Car leather care ‘is vitally important’

Failing to use car leather care products periodically will see the seats decline over time.

Automotive writer James Clausen wrote for suite101.com that the supple feel of leather seats comes from various oils which help to protect them and stop the leather from going dry.

However, these oils do not last forever and that is why car leather care products are essential, as they replace the important substances which have been lost.

“The natural oils in a leather seat will evaporate over time. Using an auto leather conditioner will help to replenish the natural oils and keep the seats from drying out and cracking,” Mr Clausen said.

He added that drivers should under no circumstances use products which are designed for use in the home, as they are likely to cause significant damage.

According to a test of car leather care products by Auto Express earlier this year, the Autoglym Leather Cleaner is easy to use and removes stains and marks well.
