How to Care For Your Leather Car Seats

Having leather car seats is a luxury that adds a significant value to your car. Car owners, who recognize this and appreciate their leather seats, do what they can to keep them clean and conditioned.

Leather car seats should be cleaned on a regular basis. A good rule of thumb is to clean your interior as often as you wash the outside of your car. Unlike an exterior car wash, you do not need a hose, bucket and loads of soap. Cleaning leather is a very simple process and the little time you spend on it really goes a long way in terms of retaining the sleek appearance of your car’s interior.

Leather Conditioner & Cleaner for Automobile Upholstery

The first step to cleaning your leather car seats is to vacuum. Use the smaller vacuum nozzle to suck up any dirt or crumbs that have lodged into the cracks of the seats. Once all of the loose particles are gone, begin the leather cleaning process. 

Always do a quick test of the leather cleaner on a small and inconspicuous area of the leather first. Then apply the leather cleaner to your seats, either by dipping a lint-free cloth into the cleaning solution and wiping down your seats, or by spraying the cleaner onto your seats and then wiping with a cloth. Concentrate on heavily soiled areas. 

Once the leather is completely dry, you're ready to condition. Like the cleaner, you’ll want to test Leather Honey Leather Conditioner in a discreet area first – Leather Honey is designed to penetrate the pores of the leather. Some car manufacturers apply a protective barrier on leather seats, preventing Leather Honey and other leather conditioners from penetrating until that barrier breaks down. If you apply Leather Honey to a test spot and it doesn’t absorb, your seats are likely protected with a synthetic coating. 

If your test area absorbs, you are ready to apply a thin, even coat all over the leather seats. Almost instantly, you will notice the leather’s deeper color and fresh gloss. Allow the leather to dry completely, which can take up to 24 hours. 

If you own something valuable, such as a car with leather interior, it is important to take care of it. Leather is susceptible to staining and wear and tear. By keeping it clean and regularly conditioned, it will keep its value for a longer period of time. 

I bought a 2001 BMW with a leather interior and the seat edges were very hard and beginning to crack. After liberally applying your product to them the result is amazing: the seats are soft, the cracks have more or less disappeared and the leather’s black color looks new.”
