Leather car seats are a sign of luxury and also an indication that you are doing well in life. If you think about it, not many people can afford leather sofas in their home let alone in their cars as a luxury item. Therefore, in order to upkeep the interior of your car and to keep the passengers impressed, one must clean and care for leather car seats properly.
Leather surfaces are just like beautiful, delicate skin. Leather must be carefully cleansed before it can be properly conditioned. As leather ages, it loses essential protectants infused into the leather during the manufacturing process. That leaves the leather susceptible to dirt, oils, and UV damage. To keep leather looking and feeling its best, you must first clean it and then replace the lost moisture and protection.
How to Prolong the life of your car’s leather interior:
Block the sunlight. Whenever you are not driving, or your car is going to be in direct sunlight, place a sun blocker in your windshield.
Buy protection. Leather conditioners like Armorall or Lane’s Liquid Leather can be purchased on Concorde or on eBay. Saddle soap and conditioners, while good for your baseball glove or go-go boots, are not to be used on automotive leather of any kind. The soap contains alkalis, which can permanently damage the material in your seats. Household detergents and cleaners can damage leather as well. Always use only a product designed for the type of leather your vehicle has.
While cleaning and conditioning your interior be sure not to leave any tools or sharp objects in your pockets that could put a hole in your seats and your good time. As with any cleaner, conditioner or chemical that involves the potential for ruining something really expensive, always test first in a small, inconspicuous area.
With a little time and the right chemicals, your vehicle’s leather will remain soft, supple, and inviting for years to come! For the next topic, how to repair leather car seats! So better subscribe now to get the latest insights sent free to your inbox!
