  • Vacuum. You will first need to start off this process by vacuuming your seats to get rid of all dirt, debris, and small residue that will ruin the life cycle of your upholstery over time. An inexpensive handheld vacuum cleaner will do the trick.
  • Cleaning solution. Apply cleaning solution to a microfibre cloth. This can be a retail leather cleaner or a diy solution made up of mostly water and a small amount of dish soap.
  • Microfibre cloth. Then scrub your seats with the cloth after the solution has been applied.
  • Dry. Use another cloth to wipe your seats completely dry immediately so that you do not get mold.
