How do you deep clean your car seats?

What’s the best way to deep clean my car seats at home? I have two kids, so they get dirty really fast.

Your best deep cleaning options will actually depend on the kind of seats you have! Here are the best ways to clean the three most common types of car seats: For leather seats:
  • Wipe them down with a leather cleaner or mild soap.
  • Use a damp cloth to wipe off the solution.
  • Dry the seat with a towel.
  • Use a leather protectant or conditioner to prevent future stains.
For cloth seats:
  • Use a fabric or upholstery cleaner on the problem areas.
  • You can also use carpet cleaner and a stiff brush to remove stains
For vinyl seats:
  • Spray an all-purpose cleaner like Shout or Armor All on the seats.
  • Let it sit until the seats are dry.
  • If necessary, you can remove the excess cleaner with a damp cloth.
