How To Clean Leather Car Seats

Luxury lovers around Las Vegas and Mesquite adore the upscale look and soft feel of quality leather seating, but without proper maintenance, those gorgeous seats can look pretty shabby faster than you might think. Luckily, learning how to clean leather car seats in your new Acura vehicle is simple with the right tools and techniques. Let’s go into the basics of leather seat care, so you can keep your cabin looking luxe:

DIY Leather Seat Care

Though many North Las Vegas drivers prefer to let our experts at Findlay Acura take care of detailing work, learning how to clean leather car seats is simple enough to complete at home. Just follow these steps to get your interior spotless:

  • Vacuum the seats to get all the dust and debris from every crevice of your seating.
  • Apply a pH-neutral solution to the upholstery to clean the surface. If you have perforated leather, do not get the solution inside of the perforations.
  • Use a soft-bristled brush and microfiber to gently buff the seating. Let dry completely.
  • Add a leather conditioner with a microfiber cloth. When the surface is dry, buff with a new clean microfiber.

Avoiding Leather Damage

Check your owner’s manual to see what products and tools your manufacturer recommends. Generally speaking, you can take care of light cleaning and dusting with just a damp cloth. But keep in mind that your leather seats are delicate, so you’ll want to avoid the following:

  • Sharp objects
  • Household cleansers
  • Dark cloths
  • Furniture polish

Additional Tips and Tricks

  1. Consider keeping some leather cleaning solution and microfiber cloths in your cabin to take care of any unexpected messes – especially if you’re heading to an outdoor adventure in Henderson!
  2. Avoid extreme temperatures to help prolong the life of your leather. For example, park in a garage when possible instead of on the street.
  3. Avoid UV light damage when possible to prevent sun bleaching and damage. Accessories like sunshades can help reduce light exposure in your cabin.
