How to Clean Leather Car Seats

Man Cleaning Leather Car Seats

Many drivers on Guam prefer to purchase a vehicle with leather seats – and we can’t blame them! Leather seats add a touch of sophistication and style in addition to their comfort. However, before opting for leather seats, keep in mind that they require more maintenance than fabric upholstery. For proper leather seat care, turn to the experts at Triple J Guam.

Tips for How to Clean Leather Car Seats the Right Way

If you want to restore your leather seats to their former glory, simply follow the leather seat care tips provided below:

  1. Before you clean the seats, gently vacuum the upholstery and seat crevices to remove any debris that could cause damage.
  2. After removing any dirt and debris,apply a pH-neutral cleaning solution to your upholstery. If you have perforated leather seats, you will need to be careful with this step. You do not want to get the liquid into the perforations.
  3. Use a microfiber cloth and soft-bristled brush to gently clean the leather upholstery.
  4. Once your seats are sparkling clean, it is a good idea to use an approved leather conditioner. Apply it to the seats and use a clean microfiber cloth to work it into the upholstery. After the conditioner dries, buff it in with another clean microfiber cloth. One of the many benefits of a leather conditioner is that it helps to keep the leather soft and prevents it from cracking.

Recommended Cleaning Products

It is beneficial to use a colorless, simple damp rag to lightly dust your car seats periodically. However, there may be times when you want your seats to have a more thorough cleaning. If this is the case, use warm water with a bit of soap or a specially made leather cleaner to wipe down the seats. Your owner’s manual may have specific recommendations from the manufacturer, so you may want to take a look at it before getting started. In any case, there are several products that are not recommended because they could damage your seats.

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

Additional Leather Care Tips

  1. While you’re on-the-go in Palau, it can be helpful to keep a travel bottle of leather cleaning solution and clean microfiber cloths on hand.
  2. If you are able to store your vehicle in a garage, it is best to do so as much as you can. The leather upholstery will last longer if you are able to avoid extreme temperatures.
  3. Try parking in the shade to prevent sun bleaching and damage to the leather.
