Tips on How to Clean Leather Car Seats

Keep your leather seat looking brand new again by following these simple steps:

  1. First, vacuum the crevices of your seats to remove any dust, dirt, or debris.
  2. With the debris gone, apply a pH-neutral cleaning solution to your upholstery but make sure you don’t get any liquid cleaner into any perforations.
  3. Use a microfiber cloth and soft-bristled brush to gently clean the leather upholstery.
  4. After your seats are clean, apply an approved leather conditioner to your seats and gently work it in using a clean microfiber cloth. Allow the conditioner to dry completely before buffing in with another clean microfiber cloth. Using a leather conditioner will help keep your seats supple and avoid cracking.

What Cleaning Products Should I Use?

Use a colorless, damp rag to lightly dust your seats at your home near Overland Park, KS. For a thorough wash, use warm water with some soap or a specially made leather cleaner to wipe down the seats. Always refer to your vehicle’s owner’s manual for any recommendations. There are products you should avoid using on your leather seats, such as:

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

Additional Leather Care Tips

  1. Keep a travel bottle of leather cleaning solution and clean microfiber cloths on hand in your vehicle. This helps keep your seats clean of dust, spills, and debris while on the go around the Stilwell, KS area.
  2. If you have access to a garage, store your vehicle in it as much as possible. It’s recommended to avoid extreme temperatures to help preserve the life of your leather.
  3. When out running errands in Lee's Summit or running errands in Leawood, watch out for shaded parking spots. Parking in the shade helps prevent sun bleaching and damage.
