Tips on How to Clean Leather Car Seats

These simple steps to leather seat care will keep your upholstery as good as new: 

  1. 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?

To maximize your leather seat care, you want to be sure to use the right cleaning products and materials. A colorless, simple damp rag will work for dusting your car seats in Southbury. When you want to do a more thorough wash, use warm water with a bit of soap or a specially made leather cleaner to wipe the seats. Your owner’s manual will have specific recommendations. No matter which cleaner you use, avoid the following: 

  • 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 Waterbury. 
  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 Southbury or running errands in Torrington, be on the lookout for shaded parking spots. Parking in the shade can prevent sun bleaching and damage.
