How To Clean Leather Car Seats

Hand with microfiber cloth cleaning Interior modern car.

There’s nothing like enjoying a ride around Woodway from your leather-wrapped driver’s seat. But if you want to make sure that your cabin stays luxurious, learning how to clean leather car seats properly is key. How can you avoid dry, dull leather and cracked finishes? Let’s go through the tools and techniques you need to know for a beautiful cabin:

Keeping Leather Seats in Shape

While we recommend visiting our service department for a good deep clean and condition from time to time, you can perform simple maintenance from your home in Hewitt!

  • Vacuum Your Seats: Vacuum dust and debris regularly, so these particles don’t scratch the delicate finish of your upholstery.
  • Clean Your Seats:  Grab a pH-neutral cleaning solution, a microfiber cloth, and a soft-bristled brush to carefully scrub away grime.
  • Condition Your Seats: A quality leather conditioner seals in moisture and helps repel dirt. Just apply with a microfiber cloth and enjoy the results.
  • Protect Your Leather: Preventing damage is always easier than undoing damage, so take the right precautions. Avoid UV damage by parking in a garage or in the shade when possible.

Finding Safe Cleaning Products

If your car has leather seats, you’ll want to add the following to your DIY car care kit:

  • A pH-neutral cleaning solution
  • A stock of microfiber cloths
  • A soft-bristled brush
  • A quality leather conditioner

We recommend taking a look at your owner’s manual to see if the manufacturer recommends any products, though we’d be happy to help you select something suitable for your vehicle at our parts department as well. While some customers use warm water and soap, getting the proper cleaning solutions is vital to protect the integrity of your leather. Options like harsh detergents, household cleaners, furniture polish, and others can seriously damage your upholstery.
