How to Clean Car Seats the Right Way

Our Conway customers love to keep their cars clean. And the service team at Beach Ford of Myrtle Beach loves to help them do that. One of the things our customers are curious about, though, is how to clean car seats. Seats can be tricky, especially if they are leather. That’s why we’ve put together this handy cleaning guide that even includes specific instructions on how to clean leather car seats.

How to Clean Car Seats Covered with Fabric

Follow these steps on how to clean car seats if your seats are fabric:

  • Remove all the dirt and debris from your seats with a vacuum.
  • Lightly (don’t saturate) spray down the seats with a cleaner that is designed specifically for fabric. Do not use a regular household cleaner.
  • Work the cleaning solution into the fabric with a brush.
  • Wipe any suds away with a microfiber cloth. Make sure to do this before the fabric dries.
  • Vacuum the seats again, this time to help the seats dry more quickly.
  • Let the seats dry completely before using them.

How to Clean Leather Car Seats

Leather seats can be difficult to clean. But many of our Murrells Inlet customers have managed just fine when following these steps on how to clean leather car seats:

  • Consult your owner’s manual for products to avoid using.
  • Use a vacuum to clean off all dirt and debris from the seats, including those crevices that are hard to reach.
  • Spray cleaner on a microfiber towel and wipe down the seats. Use only leather cleaner, saddle soap, or mild soap for this.
  • Gently scrub the cleaner into the seats for stubborn dirt or soiling.
  • Thoroughly dry the seats using a clean microfiber towel.
