Grove or Rocklin areas, watch out for shaded parking spots to prevent sun bleaching and damage.
