Tips for Leather Seat Care

If you’re hoping to keep your leather seats looking like new for your daily commute from North Canton to Canton, follow these steps to learn how to clean leather car seats:

  1. First, start by vacuuming the crevices of your seats to remove any dust, dirt, or debris. 
  2. Once you’ve cleared away the major debris, apply a pH-neutral cleaning solution to your upholstery. Make sure to keep any liquid cleaner out of the perforations.
  3. Use a microfiber cloth and soft-bristled brush to lightly clean the upholstery. 
  4. Once your seats are clean, apply an approved leather conditioner to the seats. Gently work the conditioner into the seats with a microfiber cloth. Allow the upholstery to dry, then buff it in with a fresh microfiber cloth. The use of a leather conditioner will help prevent cracking to keep your seats supple. 

What Cleaning Products Should Be Used?

To care for your leather seats, you’ll want to use a simple, colorless, rag to gently dust your seats. For a more thorough cleaning, you can use warm water and a small amount of soap. You can check your owner’s manual to find approved options. No matter what cleaner you select, there are a few things to avoid when cleaning your seats, including: 

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

Additional Leather Care Tips

  1. Travel with a small bottle of leather cleaning solution and some microfiber cloths for quick cleaning on the go. 
  2. If you have the option, park your car in a garage as much as possible. Avoiding extreme weather conditions will help preserve your leather. 
  3. When out and about in Akron, park in the shade when you can. Too much sun exposure can cause sun bleaching and damage!
