How to Clean Leather Car Seats

2022 Buick Encore GX Interior

Leather seats are stylish and provide a nice look to any vehicle’s interior. Yet, like any part of your car, they’re going to get worn out and dirty from your day-to-day routine in Fairmont. Whether it’s new or pre-owned, you want that look and feel to remain consistent, however long you have that car. We’ve come up with a few ways to keep your leather seats fresh and clean no matter what you encounter during your Morgantown travels.



Conditioning Leather Car Seats: Make Your Seats Shine

Maintaining your seats at home is convenient, but without the right tools can be a disaster waiting to happen. To make everything work, follow these steps while doing leather seat care.

  1. Use a vacuum to remove any existing dirt or debris that might be visible on the seats beforehand.
  2. You’re going to need a “ph-neutral” cleaning solution, as an incorrect item might cause damage. Do not use common household cleaners or furniture polish as that may stain the leather. Instead, you can look online for ‘neutral car interior solutions’ or reach out to our parts center for help choosing the right cleanser. This will provide the ideal outcome for conditioning your leather car seats.
  3. Use a microfiber cloth and brush with soft bristles to handle any upholstery. Apply the car cleaning solution to your cloth and move it along the interior across any space. Once you’re finished, wait until it fully dries. Take a new cloth and apply it along the already dry surfaces.

More Leather Seat Care Tips

  1. Spots and imperfections can happen at any time. Keep a bottle of leather cleaner and a microfiber cloth in your car, in case you need to do a quick cleanup.
  2. Try to keep your car parked in the shade or a garage as much as possible. Lengthy sun exposure and heat can warp, crack or damage the leather.
  3. Always inspect your interior every few weeks for a short amount of time. This can determine any spots or imperfections you can take care of before they become more noticeable or damaging.
