How to Keep Your Leather Car Seats Looking Great

Leather can be a luxury when it comes to the interior of your car, and this means it's important to treat your leather seats well. Your leather car seats can look great for years, but you have to take care of the leather to make sure it doesn't fade or crack. The leather will even get softer over time, increasing the comfort level of your leather seats.

Use a Vacuum to Remove Debris

When you try to sweep off your leather seats, you run the risk of scratching the leather. Vacuum the seats to remove any dirt, especially debris that has fallen through the cracks. Use a brush attachment on the vacuum, and be mindful of scratching any of the debris on the leather itself. To avoid dirt buildup, use a vacuum on your leather seats about once a month to keep your seats looking great.

Wipe Down Your Seats With a Slightly Wet Towel

Microfiber cloths are perfect for wiping down your leather seats. If you want to use a cleaner, make an investment in a more expensive leather cleaner. If you use harsh chemicals to clean your leather seats, this is going to ruin the leather over time. When you use a leather cleaner that is inexpensive, it can contain chemicals that are not useful to your leather in the long run. You have to wipe down your leather seats with a damp cloth before you try to condition the leather for maximum effectiveness.

Use Conditioner on Your Leather Seats that is High-Quality

A conditioner for your leather seats is necessary to avoid cracks and fading. The conditioner should include a sun protection element so that your leather seats don't fade over time. Pay attention that you are using a leather conditioner that is water-based, and use the product according to the directions on the label.

Once you have your leather seats cleaned, you have to protect them from your two-legged and four-legged passengers. If you have children sitting in the back, especially in child protection seats, use a protective pad beneath the seat to keep your leather safe. If there is a spill, wipe it up immediately. Don't allow young children to eat food on leather seats if possible.

If you have pets that go for rides with you, invest in a protective covering for your back seat that is comfortable for your pet. When you have a larger dog, they can wreak havoc with your leather seating simply with their nails. Make sure that your dog has their nails properly groomed, but keep the leather covered whenever you have a pet riding in your car.

Leather can get more comfortable over time. In addition, leather seats are cool in the summer and stay warm in the winter once they are heated up. If you take good care of the leather seats in your car, they can last a very long time. No matter what kind of car you purchase, if leather seats are an option, it could be worth the investment. The leather is durable and will keep the interior of your car looking new if you keep up with basic cleaning of your leather seats.
