If you have a vehicle with a leather interior, you know the struggle to keep the leather clean and looking brand new. Here a few suggestions to keep that interior looking like new.

The first step is to vacuum your interior from the top to the bottom, meaning start with the tops of the seats and dash and work your way downward to the floorboards. Your vacuum’s brush will be perfect for this task. Keeping the interior of your vehicle clean of dust, dirt, and hair will keep your leather staying fresh.

Next, dampen a sponge or soft cloth with water and gently wipe down the leather interior. Make sure to do this in small section and dry each section with a lint-free cloth.

Quality leather cleaners and conditioners are a must to keep your leather looking good and in prime condition. Some cleaners and conditioners foam up and require you to wait a couple minutes before cleaning it off the leather and some products require you to put the cleaner on the cloth, make sure to read the directions carefully.

Finally, apply a high quality leather sealant which will keep your leather from aging and drying out. Leather sealants also provide a protective layer that repels some stains.
