How To Clean Leather Car Seats

Cleaning Leather Car Seat

Leather seats are often more comfortable for passengers and tend to be more resistant to staining than cloth interiors. If your new Chevy vehicle has the leather upholstery that you have always wanted, it’s important to know that leather upholstery requires proper maintenance. Proper maintenance will keep your upholstery looking brand-new years into the future. 

Dale Earnhardt Jr. Chevrolet has provided you with a guide below that shows you how to clean leather car seats; read on so you can continue driving down roads in a clean, sleek cabin!

Leather Seat Care: Step By Step

Many commuters think that leather seat care is a complicated process, but it is very straightforward. Service centers at dealerships like ours will perform processes that are quite similar to what is highlighted below. These DIY steps below will show you how to clean leather car seats so your vehicle maintains its showroom appearance.

  • Vacuum: You will first need to start off this process by vacuuming your seats to get rid of all the dirt and residue that will ruin the life cycle of your upholstery over time. An inexpensive handheld vacuum cleaner with soft bristles will do the trick.
  • Cleaning solution: Apply the leather-safe cleaning solution to a microfiber cloth. This can be a retail leather cleaner or a DIY solution made up of warm water and a single drop of mild, unscented dish soap.
  • Microfiber cloth: Gently scrub your seats with the cloth after the solution has been applied. 
  • Dry: Use another clean, dry cloth to wipe your seats completely dry immediately so that mold doesn’t form.
