Tips on How to Clean Leather Car Seats

Leather seat care doesn’t take much time out of your schedule, and the results are well worth it. Here is a brief rundown of how to keep your leather upholstery spotless:

Follow these simple steps to get your leather car seats clean and looking like new again: 

  1. Grab a vacuum for a surface clean. You’ll want to sweep over the seats and backing, but also get into the crevices. This will eliminate dirt, crumbs, and dust.
  2. Now that your seats are free of debris, apply a pH-neutral cleaning solution. If you have perforated leather, avoid getting the solution into the perforations. Use a clean microfiber and soft-bristled brush to gently work the cleanser into the leather.
  3. Once your seats are clean, it’s time to condition. Conditioner moisturizes the leather, so it doesn’t crack or peel over time. Apply an automotive leather conditioner to your seats with clean microfiber cloth. The conditioner will soak into the leather, and then you can simply buff the surface.

Choosing Your Leather Seat Care Products

Learning how to clean leather car seats is one thing, but knowing what products to use is another. While one driver in Ooltewah may swear by one brand of leather conditioner, another in Dalton might prefer something else completely. The important thing is to select automotive leather seat care products specifically rather than general purpose products – and our parts department is happy to help. Here are a few things to avoid:

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

And no matter what cleanser you choose, we recommend stashing a travel-sized bottle of cleanser and a few microfibers in your car. If you spill something while out and about in Athens, you can clean it up in an instant.
