Restoring leather car seats is a process of cleaning and conditioning the leather regularly. Use a high-quality Lexol cleaner in addition to a leather conditioner with help from the owner of an auto detail shop in this free video on car maintenance.
Hi my name is Diesel and I am the owner and operator of 4U2C Mobile Auto Detailing here in beautiful Hotlanta, Georgia. Now I'm going to show you how to restore a leather eat. Now this right here once again is an Oldsmobile 442, brand new leather interior so there is nothing to really restore but I want to show you how to clean it and condition it. If you start having tears and cracks it is best to leave that up to a professional maybe a professional upholstery shop or they actually have companies that actually spray dye into it and fix it that way but one thing you want to do is I like to use Lexol, use a Lexol cleaner. You spray it on the seat, rub it in real good until you get a lather and then you wipe it off. The final stages you want to condition it. You always want to keep your leather seats conditioned, especially the driver's side because that is the one that you use the most. Basically what you would do is I would take a towel. I would spray it right on the seat but this right here tends to splatter so I actually spray it on the rag, and I just rub it on the seat in a circular motion, rub it in real good, try to get in all the crevices, all the little cracks, get a good coating over it, let it sit for a minute then you actually take another towel or turn your towel over and buff it in. That would give it a nice little luster. You don't want it to be too shiny. A lot of people get the misconception that a leather seat should be really shiny. You don't want to do that because it doesn't look natural. You want to get a nice little sheen over the seat and that's basically it. Now a thing that I like to do sometimes is I usually like to use my bare hands on applying the conditioner. You can do that also. It doesn't wipe off the conditioner as much, either way you do it you should have a really good looking seat when you are finished. Once again that's how you clean and condition a leather seat.
