Steps to cleaning leather car seats

The first step in cleaning your leather car seats is to get any loose dust and debris off.  You can use a brush or vacuum to do this.  Next, you will want to use a cleaner.  There are several leather cleaning products you can buy, but if you don’t have any you can simply use soap and hot water.  Be careful not to use harsh chemicals or water that is too warm as it may damage your leather.  Next, you will want to dip a cloth into the soap solution and wipe down your seats gently.  You should see the dirt coming off the seats at this point.  You can also use a spray bottle and a dry rag if you prefer.

Vacuum the leather seats using a soft brush attachment.

Vacuuming leather car seats is an essential first step in the cleaning process. This helps to remove dirt that could be rubbed into the leather while it’s being cleaned. To do this, you’ll use a vacuum with a soft brush attachment. Use this attachment to vacuum the seats, working slowly and methodically until all of the loose dirt and debris has been removed.

Create a soap solution using soap and warm water.

  • Create a soap solution using leather cleaner or soap, and warm water.
  • The amount of solution you make will depend on how large the surface area is, but in general you want to create just enough to cover the stain while making sure that your cloth isn’t soaked.

At this point, you can dip your rag into the soap solution, or you can decide to use a spray bottle and spray the soap solution on the seats.  I understand that not everyone has spray bottles, so I will describe the dipping technique.

  • Dip a microfiber cloth into the soap solution.
  • Gently scrub the soiled part of the car seat with the dampened cloth until you start to see it become clean again.
  • If there are more stubborn stains, dip a new part of your cloth into more soap and continue cleaning those spots until they’re gone as well!
  • Rinse out your rag after each use in order to get all the dirt and grime off of it before you move on to another spot on leather seat!

Dip a fresh, clean cloth into the solution and wring out any excess liquid.

Dip a fresh, clean cloth into the solution and wring out any excess liquid. You can use the same cloth, but it might make your soap solution dirty.  Just make sure to thoroughly wring out your cloth into another container before dipping it back into the soap solution. Be sure not to soak the leather, but if you do notice water marks on your seats, dry them immediately with a microfiber towel to avoid damage.  You do not want your seats to be wet for a long period.

Wipe down with a dry cloth.

When you’re done with dipping your cloth into the soap solution and cleaning the seats, you can go ahead and wipe the seats with a dry cloth.  Make sure to get into all of the seams so that you don’t miss any dirt and so that they’re not wet.

Your car seats will look great again!

The leather used to make car seats is a natural product, so it needs a little extra care and special attention. But you can keep your seats looking great and new by using leather conditioner once or twice a year. It’ll also help protect the material against damage caused by UV rays.

In addition to keeping your car seats in good condition, cleaning them regularly will also increase their resale value should you decide to sell your vehicle at some point in the future. No one wants stained or smelly car upholstery!
