Tips and Tricks on How to Clean Leather Car Seats

When it comes to leather seat care, knowing how to clean leather seats correctly is essential. Here is how to get started:

  1. Vacuum the crevices of your seats to get rid of excess dirt, dust, and debris. 
  2. When the upholstery has been vacuumed,apply a pH-neutral cleaning solution to your upholstery. If you have perforated leather seats, be careful to avoid getting the cleaning solution into the perforations. 
  3. Gently clean the upholstery using a microfiber cloth and soft-bristled brush.
  4. Once you have thoroughly cleaned your leather seats, applying an approved leather conditioner is recommended. Leather conditioner helps prevent cracking and keeps the upholstery supple. Apply the conditioner with a clean microfiber cloth. After the conditioner has dried, buff it in with a different clean microfiber cloth. 

Leather-Safe Cleaning Products 

To give your seats a quick refresh, use a colorless, damp rag to lightly dust the upholstery. If your leather seats require a more thorough cleaning, use warm water with a little soap or a specially made leather cleaner. There may be recommendations in your owner’s manual regarding what products to use, so it is a great place to start your research. There are several products you will want to avoid when cleaning your leather seats.

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

Leather Seat Care Tips

  1. No matter where the road takes you in Hudson and beyond, it is a good idea to always have a travel bottle of leather cleaning solution and clean microfiber cloths on hand. Keep your seats clean on-the-go! 
  2. If your vehicle has leather seats, try to park in a garage as much as possible. Extreme temperatures can wreak havoc on your upholstery. 
  3. When you are out and about in Merrimack running errands, try parking in the shade whenever possible. This helps minimize sun bleaching and damage.
