How to clean and condition your leather.

Leather seats have always been the staple of luxury and brought tremendous pride to vehicle owners.  Leather seats look excellent, feel comfortable and last quite a long time with the proper cleaning, conditioning and protection.  Leather cleaners are designed to safely remove contaminates that clog the leather’s pores and make the leather look dirty.  Leather conditioners replace proteins and other natural properties that fade from leather.  UV protection can be provided to most synthetic and coated leather surfaces to help prevent fading from the sun.  The three basic types of seats are synthetic leather (leatherette), coated leather and raw leather.  These materials all have a slightly different look and feel but they are cared for almost exactly the same.  No matter what type seat you have it’s important to care for your leather on a regular basis.  Over time the leather will loose some of its natural properties which allow the leather to expand and contract when passengers get in and out of the vehicle.  Dry seats are less flexible so they are more likely to crack and crease.  By removing contaminates and replacing the lost proteins you can keep your leather looking excellent for decades to come.



Leatherique Rejuvenator Oil and Prestine Clean - Product Directions:

  1. Vacuum up loose debris and contaminates from your leather, especially around crevices and seams. Be careful that your vacuum’s tip does not scratch the leather.
  2. Wipe down the seats with a slightly damp cloth or microfiber towel to help remove loose contaminates.
  3. Pour the Rejuvenator Oil on your hand or a clean applicator pad and work it in to the leather’s surface. You should apply 1 – 4 ounces per seat depending on the leather’s condition. Make sure you thoroughly apply the Rejuvenator Oil around cracks, seems and stitching.
  4. Put your vehicle in direct sun for several hours and keep the windows up to create a sauna like affect or you can turn on your heated seats. The heat will help open up the pores of the leather and allows the Rejuvenator Oil to further penetrate the leather. If you’re going to let your vehicle sit in the sun you may want to apply at least 2 ounces of the Rejuvenator Oil so it can continue to soak in to the leather.
  5. Pour the Prestine Clean on a clean applicator pad and work it into the leather, which will have some of the Rejuvenator Oil on them still. Each seat will typically require .5 – 2 ounces for a thorough cleaning. Let the Prestine Clean sit for 10 – 15 minutes.
  6. Thoroughly wipe the area with a damp microfiber cloth to remove contaminates that have risen to the surface and any excess product. Use a clean cloth and fold it in fourths so you can continuously use a clean side of the towel.
  7. Follow up with a dry microfiber towel to ensure the seats are dry.
