It isn’t difficult to maintain the leather in your car, still, there seems to be many many different methods. Some people say to use a vacuum first, and some say you should scrub it with a brush or use a sponge. I even saw one video that encourages people to use a steam cleaner. There was another with Mr. Bubbles and Simple Green, except, these are very harsh cleaners that will damage the coatings on your leather. Other folks want to treat car leather by using oils that range from lanolin to needs foot.
I think what happens is that companies ask their chemical departments to make a leather cleaner for them, and they do. This results in harsh chemicals and soaps being applied to your leather while you think you are cleaning it.
The difference here at Leather Only is that we use Leather Only on a daily basis to clean our customers car seats and furniture. We have been working on Leather Only for over 20 years and believe that our products are the most advanced in the industry. Every day we are looking for ways to improve the performance of Leather Only. Our major concern in structuring the ingredients that go into Leather Only is feedback from our customers.
To understand what needs to be done to car seat leather, it is necessary to understand how the leather for a car seat is made. Leather car seats are made from chrome tanned leather; the leather that is also used to make furniture. The major difference between car leather and furniture leather being that car leather has a heavy duty clear protective coating that is applied on top of the color coating. We need to remember that leather in the car sits out in the weather and goes through extreme changes from hot to cold and back again. Car leather also receives much more wear than the average sofa or chair. So it stands to reason that the color coatings and the clear protective coatings would need to be heavy-duty.
Remember that these coatings are put on by the manufacturer. The last thing we want to do is damage our clear protective coating by scrubbing or moistening them. We also do not want to damage it with a harsh cleaner of any kind. If we remove our clear coating, the secondary color coating is naturally tacky. It is made to grab onto the protective clear coating that is on top of it. If your car leather is tacky, more than likely the clear coating has been removed and you are touching the secondary coating.
We are currently in hundreds of car dealerships around the United States
