How do you keep a Tesla’s white seats clean?

My new Tesla Model X is going to be delivered next week. I chose the white seats because I thought they’d look cool, but I didn’t think about how dirty they could get. How can I keep my Tesla’s white seats clean?

While an all-white interior looks sleek, it is more sensitive to dirt and stains. To keep your
Model X’s
white seats clean, you have a few options:
  • Regularly clean your seats. Mild soap, water, and a microfiber cloth can help keep your seats clean.
  • Use wipes. Many people trust baby wipes or all-purpose wipes to clean their seats. Typically, they are gentle enough to clean without damaging the material.
  • Visit a detailer. Many detailers specialize in white interiors and have professional cleaning tools.
If you decide to stick with a DIY method of keeping your seats clean, be sure to test any product in an inconspicuous space first to ensure you don’t damage the material.
You can also prevent dirt and stains in your Tesla by:
  • Applying a protective coating: Several brands make protective leather or ceramic coatings to protect your seats. You’ll only need to apply it once every few years.
  • Buying seat covers: Be sure to choose reputable brands for seat covers. Some covers have been known to stain white seats.
  • Avoid eating or drinking in your car: Drinks like coffee and tea stain materials, but water is still a safe option.
Beyond protecting the white interior, you’ll also need the proper car insurance coverage on your new Tesla. If you’d like help finding the best insurance, use the number-one-rated car insurance app,
