How to Clean Leather Car Seats


New Mercedes-Benz models are known for their premium materials, such as supple leather seating and wood trim. While leather seats feel more luxurious than cloth, they do require more care to keep the upholstery in excellent condition. Follow these tips from Mercedes-Benz Burlington to make sure your leather seats are properly cared for.

How Do You Keep Leather Seats in Good Condition? 

  • Vacuum Your Seats: To remove any dust, dirt, or debris, take the time to vacuum the crevices of your seats.
  • Clean Your Seats: Use a microfiber cloth and soft-bristled brush, along with a pH-neutral cleaning solution, to gently clean the leather upholstery. Make sure you don’t get any liquid cleaner into perforated seats.
  • Condition Your Seats: Rub a leather conditioner into the seats using a new microfiber cloth. 
  • Protect the Leather: Keep your vehicle out of the sun by parking under a tree or in a garage in Oakville to help protect the leather.

What Cleaning Products Should Be Used?

To lightly dust your car seats in Milton, use a colorless, simple damp rag. If they need a more thorough wash, you can use warm water with a bit of soap or a specially made leather cleaner to wipe down the seats. Your owner’s manual may have additional recommendations. You can also research what the best type of leather conditioner is for Mercedes-Benz seats.

When it comes to leather seat care, there are certain products you need to stay away from as they can cause harm to your leather immediately or over time: 

  • Sharp objects that may scratch
  • Household cleaner
  • Dark cloths
  • Detergents
  • Furniture polish
