How to Clean Leather Car Seats

Cleaning Supplies You’ll Need:

  1. Leather cleaner, mild leather soap, and some saddle soap; in a pinch, Memphis drivers can use 1 part white vinegar/2 parts linseed oil solution for less effective results.
  2. Microfiber towels
  3. Soft-bristled brush

Step-by-Step Leather Seat Cleaning Instructions:

  1. Scan your owner’s manual to see if the OEM lists any products that you should NOT use. Compare that list with the products you’ve gathered.
  2. Vacuum the seats to remove small particles. Use the smaller vacuum nozzles with an air compressor to clean out cracks.
  3. Spray the cleaner onto the seats and use your soft-bristled brush to gently scrub off grime.
  4. Wipe the seats with a clean and dry microfiber towel.

How to Clean Fabric Car Seats

Cleaning Supplies You’ll Need:

  1. Cleaning solution specifically designed for fabric
  2. Soft or medium bristle brush
  3. Microfiber towels

Step-by-Step Fabric Seat Cleaning Instructions:

  1. Vacuum your seats to remove first, hair, and dust. Use your smaller vacuum nozzles to clean those hard-to-reach cracks and seams.
  2. Open your doors and windows for ventilation.
  3. Lightly spray the cleaning solution on the spot you want to clean. Avoid oversaturation to prevent future issues with mildew.
  4. Use your brush to massage the solution into the seat.
  5. When you see suds, use your microfiber towel to wipe them off of the fabric.
  6. Continue this process until the area is clean, then move on to the next section until you are satisfied with the condition of your seats.
  7. Vacuum the seats one last time, and then let your car sit for 30 minutes with the doors open to let your seats dry.
