How to Clean Leather Car Seats

To keep your new, used, or certified pre-owned Acura seats looking their best, Aurora and Highlands Ranch drivers will want to know how to clean leather car seats. Leather car seats are one of the best luxuries of Acura vehicles, but they can be damaged by the sun or worn out over time with dirt, dust, and other particles. Learn proper leather seat care and more from the experts at Mile High Acura. 

How to Clean Leather Car Seats at Home

When you opt for higher packages on popular Acura sedan and SUV models, leather seating will provide a more comfortable and smoother driving experience whether you’re around town or away from home. While you can always leave the leather seat care to the professionals, you can take matters into your own hands and clean your leather seats at home with these items and following these steps: 

Things you’ll need: 

  1. Either leather cleaner, saddle soap, mild leather soap, or a solution that’s one part white vinegar and two parts linseed oil
  2. Microfiber towels
  3. Interior brush (soft-bristled, NOT a stiff carpet brush)


  1. See your owner’s manual for specific model instructions and products that aren’t recommended to use.
  2. Use small attachments to vacuum dirt between seat cracks and remove particles, but be sure to not scratch the leather. 
  3. Spray leather cleaner on a microfiber towel and wipe the seats clean to remove dirt and oils.
  4. Spray cleaner onto the seats (or for perforated leather seats, spray onto the brush to apply to the seats) and gently scrub the surface with the brush.
  5. Wipe the seats with a clean, dry microfiber towel.

What Products Should Be Avoided When Cleaning Leather?

One thing drivers should always be aware of is that leather seat care is much different than cleaning cloth seats, as the leather fabric is much more delicate and easy to stain or rip. This comes right down to the cleaning products you use as certain chemical products can damage your seats even more. Before cleaning your seats at home, avoid using any of these items: 

  1. Sharp or abrasive tools that can scratch the leather surface
  2. Household cleaner and detergents
  3. Dark rags
  4. Furniture polish
