How To Clean Leather Car Seats: What To Avoid

Before you begin, it’s a good idea to reference your owner’s manual for specifics on proper leather car seat care. As a general rule of thumb, using a colorless microfiber towel and Ferrari-recommended leather cleaner is highly recommended. Using anything else could result in damage to your seats and the damage may even be irreversible. Some things you’ll likely want to avoid using on your leather seats include:

  • Any household cleaner
  • Furniture polish
  • Harsh detergents
  • Dark towels
  • Sharp objects

How To Clean Leather Car Seats: Step by Step

Once you’ve found a cleaning solution and a towel to keep your Ferrari leather seats in good condition, you’re ready to begin. The process is simple and you can likely even do it in your own Minneapolis, MN garage. However, if you have any questions about what you should be using to clean your leather seats, you can always speak to one of our team members. With that being said, here’s how to clean leather car seats:

  1. Vacuum the crevices of your leather seats to remove any dirt and debris.
  2. Use a pH-neutral or any other recommended cleaning solution and begin wiping down your seats with a clean microfiber towel. Avoid getting any liquid cleaner in the leather perforations.
  3. If needed, you can use a soft bristle brush to get any tougher stains out that the microfiber towel may have missed.
  4. Once your seats are clean, apply a recommended leather conditioner. Steps may vary depending on the exact conditioner you use, but following the necessary steps can help keep your leather seats from wearing prematurely.
  5. Your leather seats should now be nice and clean!

One of the most important leather seat care tips we have is to avoid extreme temperatures when possible. High heat can damage your leather and even the hot summer sun can wear down your leather. If possible, park in a shaded area to keep your leather in excellent condition.
