When shopping for a new car, many Scottsdale drivers prefer leather seats over cloth, since they provide a more luxurious feel. However, leather seats need more maintenance to ensure they stay in optimal condition for many years! To learn more about how to clean leather car seats, explore our tips and tricks on leather car seat care below!



Tips on Leather Seat Care

Follow these simple leather seat care steps and your leather car seats will look pristine:

  1. Using a vacuum, remove any dirt or debris from the surface and crevices
  2. Then, apply a pH-neutral cleaning solution to the leather seats. However, if you have perforated leather seats, do not get the liquid cleaning solution inside of the perforations. Apply the cleaner carefully to avoid soaking the material.
  3. Clean the leather upholstery with a soft-bristled brush and microfiber cloth
  4. Once the seats are clean, apply an approved leather conditioner to your seats to prevent your leather seats from cracking. Again, use a microfiber cloth to work in the conditioner, but only after the conditioner is dry.

What Cleaning Products Should Be Used for Leather Car Seats?

For regular leather seat care, dust your upholstery with a damp, colorless cloth occasionally. To clean the seats more effectively, use warm water with soap or a specially designed leather cleaner. Your owner’s manual may have a list of recommended products to safely use on your seats. To protect your leather seats, there are items you should always avoid:

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

Addition Leather Seat Care Tips

  1. Keep a small bottle of leather cleaning solution and clean microfiber cloths in your glove compartment. If you need to quickly clean your leather upholstery after a day to Paradise Valley with the family, this would do it.
  2. Keeping your vehicle in a garage rather than the Chandler sunshine and extreme temperatures is another way to improve the longevity of your leather upholstery.
  3. Always try to park in the shade when commuting or running errands in order to prevent sun bleaching and damage.
