Supplies You'll Need

Proper leather seat care begins by having the right materials for the job, and you may already have many of the things you'll need in your cabinet or garage. You may want to refer to your vehicle's owner manual to see if they offer any recommendations on how to clean leather seats. You'll need the following items for the job: 

  • Leather Cleaning Agent
  • Leather Conditioning Agent
  • Microfiber Towels
  • Soft-Bristled Brush
  • Sponge
  • Vacuum

Step 1: Prep and Wipe Seat Leather

First, you have to vacuum your seats to remove any dust, dirt, or debris caught in between the seats that can scratch or stain your leather cloth seats. Once you've given your seats a thorough vacuum, spray a leather cleaning agent onto a microfiber cloth and wipe away any remaining dirt or dust particles in a slow, circular motion.

Step 2: Brush and Clean

Next, as you apply the cleaning agent and it is still wet on the leather, softly brush the leather with a bristled brush as this will provide a deeper clean to the leather. If you notice and dirt or discoloration appear on the surface, simply wipe it away with a microfiber cloth.

Step 3: Dry and Condition

Lastly, you'll want to condition the leather to ensure the cleansing agents stay within the leather to protect it from damage and offer a better textured quality. Simply apply a small amount of conditioner to a microfiber cloth or sponge and then you can wipe your seats in a circular wiping motion. Be sure not to apply too much conditioner as this can grease your seats, remember to park your car in a garage or shady place to let your conditioner set before you get back in.
