How to Clean Leather Car Seats

Supplies:

  1. Leather cleaner, saddle soap, mild leather soap, or 1 part white vinegar/2 parts linseed oil solution
  2. Microfiber towels
  3. Interior brush (make sure it is a soft-bristled brush, NOT a stiff carpet brush)

Instructions:

  1. Check the owner’s manual for model-specific instructions and possible products NOT to use.
  2. Vacuum the seats to remove all particles, avoiding scratching the leather. Use small attachments or an air compressor to get into the crevices.
  3. Spray leather cleaner on the microfiber towel. Wipe the seats to remove surface dirt and oils.
  4. Spray cleaner onto the seats and gently scrub the surface with the brush.
  5. If you have perforated leather seats, spray onto the brush before applying to the seats
  6. Wipe the seats with a clean and dry microfiber towel.

How to Clean Fabric Car Seats

Supplies:

  1. Cleaning solution spray designed for fabric (NOT an all-purpose cleaner)
  2. Interior brush (make sure they have soft or medium stiff bristles)
  3. Microfiber towels
  4. Ample time for the seats to air dry

Instructions:

  1. Vacuum the seats to remove all particles and hair.
  2. If you have a pet, you might need to do a second wipe down with a special pet hair removal tool.
  3. Ensure the doors and windows are open for ventilation
  4. Spray the cleaning solution onto the desired area, but avoid saturating the fabric to prevent mildew issues.
  5. Use the interior brush to massage the cleaning solution into the fabric.
  6. A suds appear, wipe them away with the microfiber towel. If the fabric dries before you do this, the dirt will be pulled back into the fibers.
  7. Continue steps 4-6 until the area is clean, then move on to the next section.
  8. Vacuum the seats after cleaning to speed up the drying process. Let the seats finish drying before using the car.

Alternatives to Fabric Cleaner

  1. Laundry Detergent: Mix detergent with hot water.
    1. Apply the solution with a spray bottle or sponge. Then use cold water on a microfiber cloth to scrub and wipe the dirt away.
  2. Vinegar: Mix 1 cup of vinegar, a few drops of dish soap, and a gallon of hot water.
    1. Dab onto the seats and scrubbed with a brush. Use clean water and a microfiber towel to remove the dirt and suds.
  3. Baking Soda: Mix ¼ cup of baking soda and 1 cup of warm water.
    1. Use with a toothbrush to scrub out tough stains. After scrubbing, let sit for 30 minutes, then blot away the stain with a clean cloth or towel.
  4. Club Soda: Put club soda in a spray bottle.
    1. Spray a light layer of club soda to the fabric, using a soft-bristle brush to scrub out the stains. Wipe away dirt as it comes to the surface.
