How often should you condition your leather seats?
Determine what you’re working with
Before we dive into cleaning, the first thing to keep in mind is that there is a distinct difference between leather and leatherette upholstery. The cleaning product you choose depends on the type of material you are working with. Leather is animal hide or skin while leatherette is synthetic and is made from plastic.
Choose the right product
You will want to choose a product made specifically for leather. There are many great products on the market that condition and clean and that will deliver the deep conditioning that your leather seats need to keep looking great. It should have no petroleum-based solvents or silicone, because these minerals don’t penetrate the pores of the leather like you need it to. Have leatherette seats? Petroleum-based products work great.
Make an appointment
It’s important to condition your leather seats a few times a year. The easiest way to remember to do this is to make an appointment on your calendar. Routine cleaning and conditioning is absolutely necessary and helps prevent your leather seats from drying out and cracking.
