How to Clean Car Seats

Cleaning Leather Car Seat

Maybe you’ve spilled your coffee on an early morning commute in Provo or maybe you’ve tracked in mud after an outing. Either way, learning how to clean your car seats is a skill that everyone should have on hand – and Prestman Auto is here to teach you how to do it properly. Whether you have cloth seats or leather, allow our service experts to teach you the tricks of the trade!

How to Clean Cloth Car Seats

Before you get started, we recommend gathering up some supplies. You’ll want to grab your vacuum cleaner for surface debris. Then, pick up a car seat cleaner at our parts department along with some microfibers and brushes for a deep clean. Here is a basic overview of what to do:

  • Vacuum each seat thoroughly. Be sure to get into the crevices, since that’s where a lot of debris tends to accumulate.
  • Spray on your car seat cleaner and follow the directions.
  • Use your brush to work the cleaner into the fabric.
  • Blot and wipe up the fabric with a microfiber.
  • Vacuum and let dry completely.

How to Clean Leather Car Seats

Learning how to clean leather car seats is a little different because leather requires both cleansing and conditioning. You’ll need your vacuum, microfibers, and brush from the previous step. But, you’ll also need to pick up an automotive leather cleaner and conditioner from our parts department.

  • Vacuum the surface of each seat, and get into all the nooks and crannies.
  • Apply your pH-balanced leather cleaner.
  • Use a soft brush to gently scrub away the dirt and debris. Let dry completely.
  • Apply your leather conditioner with a clean microfiber.
  • After the conditioner has soaked in and the leather is dry, buff it with another clean microfiber.
