Leather seats are the true mark of a luxury vehicle. Comfortable, stylish, sleek and more, when your interior is outfitted with premium leather you feel like a star. While it’s hard to beat the comfort of supple leather seats, some of the stardust can start to wear off when you notice your once pristine leather seats are showing some wear.

It’s true, leather seats do require some regular TLC to maintain their luxurious appearance. That does not mean however, that you have to settle for subpar cloth seats. Jaguar never settles, and neither should you.

Proper maintenance for your leather seats can be accomplished in three easy steps. These steps can be done daily, weekly or monthly to ensure your interior stays in top condition. While a few extra steps may seem like a hassle the increased return you will see on your car’s trade-in and resale value are well worth it.

Supplies Needed

  • Water-based leather cleaner
  • Damp cloth
  • Microfiber towel
  • Leather and vinyl brush
  • Water-based leather conditioner

Supplies To Avoid

  • Petroleum, silicone, gloss or oil-based products

Step One

Wipe down all of your seats and leather surfaces. Use a damp cloth to remove and dirt, grease or debris. The leather cleaner will work much better if you start with a slightly damp surface.

Step Two

Use a non-abrasive leather cleaner to deep clean. Always test the cleaner in a small area first before applying to the entire seat. Be sure to focus on one seat at a time and use an application pad or leather brush. When you are finished with a seat wipe it clean with a soft cloth.

Step Three

After you have cleaned your seats it is vital to protect your seats with a leather conditioner. Conditioning the leather keeps seats soft and supple and prevents fading and cracking. Apply the condition to the seats with a soft cloth. Old white shirts work great as rags for this step. For extra protection when traveling with car seats or pet crates, lay a towel or blanket on top of the seat.
