Tips on How to Clean Leather Car Seats

Follow these simple steps for leather seat care and to and make them look new again: 

  1. First, vacuum the crevices of your car seats to remove any dirt, dust, or debris. 
  2. Next,apply a pH-neutral cleaning solution to your leather upholstery. Try not to get any liquid cleaner into the perforations. 
  3. Use a clean microfiber cloth or soft-bristled brush to clean the leather seats gently. 
  4. When your seats are clean, apply a leather conditioner and gently rub it in using another microfiber cloth. Let the conditioner dry. Then, buff it in with another clean microfiber cloth. This will help keep your seats supple and avoid any cracking. 

What Cleaning Products To Use For Leather Seat Care

Use a damp white rag to dust your car seats lightly. When it’s time for a more thorough wash, use warm water and a bit of soap or specially made leather cleaner to wipe off your leather seats. Check your owner’s manual for recommendations, or call the auto experts in the Apostolakis Honda parts center, near Boardman. Avoid using these products on your leather seats: 

  • Household cleaner
  • Furniture polish
  • Sharp objects that may scratch or poke your seats
  • Dark cloths that may bleed onto your upholstery
  • Harsh detergents

Additional Leather Seat Care Tips

  1. Keep a travel-sized bottle of leather cleaning solution and a clean microfiber cloth in your vehicle for emergency use. This will help you keep your seats clean and protected after any sudden spills while driving around Youngstown. 
  2. If you can, store your vehicle in a garage as much as possible to avoid exposure to extreme temperatures. 
  3. When running errands, watch for shaded parking spots to prevent sun bleaching and damaging your leather upholstery.
