How to Clean Leather Car Seats

Cleaning Leather Car Seat

Buying a new vehicle can be an exciting experience. It’s delivered in pristine condition, and you want to ensure it remains that way. If your new vehicle has leather seats, it’s important to know how to keep them cleaned and conditioned. Let’s check out a few tips on how to properly clean leather seats.

Leather Seat Care

Here are some of the most important tips to keep your leather looking clean and new.

  1. Thoroughly vacuum each seat, ensuring you are getting into every nook and cranny.
  2. After ensuring the seat is free of any debris, use a high-quality pH-neutral multi-purpose cleaner. It’s important to avoid the perforations in the seat when cleaning.
  3. Use an ultra-soft microfiber towel and a soft detailing brush to agitate the cleaner and dislodge any dirt or grime.
  4. After the seats are dry, it’s important to protect them with a quality leather sealant or conditioner. Apply the conditioner, allow it to dry, and then gently wipe off with a premium microfiber towel. This will help take the shine out of the seats, and return them to the factory matte finish.

What Cleaning Products Should Be Used?

To keep your leather seats looking new, you should use a premium microfiber and pH-neutral leather cleaner to keep your seats in Brooklyn looking great. Often, your vehicle’s owner’s manual will include some recommended products that are safe for the seats. Regardless of which cleaning solution you ultimately choose, it’s important to use only ph-neutral products, and avoid harsh cleaners such as:

  • Dish soap
  • Detergents
  • Household cleaners

Furthermore, only premium microfibers and brushes should be used. Avoid uses the following on your leather seats:

  • Anything sharp
  • Towels that could transfer color to the leather

More Useful Leather Cleaning Tips

  1. If you’re always on the road, it’s a good idea to keep a quality leather cleaner and premium microfiber in your vehicle to clean any spills or other debris while traveling around the streets of Brooklyn.
  2. Storing your vehicle in a garage is ideal, however, if you don’t have garage access, ensure your vehicle is parked in the shape to avoid extreme temperatures.
  3. While exploring all Queens has to offer, ensure you park your vehicle in a shaded spot so it’s shielded from the sun’s damaging UV rays, which can cause leather to crack.
