Leather car seat cleaning tips

  • You can use a special leather cleaner, which can be purchased in the automotive section of your favorite stores, but you can also use household items, such as vinegar or laundry detergent. 
  • Do not use wax, oil, or silicone-based products, and do not overdo it when putting the cleaning products onto the seats. 
  • Before you start wiping down with a cleaning product, vacuum the seats first to get rid of large and loose debris. 
  • Check to see if there are perforations anywhere in the leather seats. If so, avoid getting cleaner stuck in those holes. 
  • Use a microfiber towel to help remove surface dirt. Spray the towel with cleaner and wipe the seats. 
  • Use a soft-bristled brush to give the leather a deep clean. Spray the cleaner onto the seats and scrub it down. Be careful not to scrub too hard, and do not use a hard-bristled brush, as it could damage the material. 
  • Wipe the seats clean, and be sure to dry them well. 
  • Consider using leather conditioner, which you can find in stores.
