how to clean leather seats

Purchasing a vehicle with leather seats is an excellent way to make every trip through Hendersonville feel extra luxurious, but keeping leather upholstery in good condition takes a little extra work than cloth. To make sure your car seats stay pristine, use these leather cleaning tips from the pros at Apple Tree Acura.

How Do You Keep Leather Seats in Good Condition?

Cleaning your car seats is an important part of your vehicle maintenance schedule, as it adds to the aesthetics and comfort of your car. Give your leather seats the TLC they need to keep you and your passengers riding in style through Greenville by following these steps:

  • Vacuum Your Seats: Always start by vacuuming dirt, debris, crumbs, and more from the crevices of your seats on a regular basis.
  • Clean Your Seats: Using either a microfiber cloth or soft-bristled brush, gently apply a pH-neutral cleaning solution to your upholstery, being careful not to let any liquid cleaner fall into perforations.
  • Condition Your Seats: After, use a fresh microfiber cloth to rub in leather conditioner.
  • Protect the Leather: Whenever you can, park under shade or in a garage to minimize sun damage on your leather seats.

What Cleaning Products Should Be Used?

Your owner’s manual is an excellent place to reference what are the best products for cleaning leather, but in general, it’s best to stay away from any harsh cleansers such as bleach, detergents, household cleaners, or furniture polish. Warm water with a bit of soap or leather cleaner is safe to wipe down any spills or marks.

It’s also important to use soft tools that won’t scratch your leather seats. To make sure no color transfers to your leather seats, use a white, colorless cloth while cleaning your car seats.
