How do I condition leather car seats?

The seats in my 2003 Honda Pilot have seen better days. How do I condition leather to make them look at least a little better?

Answer
You can use a leather cleaner and conditioner to improve the condition of your seats.
Here are some steps to take to spruce up your leather seats:
  • Check your car’s manual for specific instructions about caring for your seats, including any warnings about products to avoid.
  • Vacuum up dirt, crumbs, and other things that can settle in the crevices of the seat. Wiping the seat without getting this debris out means you’ll just be spreading them around.
  • Use a soft-bristled brush to gently wipe the areas that need cleaning with leather cleaner.
  • Wipe dry with a clean microfiber towel to absorb excess moisture. The seats may still feel wet for a while, but any remaining moisture will evaporate on its own in about 24 hours.
  • Rub a high-quality leather cleaner generously across the seat surface with a soft cloth, and let the leather absorb it for a few hours. This will restore the appearance of the leather without risking damage.
