Cleaning Leather Seats
I purchased a used 2014.5 Toyota Camry XLE. It has two tone gray/cream
leather seats. Whoever owned it before didn't clean them or had dirt on his
clothing, so parts of the driver's seat are dirty. I had the car professionally
detailed, but all of the dirt didn't come out. Is there something that can be
used besides the OTC cleaning for leather seats, such as, dawn + water +
Don't use soap on leather. Use a good leather cleaner and then a conditioner. Hard work is not optional ;)
If they are actual leather then use a good saddle soap and a small soft brush and a lot of elbow grease, then after they are really clean use a leather restore product to add some more essential oils back into the leather, more leather restore products need to stay on the leather for at least an hour or longer, thier may result in a slight darling of the leather but will even out through the hot months. Just follow directions and you should do fine. Both products worked wonders on my Cadillac seats didn't realize they were that dirty until I started cleaning them.
There is no way for me to mark this as a follow up, but I assume the detailer used a good leather cleaner, but what do you recommend?
I like Meguiar's products but Connolly products may be the best. There used to be a product called Liquid Leather that I loved but I don't think it is still available.
KEWI for the cleaner and I got the leather restore from Amazon no real brand name it just says leather restore on the bottle.
I don't believe the seats are "genuine" leather, but more like "pleather." Would the same products be good on it? I think genuine leather seats are for more high end cars.
Yes both of those will still work, I use them on my scooter seat.
