Proper leather seat care requires a little more attention than cloth, but with these service tips from Mercedes-Benz of Modesto, you’ll be cruising through Merced in total comfort.

Tips on How to Clean Leather Car Seats

Keep your leather car seats clean in Stockton when you follow these simple steps:

  1. Start by vacuuming your seat crevices, removing any dirt, dust, or debris.
  2. Once vacuumed, apply a pH-neutral cleaning solution to your upholstery. Avoid spilling any liquid cleaner into seat perforations.
  3. Use a microfiber cloth and soft-bristled brush to gently clean the leather upholstery.
  4. Apply an approved leather conditioner to your seats, gently working in with a clean microfiber cloth. Leather conditioner helps keep seats supple regardless of conditions in Stanislaus, avoiding the cracking that can occur. Let the conditioner dry, then buff in with a fresh microfiber cloth.

What Cleaning Products Should Be Used?

Leather car seats need a gentle touch, so use a colorless, damp rag to lightly dust and clean your seats. For specific product recommendations, check your owner’s manual, or contact the service team at Mercedes-Benz of Modesto for help.

No matter which cleansers you use, be sure to avoid using:

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

Additional Leather Care Tips

When you’re on the go in Modesto, you can still be mindful of leather car seat care. Park your Mercedes-Benz in a garage to keep the interior temperature of your vehicle as moderate as possible, or if there’s no garage available, try parking under a shady tree or overhang to prevent sun bleaching and damage.

We also suggest keeping a travel bottle of leather cleaning solution and clean microfiber cloths in your glove compartment to keep your seats clean of dust and debris. Ward off stains by cleaning up spills when they happen, and keep your Mercedes-Benz E Class interior looking sharp.
