If you have leather seats in your car, you want to make sure you can keep them clean and looking as good as new. Leather seats are durable, but you will still want to properly care for them — failing to do so can ruin them completely. Here’s how to keep your leather in like-new condition:
Check the Leather Type
What type of leather do you have in your car? Different models feature different styles of leather, so when you know the type of leather in your car, you can better care for it. If your seats have been treated with protectants, they are easier to care for but may not absorb leather conditioning products as easily, which is one reason why we always suggest a spot test first. With use, the manufacturer-applied protective layer will begin to break down.
Use the Right Products
Don’t use silicone-based products or anything containing wax. Avoid acids, too, as they can make leather rough. Leather Honey Leather Cleaner and Leather Conditioner will serve all your needs when caring for your vehicle’s leather seats.
After diluting Leather Honey Leather Cleaner as directed on the bottle, spray the leather surface, and wait a few minutes before using a lint-free cloth to gently rub the product into the leather.
Allow to Dry
Once cleaned, your vehicle’s leather seats need to dry thoroughly before being conditioned. Spot test Leather Honey Leather Conditioner in a discreet area, then use a new lint-free cloth or brush to lightly apply the conditioner to the seats in a thin, even coat. Allow the conditioner to dry for two hours – and up to 24 – before gently buffing away any excess.
Leather seats are an upgrade — and even a luxury — in some cars, so take the time to care for them properly. There is no better way to accomplish that than with Leather Honey leather care products.
