Cleaning Leather Car Seats

If you've opted for leather car seats, you've probably spent more to get them, and that means you want to protect that investment. The easiest method could simply be to purchase a leather cleaner and use that. However, not all products are created equal, and some chemicals found in them can change the color and texture of the seats.A natural home remedy could be less expensive and more effective in keeping your seats clean, healthy and looking new.If your leather seat is stained (or just for general cleaning):

1. Dust some talcum powder or corn starch on grease stains on the leather and let it sit overnight. Either will absorb all grease from a leather stain. The next morning, simply wipe the powder off with a damp cloth.

2. Mix three parts vinegar to one part hot water. Dampen a cloth in the solution and rub over the stain vigorously for a few minutes. This should make a big different in the intensity of the stain.

3. Pour a few drops of olive oil on a dry cloth. Rub over the seats. This will eliminate most stains, remove dust and dirt, and provide a nice shine to the seat.

4. If the stain is ink, spray with hair spray, let sit for a few minutes and wipe with a dry cloth.

NEVER use acidic cleaning solutions like glass or kitchen cleaners on leather. They will damage the texture of the seats.
