How to Clean Mazda Leather Car Seats

No matter how hard you try to keep your Mazda’s genuine leather seats clean, they’re bound to take on some dirt at some point. This can be especially true during the summer vacation and road trip season, when many families will be drinking and eating in their vehicles. If things get spilled on your vehicle’s seats, don’t fret. We’ll show you how to clean Mazda leather car seats so that spills and dirt don’t harm your vehicle.

 

First of all, if spills do occur inside your vehicle, the best thing you can do is clean them up as soon as possible. But even if you’re just now noticing old dirt and messes, you should be able to follow the steps down below to get your Mazda’s cloth or leather seats back in clean condition.

Tips for Cleaning Mazda Leather Seats

Leather SeatsSince the genuine leather seats in your Mazda are a natural material, they will require more complex care than the either cloth or leatherette seats. Though this extra care can take a little more time, it will be well worth it down the road when your leather seats are still in prime condition.

  1. Clean up loose dirt using a vacuum. If you wipe up dirt with a broom, ensure the bristles are particularly soft to avoid causing unnatural scratches.
  2. Use a soft cloth to wipe down the seats with a leather cleaner or mild soap. If you have vinyl/leatherette seats, use a leather-and-vinyl cleaner. If you’re unsure which products would be safe to use on your seats, you can contact our service team for assistance. In general, however, avoid products containing things like alcohol, chlorine bleach or benzene, as discoloration can occur.
  3. Wipe off any excess cleaner or soap still on the seats with a clean, damp cloth. Avoid leaving the product on for any extended period of time.
  4. Make sure you dry the leather seats with a clean cloth to avoid damage like hardening or shrinkage. It might be necessary to allow the seats to dry further by placing your vehicle in a well ventilated area out of the sun.
  5. Keep in mind that you should take the time to maintain the leather seats in your vehicle about twice each year in order to keep them in good condition.
