Automotive Leather Cleaning Tips: How Do I Clean My Seats?

Leather care is an important part of vehicle maintenance. Proper leather cleaning and conditioning will not only maintain the look of your seats, but also the durability and comfort! Below, you’ll find a few quick tips from The Seat Shop on how to care for your leather seats.

1. Cleaning

Firstly, you’ll want to stay away from cleaning solutions with harsh chemicals. However, if it’s been a while since you’ve cleaned your seats, you’ll need to roll up your sleeves and do some work. For a deep clean, we recommend Chamberlain’s Straight Cleaner #2. This product permeates leather with natural, non-alkaline cleaning agents and alcohols, gently removing substances that damage leather. Remember, this is just a cleaning product, so don’t forget to condition the leather afterward!

2. Conditioning

Conditioning is going to keep your leather soft. Without regular conditioning, the leather will dry out, crease and crack. Chamberlain’s Auto Refreshener #4 is the perfect solution to this problem. It contains a cleaner, so you can also use it on a regular basis! In addition, it will condition the leather with nutrients and UV protectants. It can be used on both leather and vinyl, and will go a long way toward extending the life of your seats!


Below, you’ll find a quick video that demonstrates the capability of Chamberlain’s products.

Customer Review – Paul V.

To The Seat Shop –

Wanted to drop you a brief note of thanks to your team at The Seat Shop.
The workmanship from the skilled folks is extraordinary. Both seat bases are like new yet they blend in nicely with the original seat backs.

Thanks also for suggesting new foam for driver’s seat, that upgrade was the right call.

To my wife’s chagrin – the new seats have added years to the vehicle. I see no reason now to part ways with it.

Thanks again to your team – I’ll be sure to come back to you for other projects.

Back Pain?

Does your back hurt? Replacing an old foam cushion can really improve posture and help relieve back pain caused from a worn out support cushion. Check out this awesome review from Rick Blalock at Active Family Chiropracticlower-back-pain1ic. – “As a chiropractor, I highly recommend that you replace your worn out seat foam as it will cause unleveling in the pelvis and lower back. I replaced my Navigator’s seat foam today and am blown away at how horrible the old seat was. I knew it was bad, but it’s worth every penny for your spine… and your seat cover too..”

Thanks Rick for your awesome review and advice to our customers. Check out our products at or click here

Worried About Your Seats Matching? Don’t…

Factory Match GuaranteeBeforeAfter_Homepage_Pic_2_5
At The Seat Shop all of our leather seat covers are guaranteed to match the original color pallet of the vehicle’s OEM interior.

NOTE!! Please watch our cleaning video and follow those instructions in order to ensure a good color match. Leather acquires a shine or sheen to it over time do to human oils, dirt, etc. Leather naturally has a “flat mat” finish. If you do not clean your OEM seats, they will not match a brand new leather seat cover.

After you clean your seats, if you are unhappy with the color match for any reason, please give us a call. We will do whatever we can to troubleshoot the problem and come to a resolution.

Just know that you are never stuck with a product from our company that you don’t like. You are always welcome to return your cover to us for a refund according to our return policy.
