Re: Best way to clean and maintain leather seats

Using 2 microfiber towels, one to apply and one to wipe off access product, I'll clean the leather with this product:

Gold Class Leather & Vinyl Cleaner | Meguiar's

Then once a month, use this:

Ultimate Leather Balm | Meguiar's

Re: Best way to clean and maintain leather seats

Does the Meguiars Balm soften/ease creases on the seat? The area where my wallet sits has started to crease after 4 months now. Not too bad but still a noticeable crease on the left side pad. When I worked an automotive upholstery shop during a summer in college we would use steam and dry heat to remove the creases but obviously no one has an upholstery steamer on hand to remove creases on demand.

Re: Best way to clean and maintain leather seats

I wish I could answer that question but I just don't know. An easy way to find out though is to get on to Meguiar's forums and ask that question. Someone from Meguiar's will eventually answer your question but more than likely, a professional detailer will help you out. Be ready to post a picture and good luck!

Re: Best way to clean and maintain leather seats

Why don't you just take your wallet out of your pocket before you sit. That will avoid any creases in that area.

Re: Best way to clean and maintain leather seats

It sounds like the damage is done and he's trying to undo it. I'm sure he stopped doing what he was doing once he noticed the damage.

Re: Best way to clean and maintain leather seats

Put you wallet in your front pocket or somewhere else. Along with damaging your seats it also affects your spinal alignment while your driving or sitting on. Over a long period of time you'll have more issues then creases in your seat.

Best way to clean and maintain leather seats

Get any kind of leather and plastic cleaner (doesn't have to be expensive. All purpose cleaner would be fine), get a piece of ultra fine steel wool. Spray a few times onto the seat (make sure seat is slightly damp entirely DO NOT USE THE STEEL WOOL ON ANY LEATHER OR PLASTIC SURFACE DRY!!!)

Use steel wool & scrub with a light to medium pressure over entire seat until the chemical starts to activate, and turns white. Then use a microfiber towel to wipe dry. (Use air compressor to blow out cracks & seams in seats that collect dirt over time.)

Also works well on door panels, dash boards. Etc. If you're a fan of the using "shine". Apply shine, after using steel wool throughout the entire interior for best results.

I've tried the ArmorAll Leather Wipes and it sucks..It leaves a film of the liquid that the wipes contain.

Re: Best way to clean and maintain leather seats

I love the Leatherique product as it make my seats, doors, and dash softer to touch and brings out the color of the leather.
