How to Clean Leather Car Seats

You spend a lot of time in your new or used car truck or SUV so you don’t want your interior seats to accumulate trash, food wrappers, toys, and anything else for a dirty or uncomfortable ride. Even if you’re not planning a road trip for your family any time soon, you should give the interior of your vehicle a thorough deep cleaning. Follow the helpful tips below from Ryan Honda to ensure your leather car seats last as long as possible.

Steps to Cleaning Leather Car Seats

Drivers in Watford City who have vehicle accents or seats made of leather know how challenging it can be to keep the material soft. There are a few steps you can take to safeguard interior leather against damage:

  1. Vacuum the seats of your vehicle regularly. If you don’t have a vacuum at home suitable for the job, many car wash locations have high-powered vacuums you may use for free. Remove dirt, debris or dust by vacuuming the crevices and gaps of your car seats consistently.
  2. Habitually clean your leather car seats. It’s best to use a cleansing solution that’s not too harsh and has a neutral pH. To clean the upholstery, gently wipe the seats with a microfiber cloth or a brush with soft bristles. Also, be careful not to get any cleaning solution into the perforations of the seats.
  3. To reduce sun-damage, condition the leather of your accents and seats. Using a different microfiber cloth, rub leather conditioner in small circular motions into the seats. Do your best to further protect the leather by parking in the shade, a garage or other area out of the sun.

Products to Use When Cleaning Leather Car Seats

When you schedule service for your Honda or any other vehicle, maintenance experts are mindful of the products they use. You should do the same when cleaning leather car seats. Keep the following in mind:

  • Use a damp colorless microfiber cloth to remove any dust and surface debris before conditioning the leather.
  • If the leather needs a more thorough cleaning, use lukewarm water with soap specifically made for leather.
  • Don’t use ordinary household cleaners.
  • Don’t use a dark-colored cloth as the color may bleed into the material.
