  1. First vacuum the crevices of your seats to remove any dust, dirt, or debris.

  2. Once the debris has been removed, apply a pH-neutral cleaning solution to your upholstery, making sure to avoid getting any liquid cleaner into any perforations.

  3. Then, use a microfiber cloth and soft-bristled brush to gently clean the leather upholstery.

  4. After cleaning your seats, you’ll want to condition the leather to prevent cracks and dryness.

  5. Apply the conditioner, and gently work it into the leather in circles. Let the conditioner soak into the leather for about an hour before touching the upholstery.
