How To Clean Leather Car Seats

how to clean leather seats

Mamaroneck drivers know that leather car seats turn any drive or commute into a special occasion with their incomparable feel and luxurious style that make the interior of your car resemble your living room couch. However, it is important to know how to clean leather seats in order to ensure that they don’t lose their stunning shine and unique feel.

Best Practices for Detailed Leather Seat Care

Proper leather seat care begins with a regular cleaning routine before dirt, grime, food particles, and drink stains have a chance to dry and harden. Once a month in the Mamaroneck and Harrison area is regular enough to begin with. Depending on use, this timeframe can always be adjusted later.

  • Vacuum Begin with vacuuming the entire interior of the car paying special attention to the leather seats. Use a pointed attachment to the vacuum if possible so that you can penetrate into the seams.
  • Apply cleaner Take a clean rag and apply specialized leather cleaner over the whole surface taking care to implicitly follow the instructions on the product label. Incorrect use may result in damage to the leather seat surface.
  • Wipe off product Using a Chamois leather cloth, wipe off the product, taking care to work the cloth into the seams and tight corners. Leaving product residue behind could stain the leather.
  • Allow seats to dry It’s important to allow the seats to now dry completely before any further use to make sure that the leather is fully protected.

Helpful Tips on Excellent Leather Seat Care

  • Items to Have on Hand – You’ll need microfiber cloths, a soft brush, and a trusted high-quality leather cleaner.
  • Leather Wipes – Leather wipes are easy to use and can be bought as a cleaner/conditioner.
  • Park Vehicle Out of Heavy Sunlight – Leather seats can fade and dry out over time with excessive exposure to the sun during the summer months in the New Rochelle area.
  • Test Leather Cleaner – Before using the leather on the entire surface of the leather seats, test a small amount on an obscure patch to make sure there is no discoloration.
  • Avoid Silicone, Wax or Oil-based Products – These products have the ability to damage the seat leather.
  • Don’t Overuse Cleaners – Excessive use of the cleaning products will eventually cause damage to the leather seat surface.
