How to Clean Leather Car Seats

Cleaning Leather Car Seat

Leather seats can take your cabin to the next level, but the big payoff requires more meticulous leather seat care. Learn how to clean leather car seats with Hendrick Kia of Cary, so you can be sure you are taking care of them properly and you can continue to enjoy sitting on them during your Raleigh commutes! Feel free to contact us with any questions. 

Process on How to Clean Leather Car Seats

Provide leather seat care by following these steps:

  1. Remove all garbage and put away your items. Then, vacuum your seats to get rid of any dirt and dust. 
  2. Use a pH-neutral cleaning solution to your upholstery. Be sure to prevent getting any cleaner into the perforations. 
  3. Then, take a microfiber cloth and soft-bristled brush and you can use them to carefully clean the leather upholstery. 
  4. Apply an approved leather conditioner to your leather seats and then wipe the surfaces with a clean microfiber cloth. Once the conditioner is dry, use another clean cloth to buff it in again. The conditioner will prevent your seats from cracking. 

Leather Seat Care: Products

For daily, quick dusting, you should use a colorless, simple damp rag. However, if you want a more thorough cleaning, combine warm water with some soap or a specially made leather cleaner and you can use the mixture to wipe down the seats. For specific recommendations on your particular Kia model in Durham, consult your owner’s manual! 

Prevent using the following items on your leather seats:

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

More Leather Care Tips

  1. Store a travel bottle of leather cleaning solution and some clean microfiber cloths in your trunk, so you are always prepared for any accidents in the cabin.
  2. Park your car in your garage as often as possible. The extreme temperature will shorten the lifespan of leather seats.
  3. If you’re commuting in the Apex area and you need to park in between, be sure to find a spot with shade to avoid sun bleaching and damage.
