Car Leather Interior Care

Car Leather Interior

The skin consists of thousands and thousands of fibers intertwined with permeable pores, such as the skin. Proper maintenance begins with fiber cleaning. Cleaning removes abrasives that destroy fiber and pores that clog dirt and dust, which eventually destroy the skin and give it a less pleasant texture and appearance. If you have pets, you may want to invest in animal pads or seat covers for decoration.

You will also want to look for a good reflective sunscreen.

With regular cleaning and conditioning, the leather interior will last a lifetime. The skin is hard and resistant to abuse. The main task is to determine the type of skin you are in and then choose cleaning products and conditioners designed specifically for this task. Traditional leather interiors are made of 100% leather, and some modern interiors are covered in leather with elastic vinyl. A quick test to determine what type you have is to use a small amount of cold, clean water. Traditional leather absorbs water, while vinyl coated leather repels it. In any case, a few drops of water will not damage your interior.

The next step is to identify the right cleansers and conditioners for your skin. Soaps and saddle conditioners, although good for your baseball or go-go glove, should not be used on any car leather. The soap contains alkalis that can damage the material in your area. Household cleaning and washing products can also damage the skin. Always use only the best leather conditioner for cars.

Eliminating harmful deposits of oil and mud is an important first step. Always use a clean, soft cloth to avoid damage or accidental removal of skin paint. Persistent dirt trapped in cracks may require the use of an upholstery brush. Dirt and dirt should be removed before conditioning the skin, as you do not want to constantly push these impurities into the pores.

The next step, perhaps even more important, is conditioning. Nourishes and moisturizes to lubricate the individual fibers, preventing them from becoming brittle and dry. It replaces the essential oils that evaporate. How can you say good air conditioning? A good air conditioner will provide UV protection. Like human skin, ultraviolet rays quickly cause skin wear and significantly reduce their lifespan. A good conditioner will be absorbed through the skin, will not sit on the surface or leave marks. The surface should not be oily after application. The best air conditioners have a balanced pH, have dirt and water repellents to protect against accidents.


When cleaning and conditioning your interior, do not leave tools or sharp objects in pockets that can poke a hole in your seats and have a good time. As with any cleaning agent, conditioner or chemical that can spoil something really expensive, always try first in a small and discreet place.
