How to Clean Leather Car Seats

Before you begin, you’ll want to make sure you have all the materials you need to get the job done. You should be able to find all these materials at your local department store near Portage.

Things you’ll need:

  1. Leather cleaner, saddle soap, or mild leather soap
  2. Microfiber towels
  3. Soft-bristled garment brush


  1. Check your owner’s manual to see if there are any special requirements for cleaning your seats.
  2. Vacuum your seats to remove any surface debris, making sure to not scratch the leather. For hard-to-get spots, you can use compressed air to blow particles out.
  3. Spray your seats down with leather cleaner and wipe down with the leather cleaner of your choice.
  4. Gently scrub the surface with the brush and wipe away suds.
  5. Clean and dry microfiber towel.
  6. Repeat steps 3, 4, and 5 until cleaned to your satisfaction.
