Tips on How to Clean Leather Car Seats

Follow the simple steps below to get your leather car seats clean and keep them looking good for years to come on %%taget_city_1%% roads.

  1. Start by vacuuming the crevices of your car seats to remove any dirt, dust, or debris. 
  2. Then, apply a pH-neutral cleaning solution to your leather upholstery. Try to avoid getting any of the liquid cleanser into any of the perforations. 
  3. Gently clean the upholstery using a microfiber cloth and soft-bristled brush.
  4. Once your leather seats are clean, apply a Cadillac-approved leather conditioner to your seats, and then carefully work it in using a clean microfiber cloth. Let the conditioner thoroughly dry and buff it in with another clean microfiber rag. Regularly using a leather conditioner will help keep your leather seats soft and supple and help avoid cracking. 

What Cleaning Products Should You Use?

Use a colorless, simple damp rag to dust your car seats routinely. For a more thorough cleansing, use warm water with a bit of soap or a specially made leather cleaner to wipe down the leather. Don’t forget to check your owner’s manual for specific recommendations. Regardless of which cleaner you select, these are few things you should avoid using on your leather seats: 

  • Sharp objects that may scratch or punch a hole in the upholstery.
  • Household cleaning
  • Furniture polish
  • Dark cloths that may bleed onto the leather
  • Harsh detergents

Additional Tips for Leather Seat Care

  1. It’s a good idea to keep a travel bottle of leather cleaning solution and a clean microfiber cloth in your vehicle to help you keep your leather seats clean of dust and spills while traveling around Great Neck. 
  2. Park your Cadillac in a garage as much as possible. Avoiding extreme temperatures will help preserve the life of your leather. 
  3. When out running errands in the Brooklyn area, be on the lookout for shaded parking spots. Parking in the shade will prevent sun damage and bleaching.
