Tips for Protecting Leather Interior
Whether you just purchased a new ride or you are looking to spruce up your current one, vehicles with leather
interior require a special level of maintenance and care. In this article, we will go over a few things that vehicle
owners can do to keep their leather interior in pristine condition.
Throw Some Shade
Harmful UV rays beaming in through your vehicle's windows can wreak havoc on your leather interior. A great way to
keep the sun's rays from damaging your leather interior is to install the WeatherTech SunShade. Designed specifically for your vehicle,
the SunShade fits snugly to your vehicle's windows allowing little to no sunlight in. The SunShade's reflective
surface deflects sunlight away protecting your seats with ease.
Clean and Condition
Perhaps the most important thing a vehicle owner can do to keep their leather interior in great condition is to
clean and condition their interior regularly. First, vacuum any dirt or debris that has accumulated. Once vacuumed,
apply a leather cleaner with a microfiber pad. Use the pad or a soft bristled brush to get in all the cracks or
trouble areas. After the interior has been cleaned, wipe the seats dry with a cloth or towel. The seats may still be
a bit damp at first which is completely normal. After the seats have completely dried, apply a leather conditioner
such as WeatherTech TechCare Leather Conditioner
with aloe vera. Be sure to apply the conditioner evenly. An even application will ensure that the entire
surface will be protected. After application, allow the conditioner ample time to fully absorb. Once the conditioner
has been fully absorbed, wipe dry with a clean cloth. Regular cleaning and conditioning will help avoid cracking and
tearing caused by unconditioned, dried out, and sun damaged seats.
Cleaning, conditioning, and keeping the sun out are great ways to protect your vehicle's interior but there may be
times when you need an extra level of protection. If you have messy passengers, transport items in your backseat or
have a pet that loves car rides, covering your leather upholstery with a WeatherTech Seat Protector is the best choice for
optimal protection. Seat protectors put a physical barrier in between any potential hazard and your leather
upholstery. Offering your interior the highest level of protection from the elements.
