If you have leather interior in your vehicle, undoubtedly that is a sign of luxury. Remember that car upholstery cleaning of leather interior should be done with proper care and attention.
Pay great attention not to scratch the seats while you are cleaning them. Leather seats should be cleaned with professional leather car upholstery cleaner. Read the instructions on the label before applying the preparation. After you have read them, test the preparation on small invisible area of the upholstery. Carefully clean the seats with clean damp cloth. Make sure you have wiped down all the preparation, you have applied. Allow the seats to dry completely. Open the doors or windows of the car to speed up the drying process.
Don’t forget you should use leather conditioner to nourish the leather and give it sparkling look. Leather conditioner will prevent the surface of the seats to become dry which may leads to cracking. Always read the labels of leather conditioners to learn when the best time to apply the product is.
The main advantage of leather interior is that it “hides” stains very well and people believe it is easier for maintenance, being compared to fabric car seats. However, not everyone can afford leather interior. If you have fabric car interior, you have to clean it every week and remove the stains immediately when they appear. If you remove the stains as soon as possible, there would be no need to guess what the reason for the stain is. Knowing what has caused the stain is the key to successful removal.
Spilt liquids should be absorbed immediately with paper towels. If there is blood stain on your upholstery, the only way to clean it is with cold water. Pay attention not to apply hot water because that will make the stain persistent. You can use natural methods for refreshing the air inside the car. Placed bowls of white vinegar for a night will eliminate offensive odors. The same goal you will accomplish if you spread baking soda on the upholstery and leave it for a night.
