How To Clean Leather Car Seats

Wiping Down Leather Seat

 


We get it. Leather seat care can be frustrating. Which cleaning products do you use? How do you keep the leather from cracking? You probably have a lot of questions, much like many of our New Braunfels customers. But the team at our service center wants you to be informed. So, we’ve put together a handy guide below on how to clean leather car seats.

How to Protect Your Leather Seats from the Sun

Our Schertz summers can be especially cruel to leather, making leather seat care a challenge. Sunlight can cause leather to fade. It can cause it to discolor. It can even cause it to crack. Here are some tips for caring for your leather seats when sunlight is involved:

  • If you can keep your car parked in a garage, under a carport, or under a shade tree, do so.
  • If you have to keep your car parked in the sun, consider buying some inexpensive car shades that you can place in your windshield and on your windows.
  • Clean leather seats regularly and in the right way!

How to Clean Leather Car Seats in Five Steps

Proper leather seat care will not only keep your seats clean but can prolong their lives. Follow these simple steps:

How to Clean Leather Car Seats

  • Gather all of your supplies – vacuum cleaner, saddle soap or other leather cleaner, leather conditioner, two microfiber cloths or a soft-bristled brush
  • Gently vacuum the seats, taking care not to rub any dirt in
  • Test the cleaner on a small spot that can’t be easily seen. If the spot is discolored, don’t use the cleaner.
  • Spray the cleaner on a microfiber cloth (not the seat), and apply
  • Gently rub in the leather conditioner. If your seats are perforated, take care not to let cleaner or water get trapped in the tiny holes.
