Leather car seats definitely make those long Hannibal, MO drives a lot more comfortable. However, leather car seats do require a little more care and maintenance to keep them clean than does fabric. Luckily, the service department has put together a guide on proper leather seat care to help you keep your leather seats looking fresh. Learn how to properly clean leather car seats with Shottenkirk Kia of Quincy.



Tips on How to Clean Leather Car Seats

To execute proper leather seat care, follow these simple steps:

  1. Start off by vacuuming out your leather seats. Make sure you get in between the crevices to catch any dirt and debris.
  2. After you have vacuumed out all of the debris, apply a pH-neutral cleaning solution to the upholstery to avoid getting any liquid cleaner into any sensitive spots.
  3. Gently clean the leather upholstery with a microfiber cloth and soft-bristled brush.
  4. After your seats are clean, use a leather conditioner on your seats, and gently apply the conditioner with a microfiber cloth.
  5. Let the conditioner dry and then buff it in with another clean microfiber cloth. Conditioner helps your leather seats avoid cracking.

What Cleaning Products Should Be Used?

Essentially, here is all you need to keep your leather seats looking like new on the Keokuk, IA roads: a damp rag, warm water, soap, and a specially made leather cleaner. You can check your owner’s manual for more specific cleaning supplies. Here is what you should avoid when cleaning your leather seats:

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

Additional Leather Care Tips

For even more ways to keep you leather seats looking and feeling fresh, here are some other helpful tips:

  1. Keep a travel-sized bottle of leather cleaning solution and clean microfiber cloths in your vehicle. This way you can clean parts of your seat whenever they get too dirty when driving through Pittsfield.
  2. If applicable, use garage storage as much as possible. Avoiding extreme temperatures can preserve the life of your leather seats.
