Leather Seat Care Basics

Leather is a strong and durable material, but it needs regular cleaning and conditioning to look its very best. Leather seat care isn’t complicated and it doesn’t take long to complete, the tough part is remembering to stick to your schedule! Here are the basics of leather seat care:

  • Vacuum: Get rid of debris and loose matter by vacuuming all the crevices and folds of your seats.
  • Clean: Pick up a pH-neutral cleaning solution that is made specifically for leather car seats, along with a microfiber cloth and soft brush. If you need recommendations, swing by the service department!
  • Condition: Conditioning moisturizes the leather to avoid cracks and dullness. Be sure to grab a leather-specific conditioner and apply with a fresh microfiber.
  • Protect: Keep your car out of the sun to prevent premature aging and photodamage, and you’ll be rewarded with great results.

Leather Seat Care Supplies

Now you know how to clean leather car seats in Bronx, but do you have the proper supplies to get to work? You might have suitable microfibers in your garage already, but most car care supplies are formulated specifically for automotives.
