Leather seats and interiors have long been the hallmark of luxury for vehicles. But with the majority of cars now having the option of leather seats, one of the things we very often get asked about is, how to clean leather car seats.
It’s not just about maintaining their classy appearance and the superior comfort they provide us whilst traveling. Leather has a distinctive texture and even smell that can never be surpassed by most synthetic materials.
They do however require a little more looking after to keep them looking clean and feeling pliable throughout the years. Leather is an organic material and it has a tough life when used on our seats.
Without realising it we are quite demanding with daily stresses and occasional accidents. Before we know it we have left an unsightly scuff across the seat. Our cosmetics products also like marking our leather too. Or even more horrifying, when new jeans transfer ink marks onto pale cream seats!
Fortunately, with careful treatment, their problems can be easily rectified. With the proper care we can slow (or even reverse) the aging progress and provide more protection. Yet considering how to clean leather car seats often fills heads with conflict and confusion, plus there are so many products available.
With our sensitive leather seats on the line we don’t want to risk causing more harm than good. We want answers to a few simple questions without burying ourselves in opinion and misinformation.
