When Buford-area shoppers purchase a new Toyota, it’s an exciting investment. What’s more exciting for many buyers is getting a vehicle with leather seats. Leather seats feel more luxurious than cloth, and they add something special to the vehicle, but they do require additional care to keep the leather in great condition. Make sure you are using proper leather seat care with these handy tips from Beaver Toyota of Cumming.

Tips on How to Clean Leather Car Seats

Beaver Toyota of Cumming has provided simple steps to get your high-quality leather car seats clean and looking brand new again:

  1. First, you will want to vacuum the crevices of your seats to remove any dust, dirt, or debris.
  2. Once the debris has been removed,apply a pH-neutral cleaning solution to your upholstery, making sure to avoid getting any liquid cleaner into any perforations.
  3. Use a microfiber cloth and soft-bristled brush to gently clean the leather upholstery.
  4. Once the seats are clean, go ahead and 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 will help keep your seats supple and avoid cracking.

What Cleaning Products Should Be Used?

It’s recommended that you use a colorless, simple damp rag to lightly dust your car seats in Alpharetta. If you would prefer a more thorough wash, use warm water with a bit of soap or a specially made leather cleaner to wipe down the seats. Refer to your owner’s manual for additional recommendations. No matter which cleaner you pick, there are things you should avoid using on your seats, which includes:

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

Additional Leather Care Tips

  1. Keep a travel bottle of leather cleaning solution and clean microfiber cloths on hand in your vehicle. This helps to keep your seats clean of dust, spills, and debris while on the go around Johns Creek.
  2. If you have access to a garage, that can be used to store your vehicle as much as possible. Avoiding extreme temperatures can help preserve the life of your leather.
  3. When out running errands around the Buford and Alpharetta areas, be on the lookout for shaded parking spots. Parking in the shade can prevent sun bleaching and damage.
