How To Condition The Leather Seats in Your Car
There is nothing more heartbreaking than seeing a slick luxury car with an immaculate exterior, and then opening up the door and seeing an interior that’s in poor condition. It’s a real travesty because it only takes a few steps to maintain the beauty of your car’s interior. Leather seats especially. Left without maintenance, leather seats can become hard, cracked, and worn because over time leather loses its essential oils and UV protectants. Heat is especially rough on natural leather cowhide seating. Thankfully, conditioning and protecting your leather seats couldn’t be easier.
The steps that need to be taken to condition the leather seats in your car are quite simple, so the question is not really how to condition leather seats, but how often and with what products. Let’s delve a bit deeper into conditioning your seats so that you can keep them looking great all year round.
One of the first things that you should do is set up a quarterly or monthly cleaning routine to maintain your vehicle’s interior. If you get in a routine, it’s much easier to keep the seats looking great, as they receive constant care and don’t ever get forgotten. Keeping a schedule is actually quite simple, especially if you already have all of the products in your garage, as you can condition your leather seats in an afternoon and don’t have to worry about running to the store.
Each time you clean your vehicle’s interior, condition the leather seats using a product free of petroleum-based solvents, silicone, or gloss agents. Be sure to only use products made specially for natural leather seating and not vinyl cleaners. The best products for the health of your car’s leather is water-based and pH-balanced to penetrate deep into the pores of the leather and keep it soft and supple.
The cleaning process is very straightforward. Clean your seats first with a leather cleaner and then protect them with a leather conditioner. Great leather conditioning products really do all the work for you. It’s really just that easy. As we said, the only difficult part of the process is setting and keeping a routine, as once you give the interior consistent maintenance, your vehicle will be a stunner on the inside and out.
