Leather car seats are quite a challenge to keep clean and shiny. Dirt, oil, grime, and sweat build up on the seats and they can become stained or even matted. Getting your seats cleaned by professional cleaners is a great way to maintain the value of your car and your appearance. Professional cleaners will ensure that stains do not build up on the seats and that your leather car seats look as good as new.
First, you need to know the cleaning process for your seats before you begin cleaning them. Most cars come with seats that have built in air cleaners but these are generally not enough to clean dirty leather car seats. In addition to using your car's air cleaner, you should use a separate vacuum cleaner to remove any dirt or debris that has built up on the seats. This process will take a few hours, depending on how heavily built up the dirt is.
After you have cleaned your seats, it is time to get to the good stuff! You should clean the leather conditioner. The conditioner can easily be removed from the leather conditioner tube but it can also be held in place with an old towel. If the conditioner is hard to remove from the tube, you may need to use both the towel and the conditioner pad. Once you have applied the conditioner to your seats, it is important to allow it time to soak. It is recommended that you allow the conditioner to soak for at least two hours.
Next, you will need to apply your uv protector to the cleaner pad. While the cleaner is soaking in the uv holder, it is a good idea to turn off the headlights and other daytime lights so you won't accidentally stain your leather honey leather conditioner.

Remember to allow your leather conditioner to sit for at least a day before applying the final layer of protective coating.
