How to Clean Leather Car Seats

Cleaning Leather Car Seat

When you purchase a new Buick with leather seats, you can enjoy the more luxurious feel that they offer over cloth, but they do require more TLC. Read this guide by the Sid Dillon Buick of Lincoln service experts to learn all about proper leather seat care.

Step-by-Step Guide to the Leather Seat Care Process

Follow these steps to make your leather car seats like-new:

  1. Vacuum the crevices of your seats to remove any dust, dirt, or debris.
  2. After all of the debris has been removed, apply a pH-neutral cleaning solution to the upholstery. You’ll want to make sure to avoid getting any of the cleaner into the perforations
  3. Use a microfiber cloth and soft-bristled brush to gently clean the leather upholstery.
  4. Once the seats are clean, apply an approved leather conditioner to your seats, and gently work in using a clean microfiber cloth. Let the conditioner dry and then buff it with another clean microfiber cloth. The leather conditioner will help prevent the leather from cracking.

What Cleaning Products Should You Use to Clean Leather Seats?

You should use a simple damp rag to lightly dust their car seats. To more thoroughly wash your seats, you can use warm water with a little bit of soap or a specially made leather cleaner. Keep in mind that you can always check your owner’s manual for recommendations. No matter which cleaner you choose, there are a few things that you’ll need to avoid using on your seats:

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

Additional Tips on Leather Seat Care

  1. It never hurts to keep a travel bottle of leather cleaning solution and clean microfiber cloths in your vehicle. When you’re on the road in Omaha, you never know when you’ll need to clean up spills, dust, or any type of debris.
  2. If your Hickman home has a garage, use that to store your vehicle as much as possible. Keeping your vehicle away from extreme temperatures can help preserve the life of your leather.
  3. As you’re running errands, try to find shaded parking spots to prevent sun bleaching and damage.
