How to Clean Leather Car Seats

Buying a car from a luxury brand like Jaguar often means you’re getting a vehicle with leather seats, and this can be fantastic news! However, while leather seats are more stylish and more comfortable than standard cloth seats, they often demand more upkeep so they can remain in the excellent condition they originally came in. If you follow the leather seat care tips from our experts at Jaguar Mission Viejo, you can be certain your car’s upholstery will remain in exceptional condition for years to come.

How Do You Keep Leather Seats in Good Condition?

Below is a step-by-step set of simple tasks you must complete in order to keep your leather seats in the best possible condition:

  • Vacuum the Seats: Use a vacuum in order to discard all of the built-up dirt, dust, and debris that’s made its way into the crevices of your seats.
  • Clean the Seats: Using a pH-neutral cleaning solution, take a microfiber hand towel and soft-bristled brush and lightly apply the solution to the upholstery. Also, be careful as to not spill any of your cleaning fluid into perforated seats.
  • Condition the Seats: Pair leather conditioner with an unused microfiber cloth and rub the conditioner into your leather seats.
  • Protect the Leather Against the Sun: A trick to keeping your leather seats from deteriorating in quality is to try as often as possible to park the vehicle in shade and outside of the sun’s harmful rays. Utilize tree shade or garages located in Coto De Caza when you need to park your car.

What Cleaning Products Should Be Used on Leather Seats?

Before you go ahead and begin cleaning your seats, though, you’ll want to have the right cleaning products and tools. For the best results, you’ll first want to use a damp, plain-colored rag in order to wipe away any dust on your car seats. If you’re looking to give your seats a deeper clean, pair warm water with either some soap or leather cleaner to wash your seats. To be certain you’re using the best leather conditioner for your specific model’s seats, you can check your owner’s manual for recommendations. Below we’ve listed some specific items you would never want to use when caring for leather seats:

  • Detergents
  • Furniture polish
  • Hard-bristled brushes
  • Household cleaner
  • Dark-colored cloths
