Cleaning Leather Car Seat

Buying a luxury new Mercedes-Benz vehicle with leather seats is an excellent way to make your Oakwood drives more comfortable. They feel more luxurious than cloth, but they do need more care to keep the leather upholstery looking top-notch. Learn about leather seat care and how to clean leather car seats in this handy guide from the service experts at Mercedes-Benz of Centerville.

Tips on How to Clean Leather Car Seats

Get your leather car seats looking brand new by following these simple steps:

  1. First, vacuum the crevices of your seats to remove any dust, dirt, or debris. 
  2. Once it’s all removed, apply a pH-neutral cleaning solution to your upholstery while making sure you don’t get any liquid cleaner into any perforations. 
  3. Use a microfiber cloth and soft-bristled brush to gently clean the leather upholstery. 
  4. With your seats cleaned, apply an approved leather conditioner to your seats, and gently work in using a clean microfiber cloth. Let the conditioner dry and then buff in with another clean microfiber cloth. Using a leather conditioner helps keep your seats supple and avoid cracking. 

What Cleaning Products Should Be Used?

It’s recommended to use a colorless, damp rag to lightly dust your car seats at your Springboro-area home. To get a thorough wash, use warm water with a little soap or a specially made leather cleaner to wipe the seats down. There are a few things to avoid using on your seats, such as:

  • Sharp objects that may scratch
  • Household cleaner
  • Dark cloths
  • Detergents
  • Furniture polish

Additional Leather Care Tips

  1. Having a travel bottle of leather cleaning solution and clean microfiber cloths on hand in your vehicle helps keep your seats clean of dust, spills, and debris while on the go around Oakwood. 
  2. If you have access to a garage, it’s best to store your vehicle there to avoid extreme temperatures. 
  3. When out running errands in Bellbrook, watch out for shaded parking spots. This is the best place to park since the shade prevents any damage and sun bleaching.
