Tips on How to Clean Leather Car Seats

It just takes a few steps for Apex drivers to be on their way to better leather seat care! 

  1. Vacuum the crevices of your seats to remove any dust, dirt, or debris. 
  2. Apply a pH-neutral cleaning solution to your upholstery. Avoid getting any liquid cleaner into any perforations in the leather. 
  3. Use a microfiber cloth and soft-bristled brush to gently clean the leather upholstery. 
  4. Apply an approved leather conditioner to your seats, gently working it in using a clean microfiber cloth. Let the conditioner dry and then buff in with another clean microfiber cloth. This will help keep your seats supple and avoid cracking. 

Additional Leather Car Seat Tips

  • A travel bottle of leather cleaner and a clean microfiber cloth are easy to stash in your car to have handy for emergency cleanings. 
  • Store your vehicle in a garage if possible so the Holly Springs summer sun doesn’t fade or dry your leather seats. Avoid extreme temperatures when possible. 
  • Likewise, try to park in the shade when you’re out driving.
