Having leather seats is a responsibility, but it doesn’t have to be a lot of work. Let’s look at a few aspects of caring for leather seats.

Avoiding Excessive Sunlight

VIP European Auto recommends always using a sunshield and window screens if you have leather seats. Although leather seats are very durable, excessive exposure to the sun’s rays can cause leather to fade and eventually crack over time. If you have the option to park somewhere with shade, go for it! Phoenix is a sunny town, and that isn’t always an option, which is why owning sunscreens and shades is so important.

Condition and Clean

Conditioning and cleaning is one of the responsibilities of owning leather seats. It will help them stay like new, which is what you want anyway! First you should vacuum the seats. Next, apply a gentle cleaner which has been designed for use on leather interiors. Finally, apply a conditioner which will help the seats stay pliable. It will also prevent cracking and other signs of wear.
