Leather seats are expensive. Keep them looking that way with little cleaning and conditioning. Let us see how to clean them properly.
Things You Need
- Vacuum cleaner
- Leather cleaning solution
- Clean dry cloths
- Spray bottle with water
- Leather conditioner
- Lemon juice and cream of tartar (optional)
- Park the car in a shady area.
- Vacuum the seats thoroughly making sure you remove all the dirt.
- Apply leather cleaning solution to a dry sponge and wipe the seats in circular motion. For stubborn stains, apply a paste of lemon juice and cream of tartar. It is best to test a small, hidden area to make sure that the cleaning solution won’t cause any damage.
- Dry the seat with a clean cloth.
- Repeat with the other seats one at a time, rubbing the cleaning solution with the sponge and drying with a cloth.
- When all the seats are clean and dry, apply leather conditioner to clean cloth and wipe all the seats with the conditioner. For quick clean-up’s, use leather wipes found in the auto stores that contain both cleaner and conditioner.
- Let the seats dry for at least an hour.
