How to Clean Car Seats: Tips for Maintaining Leather Seats

Follow these tips to maintain your leather seats to keep them in great condition:

  • Vacuum the Seats: Regularly vacuuming your car’s seats helps keep debris, dust, and dirt from building up and eventually breaking down the leather.
  • Clean the Upholstery: If your car’s leather seats are non-perforated, you can use a pH-neutral cleaning solution, as well as microfiber cloth and a soft-bristled brush, to keep the seats clean. Be sure not to get any liquid cleaner into perforated seats.
  • Use a Leather Conditioner: Using a clean and dry microfiber cloth, rub a small amount of leather conditioner into the seats to keep them smooth.
  • Keep the Leather Protected: One of the most effective ways to protect your car’s leather is to keep it out of the sun while running errands near Lawrence. Park in well-shaded areas or invest in a windshield shade from our parts department.

How to Clean Car Seats: Best Cleaning Products for Leather

When you’re dusting your leather car seats in Methuen, be sure to use a clean and colorless microfiber cloth. Also, dampen the cloth slightly to wipe up stubborn dust more easily. If your car seats need a more in-depth wash, mix warm water with a bit of soap or a specially made leather cleaner to wipe down the seats.

Check with your owner’s manual on suggestions on how to clean car seats correctly. Depending on the make of your car, a certain type of leather condition might be recommended. Keep in mind there are some products that should be avoided no matter the car brand or leather type:

  • Detergents
