Cleaning Cloth and Leather Seats

Leather Seats

Cleaning the inside of your car is just as important as cleaning the exterior. Sure, the body is the first impression of your car, but you and the passengers spend time inside the vehicle and might as well have it clean and with a pleasant smell.

Regardless of the material of the seats, they need to be cleaned. They can easily absorb sweat and skin oil if they are cloth, and the leather seats can quickly get dirt stuck or be scratched.

If you are interested in properly cleaning your seats, sit back, relax, and enjoy the blog.

What do I need?

The materials you need are budget-friendly and easy to find. All you need is a powerful vacuum, a brush set, a few microfiber towels, carpet cleaner, some leather, vinyl cleaner, and conditioner.

Because you will be properly cleaning the seats, you’ll need to take them out of the vehicle, but before you do that, disconnect the negative battery.

Consider that nowadays, most seats have airbags, so avoid any accidents or problems by disconnecting the battery cable 20 minutes before removing the seats.

Now you are ready to begin.


Cloth Seats

Start by vacuuming the seats to remove all dirt. If you are having trouble with a specific part, brush it while you keep vacuuming. And for any hard-to-remove stains, spray some warm soapy water and brush, then wipe it with a clean microfiber towel.

Spray the carpet cleaner, brush the seat in different directions, then just grab a microfiber towel and remove the cleanser.

For the seat’s plastic side, grab some interior detailer, spray it on a microfiber towel, and wipe the sides.

Next, clean would be the metal brackets that connect the seat to the car. For that, just spray some warm soapy water, brush everything with a small brush (a toothbrush works just fine), and wipe it with a towel.

The last part of cleaning would be the seatbelt.

Pull it out and use a clamp to prevent it from retracting. Grab your carpet cleaner and a microfiber towel, saturate the towel and run it along the seatbelt. Finish with a clean microfiber towel and wipe the seat belt.

After you are done, leave the seat belt out and let it dry.

Leather Seats

Start by vacuuming the seats to remove any loose dirt stuck, and do the same trick with the brush. Use it on the hard-to-remove parts. Grab the leather and vinyl cleaner, spray it on a microfiber towel, wipe the seats, and let it dry.

There’s an extra step if you want to do it.

If you have a steamer blow some steam on the seats before applying the leather and vinyl cleaner, this will open the leather pores and allow the cleaning products to do a better job.

Now is the time for the conditioner. Apply some conditioner to a brush and brush the seat’s surface, then just grab a microfiber towel and wipe the conditioner off.
