How to Protect & Clean Your Car’s Leather Interior During Summer

Leather car interiors are upscale, cool and comfortable. However, they also require additional TLC. Plenty of attention is required, or that sleek leather interior will be faded, cracked, and dull. Ezy Car Wreckers, the Car Removals Adelaide offers the following suggestions to help protect your car’s leather interior from natural wear and tear.

Car Interior Leather Care

Vacuum – Vacuuming the interior of your car frequently, including its leather will help to prevent unnecessary wear from dirt, food particles and debris.  Weekly vacuuming of the car, or when the bag of chips falls, will help to prolong the life of your leather interior. When vacuuming, use a vacuum hose and attachment to easily get to dirt and particles. Be cautious when vacuuming as you do not want to scratch the leather of the car. Once all dirt is removed from the surface, clean the leather with your microfiber towel with cleaner. A soft bristled brush designed for leather can be used for a deep clean. Once the seats are wiped clean, use a clean and dry microfiber cloth to wipe up the cleaning solution and dampness from the seats.

Never Use Paper Towels to Clean Your Car’s Leather Interior

While paper towels may be handy, they are not healthy for leather interiors. Using the right type of material when cleaning your leather is important. Typically, the upholstery cleaner includes an applicator. If there is no applicator included with the cleaner, shred a clean T-shirt and use it to apply the cleaner. You want a soft cotton that is nonabrasive. Even the softest paper towels are abrasive.

Take Measures to Prevent Sun Damage

Blocking the sun’s UV rays from the interior of your car will help to keep your car’s leather interior in good condition. When you are not driving your car, park it in a roofed area. If this is not possible, park it in a shaded area and be sure that you use a windshield sun blocker that can be placed on the front and back windows of your car. Never allow your car’s interior to get too hot as your leather will fade and its lifespan will be shortened.
