Wiping Down Leather Seat

Below, our service team can teach you how to clean leather car seats in just a few easy steps!

Tips on How to Clean Leather Car Seats

If you’re ready to take on leather seat care in your own Peoria driveway, learn how to clean leather car seats through these four simple steps:

  1. To get started, remove the dust, dirt, and debris from your vehicle with a vacuum.
  2. Next, apply a pH-neutral cleaning solution to your leather upholstery. Be careful to avoid any perforations with the liquid cleaner.
  3. With a microfiber cloth and a soft-bristled brush, gently clean the upholstery.
  4. Once your seats are clean, apply a leather conditioner and gently work it in with a microfiber cloth. Allow the conditioner to dry, then buff it out with a fresh microfiber cloth. Using a leather conditioner will keep your seats supple and prevent cracking.

What Cleaning Products Should Be Used?

Ideally, you’ll want to use a colorless, damp rag to lightly dust the seats in your car. If your interior needs a more thorough cleaning, you can use a mixture of warm water and soap or a specially-made leather cleaner to wipe down your seats. Your owner’s manual may contain specific recommendations for cleaning materials. No matter what products you select, you’ll want to avoid the following when cleaning your car’s leather surfaces:

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

Additional Leather Seat Care Tips

  1. Travel with a small bottle of leather cleaner and microfiber cloths. This will enable you to handle spills as they crop up, avoiding any damage to your interior.
  2. If you can, park your vehicle in a garage as often as possible. The protection from extreme weather will prolong the lifespan of your leather upholstery.
  3. If you’re out and about, park in a shaded spot whenever you can. Heavy sun exposure can lead to sun bleaching, cracking, and damage to your leather.
