How can you protect your leather car seats?

I took my dogs to the vet recently, and my leather seats were ripped up so badly I replaced them. I want to keep these new seats looking their best. What are some good tips for protecting car leather?

Yikes! After replacing your seats it makes sense you want to keep them in the best shape.
There are a few steps to follow to keep your seats in tip-top shape.
First, vacuum your seats regularly to get rid of any dust or debris that could be lodged in the crevices and cause damage.
Then, use a leather cleaner to safely clean the seats. A special leather cleaner is necessary to prevent any additional damage from products that could harm the material. Use a microfiber towel to wipe down any excess dust or cleaning residue.
After using the cleaner, it’s smart to apply a leather conditioner to prevent the material from drying out. This also prevents discoloration from the sun. Leave the conditioner for several hours, then wipe the residue with a microfiber towel.
It’s also a good idea to look into seat covers, especially if you plan on driving with your dogs often.
While it’s unlikely your car insurance policy will cover this damage, it’s smart to make sure you have the best car insurance in case your car suffers damage from an accident or other event.
