When you think luxury car, you think leather seats. There's nothing quite like sliding into your vehicle onto smooth, creamy seats that are well taken care of. They make everything feel much more high class.
If you don't take care of your leather seats, you could run into the problem. Every day, those seats go through wear and tear even when you're not sitting in the driver's seat.
If you're looking for the best practices when it comes to leather seat protection, keep reading. We'll show you how to take care of your diesel truck inside and out.
Prevention is Key
If you notice cracks, tears, or stains in your leather seats, you're coming in late to the game.
The best way to keep your leather seats looking sharp and new is to keep them clean and conditioned during your day to day wear.
Cleaning Leather Seats
The most important thing to keep in mind is cleanliness. If your seats are filthy, they're not going to be nice for long.
So, if your seats need a deep cleaning, follow these simple steps to get them there.
First, you need to clear your car of dirt and debris. In our daily lives, we carry around a lot of gunk that we don't notice and as we get in and out of our trucks, we knock that debris loose and it dirties up our space.
So take some time to move your seat around and get in all the nooks and crannies. Vacuum these little particles out so that they don't scratch up the leather as you clean the seat later on.
2. Cleaning the Leather
Now that you cleared the area of any large particles, it's time to get down to the nitty-gritty. Pick a nice leather cleaner (remember, you get what you pay for) and spray that down onto the surface of your leather seats.
Then, use a soft brush to scrub any areas that are especially dirty or discolored. Take your time on this step and try not to scrub too hard or too fast. You don't want to cause more damage to the seats by beating them up anymore.
Focus on the areas where skin and hair touch the leather. These are the spots where oils are more likely to gather and make your leather seats grubby.
Then you need to wipe the area dry and allow it to sit for a few hours for it to dry.
The Most Important Part of Leather Seats Protection: Conditioning
Now that your seats are clean, it's time for the most important part of leather seat protection. A lot of people don't think about leather seats as something they need to condition to maintain.
Take your leather conditioner and rub it all over your leather seats. Make sure you coat them all over and don't let any collect in the crevices.
A good conditioner will stop your leather from cracking and will protect them from the sun.
Clean Your Diesel Inside and Out!
Your leather seats are as much of a part of your diesel truck as any other. So it's important that you focus on leather seat protection if you want your truck to look as good as it did the day you drove it off the lot.
