Are you wondering how to clean leather car seats safely and effectively? Tulley BMW of Nashua has provided this guide to ensure that your leather seats remain in pristine condition.

Helpful Suggestions for How to Clean Leather Car Seats

If you want your leather seats to look just as beautiful as the day you purchased your car, the tips below can help:

  1. Before you officially get started, vacuum the crevices of your seats to remove any dust, dirt, or debris. These contaminants can actually damage the upholstery.
  2. After the seats have been vacuumed,apply a pH-neutral cleaning solution to your upholstery. If you have perforated leather seats, be careful that the liquid cleaner does not get into the perforations.
  3. Carefully clean the leather using a soft-bristled brush or a microfiber cloth.
  4. After you have finished cleaning the seats, an additional step that many Lowell, MA drivers take is to apply an approved leather conditioner to the seats. It can help prevent cracking and keep your leather upholstery supple. Use a clean microfiber cloth to work in the conditioner. When it is dry, use a separate, clean, microfiber cloth to buff it to a dull shine. 

What Products Should Be Used to Clean Leather Seats?

For dusting your car seats, it is best to use a colorless, damp rag. If you need to clean the seats a bit more thoroughly, warm water and a small amount of soap or leather cleaner should do the trick. There may be recommendations from the manufacturer in your owner’s manual. There are a few products that all Westford drivers should avoid when cleaning leather seats:

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

More Tips for Leather Seat Care

  1. Keep a travel bottle of leather cleaning solution and clean microfiber cloths on hand in your vehicle. By doing this, you will always be prepared to handle any situation that could potentially damage your seats.
  2. If you are able to store your vehicle in a garage, it is best to do so.
  3. When possible, try to park your vehicle in the shade. The sun can damage and bleach the seats over time.
