How to Clean Car Seats

Mazda3 Hatchback Leather Seating

Sarasota drivers love leather car seats. AFter all, they offer incredible comfortable and sleek design. But not many people know how to properly clean leather seats. Cox Mazda of Bradenton wants to help you keep your new Mazda car, crossover, or SUV looking its best. So we give you some easy instructions below for cleaning leather seats, and even explain how to clean car seats that aren’t leather.

How to Clean Leather Car Seats

We’ve found that many Tampa drivers think they know how to clean car seats, but cleaning leather seats is a little more complicated. For instance, does your car come with perforated leather? You don’t want any cleaners or liquids to settle in those holes. So don’t spray the seats directly. Spray into your microfiber cleaning cloth instead of spraying directly onto the seating surface.

If your seats aren’t perforated, you can spray directly on them, as long as the cleaner does not discolor them. You’ll want to test a small patch first. We explain how in the steps below.

Follow these instructions on how to clean leather seats

  • Gather all the supplies you’ll need
    • A vacuum cleaner
    • Cleaner that is suitable for leather, such as saddle soap
    • Two microfiber cloths or a brush with soft bristles
    • Leather conditioner
  • Remove any dirt and debris with a vacuum, while being careful not rub any dirt in
  • Apply the cleaner to a small spot on the seat that can’t be readily seen. Do not use the cleaner if it discolors the seat
  • Gently apply the cleaner with your cloth or brush
  • Apply the leather conditioner
Hand wiping leather seats with a microfiber cloth

How to Clean Car Seats Made of Cloth or Other Material

Cleaning seats made of cloth or even vinyl is easier than cleaning leather seats. Sometimes a simple vacuuming will do. But you will want to clean the seats on a regular basis to prevent soil from setting in too deeply. Follow these instructions on to clean car seats:

  • Vacuum any dirt or debris
  • Gently apply commercial cleaner for car seats
  • Wipe up any access cleaner
